< All Topics

To upgrade an existing NP-Live server, the steps are:

  1. Download the latest release from the Network Perception Portal and copy it onto your NP-Live server using SCP (or WinSCP from a Windows client)
  2. Login onto the NP-Live server using SSH (or Putty from a Windows client)
  3. Get root permissions using the command: sudo -i
  4. Execute the new NP-Live release file using the command: sh NP-Live_installer.sh  (where NP-Live_installer.sh is the name of the new release file downloaded in step 1)
  5. Follow the guided steps of the installer, which will automatically start NP-Live once the upgrade is complete
  6. Connect to the user interface of NP-Live using your web browser and check in the bottom-left corner of the home page that the version number matches the new release

If the server upgrade or restart fails due to lack of disk space, please perform the following clean-up procedure:

  1. sudo rm -f /opt/np-live/db/log/system/nplive.log.*
  2. sudo docker system prune –volumes
  3. sudo rm /opt/np-live/docker-compose.yml.backup

If issues continue to occur during the upgrade, please reach out to the Tech Support team.
