Upgrading Philter

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.

Make local copies of your current Philter’s properties files.

  • /opt/philter/philter.properties (prior to 1.10.1 the filename was /opt/philter/application.properties)
  • /opt/philter/philter-ui.properties (not applicable prior to version 1.10)

Launch a new instance of the newest version of Philter.

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

Restart Philter:

sudo systemctl restart philter.service
sudo systemctl restart philter-ui.service

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

Decommission the old Philter instance.
