When you start the Intrexx Portal Manager, you will
automatically be offered the option to update your software. By
updating your software, your version of Intrexx will have access to
current advances at all times. The update packets will be made
available on the United Planet update server. The software update can be set up in
such a way that it will automatically check for appropriate updates to your system,
when the Portal Manager is started.
The following three methods of update occur as follows:
- Update of the portal server and Portal Manager on the server system
- Pure portal server update on the server system
- Pure Portal Manager update (this variant can be executed directly from a client for the Portal Manager installed on the system).
An update of the portal server must always be run before the
Portal Manager can be updated. If you perform a software update,
you may be informed that you need to
restart the services.
Please note: When the services are restarted, processes, such as timer actions or data transfers, can be interrupted.
Therefore, it may make sense to perform the update when a transaction
of this type will not run throughout the duration of the update.
After the services have been restarted, users need to log in to the
portal again. If other actions are required, such as republishing
applications, then you will be informed of this during the
Please start the Portal Manager
installed on the server system in order to update the portal server.
The software update can be started at any time via the main menu item Extras
/ Software update.
If no connection to the internet exists, please create one. Click
to show the settings to the
internet. By clicking update
, the settings for software updates will be opened.
Installing the update
The update will, if it is run on the system on which the portal server
is installed, be accomplished for the Portal Manager and the portal
server at the same time.
If the software update is run from a Portal Manager on a client, the
currently connected portal server will not be updated. The update
packages will only be transferred to the portal server system. In this
case, a message will appear, notifying you that an update of the portal
server on the server system must be accomplished.
This principle ensures that the update for each portal server must be
accomplished before updating a Portal Manager on a client system. In
order to update the portal server, start the Portal Manager installed
on the server system.
If you do not wish to install the updates immediately, simply click
. The next time you start a software update from
menu, you will be again offered the
ability to install them, without requiring you to download the update
packages a second time.
After completing the download, the installation can be started in the
following window. A connection to the internet will no longer be
necessary and can be closed.
||Please note: For installations on a Linux headless
server: The installer must be executed with the system property
To do this, this option must be added to the
file /opt/intrexx/bin/linux/updinstall.sh in the following way:
