Updating Systems That Cannot Connect Outside

If your FileCloud server cannot connect to our update server to download the packages directly, you can download to a local folder and update your installation using the local path.

  1. Open the WWWROOT\config\cloudconfig.php file and edit the following entry, for example, if the zip folder is located in c:\users\administrator\Downloads folder, then simply modify it as follows:

  2. Right-click the following:
    and save it into the local folder where the zip contents are extracted.

Updating Linux Systems 

In Linux, live admin UI upgrade is not possible due to OS security restrictions. However, the update zip can be downloaded and then upgraded.
Before the upgrade, make sure to disable SELinux. Download the upgrade zip file and assign rwx permissions to the file and its parent folder. For example, if your zip path is /opt/fcupgrade/, then do the following:

Linux Permissions
cd /opt
chmod 777 fcupgrade
chmod 777

Then open the WWWROOT\config\cloudconfig.php file and update the value of the following entry with your zip file location.
