Hi Kerio Connect experts,

Hope my problem was not already answered, but after some search on the forum, no similar problems, so I think to ask for your help.

I'm currently using Kerio Connect v7.4.3 (into a Linux VM onto CentOs) and I try to install the new v8.0.0, but the method I use since months/year seems to not working anymore.

In a shell (throw Putty via SSH), I connect in root and normally launch /var/install/install_connect.sh after having removed previously old RPM packages.
This time, the RPM is correctly downloaded, but after, I get an error message "Missing Kerio Connect installation package in /var/install directory - installation failed"
Does this method is already working ?
Do I have to modify something into install_connect.sh or some dependancy ?

Thanks for your help.

The script is not from Kerio so we can't help there.
However, upgrade process is very easy. Just download .rpm package from Kerio website and run 'rpm -Uvh kerio-connect-8.0.0.****.rpm' as described in the manual.

Strange ???
Are you sure this script wasn't included officialy in a CentOS VMWare appliance till last year, before you stop delivering a CentOS release ?

If not, I don't know where this script can came from, maybe our french reseller ?
I've analysed this script : it download the last rpm package from kerio.com, display a end user licence (which seem to be official), then run the rpm command line to install/upgrade the release, and then propose to configure Kerio by launching the cfgwizard.
So, it's why I always tought it was official.

So I've done the upgrade throw this command and it's OK now.
Thanks for all Wink

You're right. The script was a part of initial setup during first start of the appliance. It was not intended to be run by user. In fact, it was supposed to be removed when the appliance starts.

OK, thanks for this confirmation Wink

But now my question is :
- Can I continue to use this script for upgrading like I've done during 1 year (I've modified 3 lines which refer to "kerio-connect-7", and changed them to "kerio-connect-8") ?
- Or must I stop using this script and use instead my own script including only something like :
wget download.kerio.com /dwn/kerio-connect-linux.rpm (Edit : link truncated to bypass security which block url when less than 5 messages)
/etc/init.d kerio-connect stop
rpm -Uvh kerio-connec-xxx.rpm
/etc/init.d kerio-connect start
