3 Easy Steps to Upgrade Chat System
Note: Please backup all the files before the upgrade so as to avoid losing any important data.
1) Upgrade the server program
It is very simple to upgrade the server program, which can be done just by copying and covering.
- Red5 Edition
First stop Red5 service by this command: /sbin/service red5 stop
Under the installation folder of Red5, enter the directory webapps/soChat/WEB-INF/lib. Then replace the file soChat.jar with the latest version.
At last, restart Red5 service to finish: /sbin/service red5 start
- FMS Edition
Go to the path under FMS installation directory applications/soChat/.
Cover the old files by soChat.far file of the new version copy.
2) Upgrade the client program
It can be done by replacing the old files by the new client program file.
Since most browsers are using cache, the swf file of Chat client program would be cached. In order to let visitor download the latest file "chat.swf" automatically, renaming the file is recommended. For example, change its name into "chat1.61.swf". And after you change the file name, please open web page and modify the file name in the path too.
3) Check configuration
The versions before 1.61 may loose configuration information due to the change of configuration format. Please login chat as admin, and then go to the administrator panel, check the configuration information and reset it.
