FTP Server Linux Upgrade

Postby pcamis » Tue Oct 25, 2011 1:06 pm

Would somebody be so kind as to post more detailed instructions on how to manually upgrade FTP Server running on Linux? Specifically, I am missing the correct steps to run so as to copy the downloaded files without losing my existing configuration. I currently have wftpserver running from the /bin directory.

My steps, with missing action, are:
Code: Select all
/etc/init.d/wftpserver stop
cd /tmp
wget http://www.wftpserver.com/download/wftpserver-linux-64bit.tar.gz
tar xzvf wftpserver-linux-64bit.tar.gz
cp /bin/wftpserver /bin/wftpserver_old
***CONFUSION***
/etc/init.d/wftpserver start

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Yes, it is easy. Backup the folder "Data" first, then do the following commands:

Code: Select all
cd /bin
wget http://www.wftpserver.com/download/wftpserver-linux-64bit.tar.gz
tar xzvf wftpserver-linux-64bit.tar.gz
/etc/init.d/wftpserver restart
