Upgrading from 1.0 Final to 1.2.x?



  • Hi all

    i still have 1.0 Final running on my Nokia330. So i just decided to make an upgrude to the current stable release.
    The UpgradeGuide (http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/UpgradeGuide) says:

    "The supported means of upgrading from one pfSense release to another depend on the platform being used. Any non-embedded version of pfSense can be reliably upgraded to any other version while retaining the existing configuration. "

    And:

    "Alternatively, the console upgrade mechanism is preferred by many users. Enable SSH on the Advanced page, SSH into your pfSense install, and choose the console upgrade menu option. It's easiest to paste the URL of the update file location there. The system then automatically downloads and installs the specified update, including verification of the md5. "

    Well now, when logging into console, there is no menu item to upgrade. Obv. that would be item 13 and well… i only got 11 items. Am i missing something or how to do the upgrade from 1.0 Final?

    Regards
    Frank



  • I'm pretty sure the console option only appeared with 1.2.  Indeed, upgrades may only be possible starting from 1.2.



  • @Cry:

    So that means, that i have to do a fresh installation?
    At least, are the configuration files compatible?



  • Yes, usually they are.



  • There is no console upgrade in 1.0, you can upgrade in the GUI using the Firmware page as described in the upgrade guide to go from 1.0 to 1.2 or 1.2.1.
