Upgrade the package

From a YUM installation

If you installed manifold via yum, shell into the server as root and execute the following:

yum update manifold

From a manual installation

If you installed manually via an .rpm file, shell into the server as root and execute the following:

cd ~
curl -O https://storage.googleapis.com/manifold-dist/centos7/manifold-5.1.3-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

# Upgrade the package
rpm -Uvh manifold-5.1.3-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

# It is safe to remove the package file
rm -v manifold-5.1.3-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

Stop services and reconfigure

Stop all Manifold services with manifold-ctl stop. Then run manifold-ctl reconfigure to ensure that all configuration is current. Once that’s complete, you can restart the services with manifold-ctl start.

/usr/local/bin/manifold-ctl stop
/usr/local/bin/manifold-ctl reconfigure
/usr/local/bin/manifold-ctl start
