Upgrade Instructions

These instructions apply to customers running 3.9.x or newer. Upgrading from CloudShark 3.8 is no longer supported.

Where to download

Updated installers are available by logging into your account on the QA Cafe Customer Lounge. Please be sure to select the correct installer for your distribution: either el7 for CentOS 7, or el8 for Rocky 8.

Copy the CloudShark installer onto your system

After downloading the CloudShark Installer to your computer, use WinSCP or another utility to copy the file over to your CloudShark system. If you are using the command line, you can use the ‘scp’ utility:

scp path/to/cloudshark-installer-<VERSION>.<DIST>.run root@cloudshark-ip:/tmp/

Then connect to your CloudShark server via ssh:

ssh root@cloudshark-ip

You or your IT department will have configured the root password when the system was created.

Run the installer

Switch to the /tmp directory and run the installer:

cd /tmp
chmod u+x /tmp/cloudshark-installer-<VERSION>.<DIST>.run

The installer will prompt you to confirm you wish to upgrade.


That’s it!

Visit your CloudShark system on port 443 and verify the footer contains the new version you are expecting to be running.
