Upgrading

This chapter describes how to upgrade your Centreon MAP server. This is done by upgrading the three main components:

  • Centreon MAP server
  • Centreon MAP web client & its widget
  • Desktop client (automatically updated).

Before upgrading Centreon MAP server, we highly recommand performing a MySQL dump (backup) of your centreon_studio database. This will allow you easily to roll back to the previous state if necessary.

Be sure to read the release notes for an explanation of features, fixes & custom procedures.

Warning

When upgrading from version < 18.10 to a version >= 18.10, you need to:

  • Retrieve a new license from Centreon support.
  • Make sure your Centreon MAP server is based on CentOS/RH 7. You may use the following procedure to migrate your server: Migrating your Centreon MAP server.
