This section is going to guide you through the process of updating FusionReactor from 6.2.x version to the latest version available on a Linux machine. The instructions will only apply if you have used a Standard ( Manual ) installation. For more information about the Manual Installation process follow the link, Manual Installation.

For this example I have manually installed an Apache Tomcat8 server with a FusionReactor 6.2.10 instance on a Linux machine.

Getting Started

FusionReactor 6.2.10

From the  screenshot above you can see that I have installed manually a FusionReactor 6.2.10 instance. In order to start the update process, follow the steps listed below.

Step 1

In order to start the process of updating FusionReactor, you need to make sure that the application server you are using is not running. This can be achieved by executing the following commands via the terminal.

  • ps -ef | grep catalina: This command is going to show you if the tomcat 8 application server is running or not. 
    • If the application server is running, then stop the application server by executing the command ./ stop.
    • If the application server is not running, then you can continue to Step 2.

Step 2

Download the latest fusionreactor.jar file. This can be found here: FusionReactor Download Page.

If you have a FusionReactor Portal account, please visit the FusionReactor Portal and navigate to the Downloads tab in order to get the latest .jar file.

Step 3

Now that you have the latest fusionreactor.jar file, navigate to the directory below:

  • {fusionreactor}/instance/{instance name}/

In that directory you will find a fusionreactor.jar file that it used by the previous FusionReactor version. Remove this file and add the latest fusionreactor.jar file.

Step 4

Restart your application server.

This can be done by executing the following command via the terminal, ./ start.

When you have completed this step, access FusionReactor via your Browser and you will be able to see that the version of FusionReactor is now up to date.

FusionReactor 7.0.5

Please make sure that the current user used has enough permissions to execute the fusionreactor.jar file from the /opt/fusionreactor/instance/{instance name} directory.
