Important Notes

  1. You must be running the latest patch of OnApp 5.0 version to upgrade to 5.1 version. If you are using an earlier version, please upgrade to 45.30.first.
  2. Check the Activity Log in your OnApp CP dashboard if there are no transactions running in your cloud. If so, wait until all transactions are complete.
  3. Make sure no Control Panel files are open for editing under the root user account.

  4. If you are using a third-party billing platform, please ensure that this is compatible with OnApp 5.1 before proceeding with the upgrade! The latest WHMCS modules can be found here.

  5. If you are using WHMCS modules, make sure to update the PHP Wrapper after you update OnApp Cloud. Download the latest wrapper.

  6. Be aware that from now on, OnApp Licensing has a standalone client.Use only 443 port to connect from Control Panel to licensing server.
  7. We strongly recommend that you test all your custom scripts before upgrading your production environment.

  8. Be aware that OnApp does not support UEFI on static compute resources. You should disable UEFI on your compute resources before installing OnApp.
