Automatically install CDRouter using the web interface

On CDRouter systems with an active internet connection, a notification banner will be displayed within the main header of the CDRouter web interface whenever a new release is available.

Clicking on the link in the notification banner will open the System > Upgrade page. Enter your email address and click the Check for Updates… button. If a newer release of CDRouter is available, follow the instructions provided on the page to automatically download and install it. This is the easiest and fastest way to upgrade a CDRouter system to the latest release.

Manually install CDRouter using the web interface

On CDRouter systems without an active internet connection (or to upgrade or downgrade to a specific version of CDRouter) specific releases of CDRouter can also be installed manually using the drag and drop feature within the web interface.

To utilize this feature, download the appropriate CDRouter binary from the Software Downloads section of the Customer Lounge. Note that CDRouter binaries are named using the convention cdrouter_X.Y.Z-1_x86_64.bin (where X.Y.Z indicates the release number).

From the System > Upgrade page the downloaded CDRouter binary can be installed using the drag and drop feature within the Manual Upgrade section.

Manually install CDRouter using the command line

Specific releases of CDRouter can also be installed manually from the command line as a user with root-level permissions.

To perform a manual installation via the command line, download a CDRouter binary from the Software Downloads section of the Customer Lounge. Note that CDRouter binaries are named using the convention cdrouter_X.Y.Z-1_x86_64.bin (where X.Y.Z indicates the release number).

After copying the downloaded binary to the CDRouter system, make it executable using this command:

$ chmod 755 cdrouter_11.2.1-1_x86_64.bin

Next, run the binary to install CDRouter:

$ ./cdrouter_11.2.1-1_x86_64.bin
