Upgrading Alfresco from 201701-GA to 201702-GA

by / Saturday, 18 February 2017 / Published in Blog
My experience at Alfresco Meetup at London (March 1, 2017)
Our road from Alfresco 5.1.g to Alfresco 201701

Since we upgraded this week our internal server to Alfresco 201701-GA, today a new release 201702-GA is available. Following steps can be performed to apply this new release.

Identifying changed components

Components has been downloaded for every version from Alfresco Community web page:

A comparing process has been performed by using an external program:

  • amps/alfresco-share-services.amp
  • bin/alfresco-mmt.jar
  • web-server/webapps/ROOT.war
  • web-server/webapps/alfresco.war
  • web-server/webapps/share.war
  • web-server/webapps/solr4.war

As we installed SOLR 6, is not required to upgrade solr4.war.

Applying the changes

Stop Alfresco.

$ service alfresco stop

Copying new resources to Alfresco installation folders.

$ cp 201702/amps/alfresco-share-services.amp /opt/alfresco/amps
$ cp 201702/bin/alfresco-mmt.jar /opt/alfresco/bin
$ cp 201702/web-server/webapps/*.war /opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/

Applying our configuration to new web apps.

$ /opt/alfresco/bin/apply_amps.sh

Start Alfresco.

$ service alfresco start

It’s done!

Minor upgrading in an easy task in Alfresco, when having a properly maintained server.
