How do I upgrade linux vpn server from tar?

Post by henrytodd » Fri May 06, 2016 4:37 pm

Hello,

I have Softether installed on linux (centos and ubuntu) from the tar file using make and the supplied install scripts. Everything has been working fine. Looks like there is a updated version. I could download the new version and do a make / install. However I'm not sure if doing it this way will retain my current settings.

Thanks in advance,

Mada

I just exported the config file and then imported it after upgrade. I changed operating system from windows to Linux and it worked. Just needed to reconfigure local bridge function.

if you installed via "make install" you can just download new tar, run configure, make and make install again.
The install script does not touch the configuration file. So if this exist, its still exist after the re-install and will be used.
