How to upgrade FOP2 to a newer version
Posted by: Nicolás Gudiño Posted on: Mar-10th, 2016 18:26

If your license is older than a year, you will have to purchase the "Annual software maintenance" ($20) from http://www.fop2.com/buy.php

You will receive an email with an upgrade code that you must apply by running this command:

/usr/local/fop2/fop2_server --upgrade

Type the upgrade code you got via email when prompted. If everything is ok you will get a success message.

Now is time to do the actual upgrade, for that you must download the file, extract it and run "make" to install it over your current version.

If you use a 32 bits Centos based Linux, run:

cd /usr/src
rm -f fop2.tgz
wget http://www.fop2.com/download/centos32 -O fop2.tgz

For a 64 bits Centos system run:

cd /usr/src
rm -f fop2.tgz
wget http://www.fop2.com/download/centos64 -O fop2.tgz

For a 32 bits Debian/Ubuntu system run:

cd /usr/src
rm -f fop2.tgz
wget http://www.fop2.com/download/debian32 -O fop2.tgz

For a 64 bits Debian/Ubuntu system run:

cd /usr/src
rm -f fop2.tgz
wget http://www.fop2.com/download/debian64 -O fop2.tgz

Once the download is comlpleted, extract the file and install it, and finally restart the service:

tar zxvf fop2.tgz
cd fop2
make
service fop2 restart

That is all.
