Upgrade from 2.1.9.x or older

In by castcontrol

Linux Upgrade

MediaCP now operates stand-alone and includes it’s own web server, database server, ftp server and utilities bundled. MediaCP 2.2.x operates on port 2000 and your panel will be redirected automatically to http://your-domain:2000 after upgrade.

To upgrade to 2.2.0, please use the standard upgrade script which will automatically detect your previous version and perform a migrate. The migrate tool will perform the following tasks:

  • Install MediaCP 2.2.x to /usr/local/mediacp/
  • Copy your database to MediaCP own mysql service and updates file paths
  • Move your [MediaCP]/content directory to /usr/local/mediacp/content
  • Stops all media services in 2.1.9.x
  • Starts all media services in 2.2.x running as user mediacp
  • Upgrade Wowza Streaming Engine to latest supported version

Important Notes!

  • Please make sure there is enough space in /usr/local/ for the content/ directory to be moved.
  • As the entire database is copied, we recommend clearing the Advanced Reporting Statistics before beginning the upgrade to 2.2.x from Admin -> System Config -> RESET Reporting Statistics.
