How to upgrade FOP2

Upgrade the License

You can only apply an upgrade code if you have an active an valid FOP2 license.
You cannot do it after code revocation, or after a server reinstallation that
might invalidate your license.

If your license is older than a year, you will have to purchase the "Annual software maintenance" ($20) from our online shop.

After purchasing, you will receive an email in a few minutes with an upgrade code. You must apply that code to your license by running this command:

/usr/local/fop2/fop2_server --upgrade

You will be prompted to type the upgrade code you received earlier. Go ahead, and hit ENTER when done. If everything is ok you will get a success message.

Download the new version

Now is time to do the actual upgrade, for that you must just run this command:

wget -O - | bash

That is all. You can now point your browser to http://your.server/fop2 to log into it. Be sure to clear your browser cache to be sure it will download the newly upgraded files instead of the old cached ones.
