In any case before upgrading a major version read the document READ_BEFORE_UPDATE which is continuously updated in the Github repository. Note, that when you are upgrading over several major versions, read all the comments for all versions.
If you installed privacyIDEA via DEB or RPM repository you can use the normal system ways of apt-get, aptitude and yum to upgrade privacyIDEA to the current version.
If you want to upgrade an old Ubuntu installation from privacyIDEA 2.23 to privacyIDEA 3.0, please read the Note on legacy upgrades.
2.4.1. Different upgrade processes¶
Depending on the way privacyIDEA was installed, there are different recommended update procedures. The following section describes the process for pip installations. Instructions for packaged versions on RHEL and Ubuntu are found in Upgrading a packaged installation.
126.96.36.199. Upgrading a pip installation¶
If you install privacyIDEA into a python virtualenv like /opt/privacyidea, you can follow this basic upgrade process.
First you might want to backup your program directory:
tar -zcf privacyidea-old.tgz /opt/privacyidea
and your database:
source /opt/privacyidea/bin/activate pi-manage backup create
188.8.131.52.1. Running upgrade¶
Starting with version 2.17 the script
privacyidea-pip-update performs the
update of the python virtualenv and the DB schema.
Just enter your python virtualenv (you already did so, when running the backup) and run the command:
The following parameters are allowed:
--force skips the safety question, if you really want to update.
--skipstamp skips the version stamping during schema update.
--noshema completely skips the schema update and only updates the code.
184.108.40.206.2. Manual upgrade¶
Now you can upgrade the installation:
source /opt/privacyidea/bin/activate pip install --upgrade privacyidea
Usually you will need to upgrade/migrate the database:
Now you need to restart your webserver for the new code to take effect.
220.127.116.11. Upgrading a packaged installation¶
In general, the upgrade of a packaged version of privacyIDEA should be done using the default tools (e.g. apt and yum). In any case, read the READ_BEFORE_UPDATE file. It is also a good idea to backup your system before upgrading.
18.104.22.168.1. Ubuntu upgrade¶
If you use the Ubuntu packages in a default setup, the upgrade can should be done using:
apt update apt dist-upgrade
In case you upgrade from the old privacyIDEA 2.23.x to the version 3.x you have to change from your ppa sources to the new repositories. If you are upgrading your Ubuntu release, e.g. from 14.04 to 16.04 the principal steps are
Bring your Ubuntu 14.04 system up-to-date
Run the release upgrade (do-release-upgrade)
Eventually remove old repositories and add recent repositories as described in Add repository.
Reinstall/Upgrade privacyIDEA 3.x
privacyIDEA 2.x installed the python packages to the system directly. The packages in the repository instead come with a virtual python environment. This may cause lots of obsolete packages after upgrading which may be removed with:
22.214.171.124.2. CentOS upgrade¶
For a Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) installation run:
