Upgrade from 3.3.x to 3.3.y

If you have installed from the Deb or RPM package, then you can just upgrade this. However, it is recommended that you have done a backup before doing this. Also if this is on a production server, that you do this during an extended period of scheduled downtime and have previously tested the upgrade on a pre-production server.

Download the appropriate upgrade patch file from the list below and substitue for x and y as appropiate:

Become eprints user and go to eprints installation directory:

sudo su eprints
cd /opt/eprints3

Check if you are on version 3.3.x:


Apply the patch only if you are on 3.3.x

patch -p1 < ./upgrade-3.3.x-3.3.y.patch

You can safely ignore any missing Debian related files during patch by press "Enter". This is due to the patch generated by git.

Restart Apache to take effect.
