Chapter 6. Upgrading JBoss Web Server

Note

The JBoss Web Server 5.0 can run on the same system as previous releases, however, this is not supported.

For systems using the JBoss Web Server 3.1, the recommended procedure for upgrading to the JBoss Web Server 5.0 is:

  1. Shutdown any running instances of JBoss Web Server 3.1.
  2. Backup the JBoss Web Server 3.1 installation and configuration files.
  3. Change the ports used by the JBoss Web Server 3.1 connectors if the ports used are 8080 or 8443.
  4. Install JBoss Web Server 5.0 using one of the following guides:

  5. Migrate your configuration from the JBoss Web Server 3.1

    Note

    The JBoss Web Server configuration files may have changed since the JBoss Web Server 3.1 release. It is recommended that you update the 5.0 version configuration files, rather than overwrite them with the configuration files from a different version (such as JBoss Web Server 3.1).

  6. Remove the JBoss Web Server 3.1:

    • For systems where JBoss Web Server 3.1 was installed from RPM packages, uninstall using:

      yum group remove jws3
    • For systems where JBoss Web Server 3.1 was installed from .zip archives, uninstall by deleting the JBoss Web Server 3.1 root directory.
