Upgrade from Older Releases
PrivX upgrade from last 3 major versions is tested and therefore officially supported by SSH. To upgrade from older versions, you may perform either of the following:
- Upgrade via intermediate versions (recommended)
- Upgrade directly
These instructions apply to:
- PrivX Server
- PrivX Carrier
- PrivX Web Proxy
- PrivX Extender
Upgrade via Intermediate Versions
We recommend upgrading in 3-version increments until you reach the desired version. This guarantees that upgrade is performed in tested and supported increments.
For example if you are running on PrivX 19.x and aim to upgrade to PrivX 24, you would first upgrade three versions to 22, then perform another upgrade to version 24.
To upgrade via intermediate versions:
Back up your PrivX deployment.
Choose an intermediate version.
Review the version-specific release notes in case of special upgrade steps. Upgrade to the intermediary version following the upgrade instructions of that version.
If you are upgrading packages via the PrivX repository, you must provide the version number in the command. For example, upgrading PrivX Server specifically to version 22.2:
yum install PrivX-22.2
You may list the available package versions with:
yum --showduplicates list PrivX
Installing without a version number upgrades to the latest version.
Verify that PrivX works after upgrade.
Repeat the previous steps until you reach the target version.
You may try directly upgrading to the desired version. This works in most cases especially if the current version is just one or two versions behind official support. Make sure to take backups before upgrade, and verify PrivX functionalities after upgrade.
