  50. Run sudo chown -R gradmin:gradmin /home/gradmin
  51. Run sudo timedatectl set-timezone UTC
  52. Run sudo sh /home/gradmin/
  53. Run cd /home/gradmin/grs-docker-compose.
  54. Run sudo docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.override.yml up -d
  55. Verify that a GreenRADIUS instance is accessible via the web. You should be able to visit https://<ip address of instance>/admin in your browser and via the login page for the web administration console.
  56. Run sudo docker-compose down
  57. Copy the latest update package for GreenRADIUS into the /tmp/ directory
  58. Run sudo unzip /tmp/ -d /tmp/ (where "xxxx" is the version number of the GreenRADIUS update package)
  59. Run sudo tar -xvzf /tmp/GreenRADIUS_xxxx_Update/images.tgz -C /tmp/
  60. Run sudo tar -xvzf /tmp/GreenRADIUS_xxxx_Update/others.tgz -C /tmp/

  66. Run sudo docker load -i /tmp/images/greenradius_xxxx_freeradius_image
  67. Run sudo docker load -i /tmp/images/greenradius_xxxx_grs_auth_app_image
  68. Edit /home/gradmin/grs-docker-compose/docker-compose.yml and replace every occurrence of "4466" with the version for your latest version of GreenRADIUS (e.g. "4499" for v4.4.9.9)
  69. Run cd /home/gradmin/grs-docker-compose
  70. Run sudo docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.override.yml up -d
  71. Confirm that the latest GreenRADIUS version is accessible via your browser at the same URL as before.

On future startups, you will need to run sudo docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.override.yml up -d from the grs-docker-compose directory, as shown above, to launch the containers.

To apply subsequent updates

  1. Copy the update package to the /tmp directory.
  2. Log in as gradmin.
  3. Run sudo yum update
  4. Run sudo unzip /tmp/ -d /tmp/. Note that in this command and below, xxxx should be replaced with the current version number.
  5. Run sudo tar -xvzf /tmp/GreenRADIUS_xxxx_Update/images.tgz -C /tmp/
  6. Run sudo tar -xvzf /tmp/GreenRADIUS_xxxx_Update/others.tgz -C /tmp/

  8. Run sudo docker load -i /tmp/images/greenradius_xxxx_main_image
  9. Run sudo docker load -i /tmp/images/greenradius_xxxx_openldap_image
  10. Run sudo docker load -i /tmp/images/greenradius_xxxx_postgres_image
  11. Run sudo docker load -i /tmp/images/greenradius_xxxx_rsyslog_image
  12. Run sudo docker load -i /tmp/images/greenradius_xxxx_freeradius_image
