upgrade 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1 (i386) to latest or where get amd64 image



  • Need step-by-step guide to safetly upgrade current installation of pfSense box

    my first plan was :

    1. backup configs
    2. download amd64 release and do new install
    3. import config from step 1

    But I not found installation images for that :(
    Where i can get installation image for amd64 version of 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1 ?
    OR
    is there some another solution?

    amd64

    Why would you want install a 32 bit version if you could have the latest 64 bits version ?
    Does your setup depends on ancient code and bugs ???

    Install Google, feed it with "pfsense 2.3 5 download 32 bit" ** and you fill find sites like http://linorg.usp.br/pfsense/downloads/

    ** because this describes your question well in 'google' language ^^

    Read the release blog of 2.3.5 and all the ones up until "2.4.4" series.
    Take note of the issues that might be important for you.

    Or : export your config - and use the file as a physical paper "note" to read. All the settings are there.
    Install a clean 2.4.4, upgrade to p3 and set up your LAN, DHCP, and other stuff (the less, the better).
    Add the packages one by one.
    Install one, set it up, test, more test - and more test. And so on.
    Remember : it's just a firewall, not some full blown server ^^

    Btw : you will loose your 'rdd' stas, stats, for sure.

    He's not asking for a 32bit version. But I'm not sure why you are asking for a 64bit version of 2.3.4p1.

    You should just go straight to 2.4.4p3. You can restore you config from 2.3.4p1 into that.

    If you're able to swap out the boot media so you can roll back to the existing install I would do that.

    I planned do upgrade from web interface after config is imported

    config files is compatible? oh! good news for me!

    elementary solution! I forgot this way ;) thanks!!!

    so i have 2-nd plan:

    1. do new install on another HDD
    2. import config to new install

    PS.
    My english not good. Sorry for that.

    Yup, that should be good. The config should always be importable into a newer pfSense version. Though I would not recommend using a config from 1.2.3 maybe. 😉
