Upgrading H-Sphere to 2.3.2 Release


This document explains how to upgrade H-Sphere from:
- 2.3.1 Betas
- 2.3.1 RCs
- 2.3.1 Final
- 2.3.1 Patches 1 to 9
to 2.3.2 Release. If you have H-Sphere older than 2.3.1, make sure to upgrade your H-Sphere to 2.3.1 Final first.

This patch eliminates an account information security hole.

1. Owners of 2.4 betas - DON'T update to version 2.3.2.
2. To ensure correct performance of new features, upgrade your winbox to 2.3.1.


  1. Make sure to have any of the 2.3.1 versions installed:
    # cat ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/hsphere.properties | grep HS_VERSION
  2. Download 2.3.2 Release installation package from the Positive Software site:
    * Make sure the directory you are downloading it to doesn't contain any other U23.2 file!
  3. Stop H-Sphere using one of the following commands:
    Linux + ApacheJServ:
    # /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpdcp stop
    FreeBSD + ApacheJserv:
    # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apachecp.sh stop
    Any OS + Tomcat:
    # ~cpanel/tomcat/tomcat.sh stop
  4. Run the update script by typing:
    sh ./U23.2
    Note: The help shows. Choose what you want to update and follow the help.
  5. To update H-Sphere, type:
    # install
  6. To update your SiteStudio to 1.6 RC3, type:
    # ss
    If your SiteStudio is installed on a separate server, log into that server as root and perform this procedure skipping the update of H-Sphere and WebShell.
  7. If you updated SiteStudio, restart your SiteStudio ImageMaker. The simplest way to do it is type:
    # killall java
    Kill these processes one by one if you have any other java processes running.
  8. Start H-Sphere CP using one of the following commands:
    Linux + ApacheJServ:
    # /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpdcp start
    FreeBSD + ApacheJserv:
    # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apachecp.sh start
    Any OS + Tomcat:
    # ~cpanel/tomcat/tomcat.sh start
  9. Check the version of H-Sphere using the following command:
    # cat ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/hsphere.properties | grep HS_VERSION

    You will see a line similar to this:
    2.3.2 is the version of H-Sphere,
    386 is H-Sphere build,
