Checking for updates and updating

To check for availability of a new installation archive, do the following:

cd /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServer/bin
sudo ./webcallserver check_update
Updating the server can be done with the following commands:

cd /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServer/bin
sudo ./webcallserver update

To start the update you will need to confirm stopping the server.

If a new installation archive is available, it is downloaded to the /tmp directory and the update of the server is then started using -silent.

After the update completes, an update message is shown and the server is started.

When updating WCS to builds 5.2.801-5.2.864, it is necessary to stop WCS manually after update to launch WCS as service:

sudo ./webcallserver stop
systemctl restart webcallserver

Since build 5.2.871, WCS is automatically relaunched as service after update.

Free disk space checking before update

Since build 5.2.1981 a free disk space available is checked before update. If the free space is less then 1 Gb, the istallation process will be stopped without any changes, and the following message will be displayed

ERROR: Not enough space to install properly: less than 1048576 kbytes

A timeout for update checking and downloading

Since build 5.2.1981 it is possible to set a maximum timeout in seconds for update checking and downloading operations

sudo ./webcallserver check_update --update-timeout 10
sudo ./webcallserver update --update-timeout 10

The default timeout is 10 seconds.
