Patch Installation

The instructions below are relevant if you already run OnApp 6.2.

Upgrade Control Panel Server

  • If you upgrade from OnApp >=6.2.0-146, run the following command:

    Run the Control Panel installer:

    # /onapp/onapp-cp-install/onapp-cp-install.sh --quick-update
  • If you upgrade from OnApp < 6.2.0-146, run the following steps (1-4). 

To upgrade your Control Panel server:

  1. Upgrade OnApp Control Panel installer package:

    # yum update onapp-cp-install
  2. Update your server OS components (if required):

    # /onapp/onapp-cp-install/onapp-cp-install.sh -y
  3. (Optional) If you need some custom Control Panel configuration, set the values before the installer script runs.

     The list of custom configuration options for Control Panel.
    # vi /onapp/onapp-cp.conf

    Template server URL


    # IPs (separated with coma) list for the SNMP to trap. This is the list of Control Panel IP addresses on which the traps sent from the compute resources are processed.


    # OnApp Control Panel custom version

    # Rotate transactions' log files created more than TRANS_LOGS_ROTATE_TIME day(s) ago


    # Maximum allowed for uploading file size in bytes, from 0 (meaning unlimited) to 2147483647 (2GB). Default is 0.

    # OnApp Control Panel SSL certificates (please do not change if you aren't familiar with SSL certificates)

    Please note, crond and all OnApp's cron tasks remain running. They could be disabled by stopping crond service manually for your own risk.

    -DDo not make database dump, and make sure it is disabled in the cron and not running at the moment.
    --quick|--quick-update[=SERVICE] Procceed with quick update procedure. This will skip update and configuration for services, such as system packages, MySQL database, Redis Server, RabbitMQ Server, and Monit service.

  5. Start OnApp related services (like onapp, onapp-licensing, httpd) if ‘—quick-update’ option was used for the installer.

Upgrade Static Backup Servers with Integrated Storage

  • If you upgrade from OnApp >=6.2.0-146, skip the upgrade static backup procedure.
  • If you upgrade from OnApp <6.2.0-146, run the following command:

    # yum update onappstore

    This step is necessary only for Integrated Storage on Static Servers under CentOS 7.x.
