4.9. Upgrading SIMP¶
This section describes both the general, recommended upgrade procedures as well as any version-specific upgrade procedures.
To minimize upgrade problems in your production environment, we strongly recommend that you:
- Carefully read the CHANGELOG for the SIMP version to which you are upgrading, as well as the Changelogs for any interim versions you are skipping over.
- Test your upgrades in a development environment before deploying to a production environment.
- Backup any critical server data/configurations prior to executing the upgrade to a production environment.
- On each managed server, ensure you have a local user with
sshprivileges to prevent lockout.
