Upgrading GlobalSight
Comparing GlobalSight with WorldServer

You can upgrade easily from one version of GlobalSight to a newer version using the GlobalSight Upgrade Installer.

To download the upgrade installer package and upgrade GlobalSight core application, follow the instructions below for Windows or Ubuntu.


Prerequisites

Before beginning, make sure that:

  • The GlobalSight service is stopped
  • The MySQL database server is running

Windows

Pre-upgrade procedures

  1. Download and unzip the GlobalSight Upgrade Installer package GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>.zip to local system
  2. Edit config.properties file to set GlobalSight application directory and certificate information to sign code for some Java applet components
    gsHome: the absolute path to GlobalSight application directory. Using forward slash as the path separator
    JKS: the absolute path to the certificate keystore file, uncomment it if needed. Using forward slash as the path separator
    keyPass: the passphrase/password of the certificate keystore file, uncomment it if needed
    keyAlias: the alias of the certificate keystore file, uncomment it if needed

Extra procedures for upgrading GlobalSight 8.6 to 8.6.7

  • Install Oracle JDK 8 and update system variable JAVA_HOME
    Oracle JDK 8 (at least jdk1.8.0_45) is required for GlobalSight version 8.6.3 and above.
  • Replace website header image
    Find globe_header.gif in current GlobalSight application, and replace it with GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>\server\GlobalSight\jboss\server\standalone\deployments\globalsight.ear\globalsight-web.war\images\globe_header.gif
Note: The original website header image is not in GIF format, which will not show on Microsoft Internet Explorer after upgrading to GlobalSight version 8.6.7.

To upgrade GlobalSight using the Upgrade Installer

  1. Double-click run.bat to launch the installer

The Upgrade Installer backs up the previous version of GlobalSight application and applies the upgrade. The GlobalSight application backup is stored in the \path\to\GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>\installer\backup folder

The upgrade log file log.txt can be found in \path\to\GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>\installer folder.

Post-upgrade procedures

Restart GlobalSight service.

Ubuntu

Pre-upgrade procedures

  • Log in as a user with sudo privilege
  • Stop Globalsight
    Type: sudo service globalsight stop
  • Make sure that the MySQL database is running
    Type: sudo service mysql status
    To check remote MysQL database server's status
    Type: mysqladmin status -u <globalsight_user_name> -p -h <mysql_hostname_or_ip_ address> -P <mysql_port>
    Example: mysqladmin status -u globalsight -p -h 192.168.1.29 -P 3306
  • Download and unjar the GlobalSight upgrade installer package
    Type: mkdir GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version> && cd GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>
    Example: mkdir GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_8.6.7 && cd GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_8.6.7
    Type: jar xvf /path/to/GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>.zip
    Example: jar xvf /home/jboss/GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_8.6.7.zip
  • Edit config.properties file to set GlobalSight application directory and certificate information to sign code for some Java applet components
    gsHome: the absolute path to GlobalSight application directory
    JKS: the absolute path to the certificate keystore file, uncomment it if needed
    keyPass: the passphrase/password of the certificate keystore file, uncomment it if needed
    keyAlias: the alias of the certificate keystore file, uncomment it if needed
  • Update GlobalSight daemon template /path/to/GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>/server/GlobalSight/jboss/util/bin/service.sh.template file
    Insert -c ${JBOSS_USER} -d ${JBOSS_HOME} between --background and --user
    Example: start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background -c ${JBOSS_USER} -d ${JBOSS_HOME} --user ${JBOSS_USER} --exec ${JBOSS_HOME}/bin/standalone.sh
    Example: start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background -c ${JBOSS_USER} -d ${JBOSS_HOME} --user ${JBOSS_USER} --exec ${JBOSS_HOME}/bin/jboss-cli.sh -- --connect command=:shutdown
    Note: this modification ensures that GlobalSight daemon is always running as user jboss.

Extra procedures for upgrading GlobalSight 8.6 to 8.6.7

  • Install Oracle JDK 8 and update system variable JAVA_HOME
    Oracle JDK 8 (at least jdk1.8.0_45) is required for GlobalSight version 8.6.3 and above. The install procedure can be found at Installing JDK.
  • Replace website header image
    Type: sudo cp /path/to/GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_<version>/server/GlobalSight/jboss/server/standalone/deployments/globalsight.ear/globalsight-web.war/images/globe_header.gif <globalsight_home_directory>/server/GlobalSight/jboss/server/standalone/deployments/globalsight.ear/globalsight-web.war/images/
    Example: sudo cp GlobalSight_Upgrade_Installer_8.6.7/server/GlobalSight/jboss/server/standalone/deployments/globalsight.ear/globalsight-web.war/images/globe_header.gif /home/jboss/GlobalSight/jboss/server/standalone/deployments/globalsight.ear/globalsight-web.war/images/
