Pfsense upgrade with CD



  • Gentlemen:

    If a current version of pfsense is installed and a FULL CD image is used for the upgrade does one press the I key during the install to write over the existing running image?
    My router platform has a cd drive so I would like to place upgrade images in the cd player to accomplish the upgrade. I noticed that an R or I appeared while the cd was running. Any thoughts will be appreciated.



  • why make it complicated when you can upgrade from the webgui ?



  • Thanks for the suggestion.

    Yes, do you have some good reason to upgrade from a CD rather than downloading the upgrade image directly?

    I have never tried to do this but if you really need to upgrade from CD then I would mount the CD manually and then run the manual upgrade from the console menu.
