Describes how to upgrade Philter to a newer version.

We recommend reviewing the Philter Release Notes prior to upgrading.

Upgrading from a 1.x Version

Upgrading Philter to the newest version requires moving Philter's configuration to the new version of Philter. To upgrade Philter from a 1.x version, follow the steps below.

  1. Make local copies of your current Philter's properties files.

    1. opt/philter/philter.properties (prior to 1.10.1 the filename was /opt/philter/application.properties)

    2. /opt/philter/philter-ui.properties (not applicable prior to version 1.10)

  2. Launch a new instance of the newest version of Philter.

  3. Replace the new virtual machine's properties file with your copy from step 1.

  4. Restart Philter: sudo systemctl restart philter.service sudo systemctl restart philter-ui.service sudo systemctl restart philter-ner.service

  5. Test the new Philter virtual machine to make sure it is behaving appropriately.

  6. Decommission the old Philter instance.
