Upgrade Rundeck Pro as a WAR+Tomcat

Last Updated: Aug 17, 2017 07:23AM PDT

This document describe how to upgrade the Rundeck-Pro version on windows environment.

Download the rundeckpro-edition-X.X.X.war file from the download page.


The upgrade procedure should be:

1) backup the log4j.properties file.
Copy your log4j.properties and web.xml, if you have changed anything there: ($CATALINA_BASE/webapps/rundeckpro/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties)

2) Remove your rundeckpro and rundeckpro.war webapps directory.

3) Rename or remove the libext folder located in $RDECK_BASE, because the new version will load new plugin versions.

Also it is recommended to remove the content of the folder $RDECK_BASE/var/tmp/pluginJars/

*If you have your own plugins on the previous libext folder,  copy them back to the new libext folder.

4) If you have setting related with plugins in $RDECK_BASE/etc/rundeck-config.properties, comment them in the first deploy.

For example something like this: 


5) Copy the new war file to $CATALINA_BASE/webapps/

6) unzip the .war file if the autodeploy is not enabled.

7) Update your web.xml and log4j.properties from previous version:

In case that you changed the default settings.
Copy the saved log4j.properties back to $CATALINA_BASE/webapps/rundeckpro/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties

8) restart Tomcat

9) Uncomment the setting in $RDECK_BASE/etc/rundeck-config.properties (if you did the step 4) and restart tomcat again.
