If you have any problems with this process, please
Request Support. Your feedback makes DBAmon a better product.
First, go to /tmp in Cygwin on the DBAmon MASTER and erase all .tgz files. Run rm *.tgz
Go to this URL: http://dbamon.com/data/
You will see the versions of DBAmon listed with the format DBAmon_(Version)_(Date). Click on the highest version that you see listed here. This will vary depending on which browser you're using, but you want to save the TGZ file as a TGZ file.
Now copy this TGZ file over to the CYGWIN /tmp directory on the DBAmon MASTER server. If you're doing that via Windows, then you'll have to copy the file to C:\cygwin\tmp
Within Cygwin, run these commands:
cd /opt/dbamon rm *.tar mv /tmp/dbamon*.tgz . gunzip *.tgz tar -xvf *.tar
You have now successfully replaced that DBAmon software with that of the new version. You configuration files under /opt/dbamon/adm are unchanged.
The last step that remains is to recopy the CGI scripts to YOUR APACHE2 CGI directory.
... and follow the prompts. You will have to answer srv or var for the top level of the cgi-bin directory and then you'll have to hit ENTER to confirm the directory that they will be copied to.
You're basically done. Now just run: dbamon_stop
... to restart DBAmon. Assuming that you have dbamon_checker correctly setup in cron, the next time it runs it will see that DBAmon is not running and it will restart it.
