Upgrading from Debian Packages
The following instructions assume that you installed Manifold from a .deb file, and are updating that installation.
1. Download the most recent package
Shell into the server as root and download the most recent package.
On Ubuntu 16:
cd ~ curl -O https://storage.googleapis.com/manifold-dist/ubuntu16/manifold_5.1.3-1_amd64.deb
On Ubuntu 18:
cd ~ curl -O https://storage.googleapis.com/manifold-dist/ubuntu18/manifold_5.1.3-1_amd64.deb
2. Install the Package
dpkg -i manifold_5.1.3-1_amd64.deb
Because it contains all dependencies, the omnibus package is rather large. Updating with
dpkg will take a fair amount of time, so be patient and let the installer run.
3. 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
/usr/local/bin/manifold-ctl stop /usr/local/bin/manifold-ctl reconfigure /usr/local/bin/manifold-ctl start
Once this process is complete, visit the fully qualified domain name in your browser. Depending on the hosting environment, restarting Manifold can take a minute or two, so please be patient.
