To upgrade PingDirectory Server, perform the following steps:

  1. Download and extract the new version of PingDirectory Server to a location outside the existing server's installation.
    For these steps, assume that the existing server installation resides in /prod/PingDirectory , and that the new server version is extracted to /home/stage/PingDirectory .
  2. To upgrade the existing PingDirectory Server, run the update tool that is provided with the new server package, as follows:
    $ /home/staging/PingDirectory/update --serverRoot /prod/PingDirectory

    If the tool detects any degree of customization, it might prompt for confirmation on server configuration changes.
