Unhappy Newbie URGENT Help Please! !!!How to UPDATE!!! Rpm? Execute? Dunno!!


Hi, we are using ensim pro for over 2 years but we have never needed to update our server becouse our server provider were already doing it.
But now we have carried all of our web sites ro the new Dedicated Provider whom just install Ensim pro. for Linux (Fedora) 3.7.0-17 , no language packs , and a lot of bugs UNMANAGED...

We have to install German and Spanish Languages with Security Fix - Ensim Pro for Linux (Fedora) 3.7.0-22 (LS) ,

We have made all downloads and read the article for this job but we could not understand ho to


"""""""""""""""""""Updated RPMs

ensim-appliance-l-3.7.0-18.i386.rpm
webppliance-apache-3.7.0-20.i386.rpm
webppliance-bind-3.7.0-18.i386.rpm
webppliance-ipinfo-3.7.0-18.i386.rpm
webppliance-subdomain-3.7.0-18.i386.rpm
webppliance-aliases-3.7.0-18.i386.rpm
webppliance-virtualhosting-3.7.0-21.i386.rpm
webppliance-sendmail-3.7.0-21.i386.rpm
webppliance-siteinfo-3.7.0-21.i386.rpm
webppliance-prolog-3.7.0-21.i386.rpm
webppliance-epilog-3.7.0-21.i386.rpm
webppliance-version-3.7.0-22.i386.rpm
ensim-gallery-1.3.4-1.0-45.i386.rpm
ensim-invboard-1.1.2-1.0-45.i386.rpm
ensim-phpbb-2.0.6-1.0-45.i386.rpm
webppliance-scriptsmgr-3.7.0-18.i386.rpm
webppliance-docs-3.7.0-22.i386.rpm

Installation Instructions:

Ensure LWP 3.7.0-17 is installed
Download LS-3.7.0-22.tar.gz and untar
Run rpm -Fvh *.rpm
Restart WEBppliance service"""""""""""""""""""

Could someone tell here how to keep "Installation Instructions:" steps.

Where would untar? Server? "Download LS-3.7.0-22.tar.gz and untar "
How to run "Run rpm -Fvh *.rpm " by which program? Are we have to use SHH program to do it ? we do not know anything about this and which commands we have to enter at which directory of the server...

Thanks for your possible newbie lessons here

hmm..this is quite easily done.. but I'm in a hurry now. I'll get back to this later, when my training for today is over...heh

Yes, to server.

Don't know the software, but I recommend you to untar it to a safe (ampty) directory and then search for README or simialr file. COmmand to untar
tar zxvf LS-3.7.0-22.tar.gz

The command 'rpm -Fvh *.rpm' should be run on the server in the directory with downloaded RPM files.
To get to server shell you can use SSH or direct access (login to console) if you have phisical access to the server.

Most basic commands:
cd - changes directories. Example:
cd /root
(enters /root directory)
ls - shows content of the directory. If you use it with -l option (ls -l), you get more info (file sizes and so on)
mc - Midnight Commander, if you have it installed, things connected with moving betwen directories, listing them and so on should be much easier. It's very similar to Norton Commander (if you have experience from old DOS days you probably know the program well).

to see the current directory you are on the server (when you're connected via ssh), type this: (the $ 'dollar' sign presents the command prompt so do not write that):

$ pwd

that shows the Parent Working Directory, the place you are in. now I'm not sure where your files are, but if the updatedb command has been run (usually run by cron daily at least, so I guess it's ok) you can find the files with locate command:

$ locate ensim*.rpm

this should find the rpm-package that begins with the letters ensim (the file you said you downloaded). now you'll see the directory where it is located, and after this (I assume you downloaded all the files to the same directory)

$ cd /the/path/you/got/from/locate

where /the/path/you/got/from/locate is the path that you saw when you did the locate command. now you should be in the dir you have your files...then:

$ ls

and you should see a list of packages that are there (right?) now we should also have the LS-3.7.0-22.tar.gz file here if you downloaded it also to the same place that you did rpms too. let's get it open:

$ tar -zxvf LS-3.7.0-22.tar.gz

and you should see what's in it.... I don't know what is in it, so I can't help with that yet. if you post here what's inside the tar.gz -package (you'll see a list after you do the command above) so I might be able to help a bit...but anyway, after doing the command above, you get a README and/or INSTALL files I think. read them through, they'll advice you.

the next thing is to deal with the rpms we have in this dir (if you did download them here):

$ rpm -Fvh *.rpm

and they should get installed. after this you'll need to restart the WEBppliance service as you wrote. I don't have this so I don't know how you actually do it, but you might get some clue if you read the README file you possibly got when you extracted the .tar.gz file? you can try running

$ webppliance --help

but I don't have a clue if this works out...I guess it just prints "command not found" or something similar.

I don't have fedora ensim server myself, or fedora either, so I might not be the best helper out there... my help is based on the things that are common to different linux/unix-based os' flavours. hopefully you'll get it done... but try those out and post here what you'll get

and oh, you said your "server is empty?" - what you did means that the directory you are in, is empty. also, doing the rpm-update or restarting the service might need root access, so if you get complaints like "you must be root" or something, do

$ su
<password>

where <password> is of course your root password on the machine you log into hopefully this helped a bit at least
