Upgrade Snort to 3.2.6



  • I want to upgrade 3.2.6 and have not yet done an upgrade.  Do I choose Reinstall Snort Package from Package Manager?  Is there a command I run?  This seems like it should be easier than it is.  Also, can I backup Snort before the upgrade or can I only backup the entire firewall.  Thanks in advance.

    Just reinstall.



  • Thanks.  That's easy enough.  Will all the conf files remain intact?

    Yes, Snort and Suricata upgrades use the existing configuration stored in the config.xml file on the firewall.  The actual snort.conf (or suricata.yaml) conf file for the binary is regenerated each time the binary is started.
