Hi,

Sorry for not updating so often, I was quite busy and as you know, there is only 24 hours in a day 🙂

Go back to our main subject, Merethis has released Centreon 2.2.0

Let-s try to update our ‘old’ config :

cd /usr/local/src
sudo wget http://download.centreon.com/index.php?id=153
sudo tar -xzf centreon-2.2.0.tar.gz
cd centreon-2.1.9
cp  www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2.sql_to_2.2.0.sql www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2_to_2.2.0.sql
sudo ./install.sh -u /etc/centreon

Beware and copy the sql file to a new one as there is an error in a filename. If you don’t, you’ll see version 2.2RC2 and not 2.2.0. This will be fixed in version 2.2.1.

After accepting the license, simply answer yes to all the questions you’ll see.

When finished, connect to the web interface and follow the “NEXT, NEXT, NEXT” steps fo finishing the database upgrade process.

It’s finished.

If you are using syslog module, you’ll have to upgrade it as only 1.4.1 works with Centreon 2.2.0

Installing the frontend

tar xvfz centreon-syslog-frontend-1.4.1.tar.gz
cd  centreon-syslog-frontend-1.4.1
sudo ./install.sh -u /etc/centreon

After finishing the install, go to your web interface and upgrade your syslog module. Your syslog will work again.
