    # rpm -Uvh http://rpm.repo.onapp.com/repo/onapp-repo-6.1.noarch.rpm
  2. Upgrade OnApp Control Panel installer package:

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

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