Hello, I am not an expert with linux but I am building a redhat box to install jive onto. I installed the rpm and it was working fine. I then wanted to install the daily update. I ran across these install instructions here…
" You can run rpm -U to upgrade the package, but make sure to follow these steps:
Stop the service
Back up /opt/jive_messenger/conf and /opt/jive_messenger/resources
Run the rpm command
Replace your jive-messenger.xml file and keystore
If you’‘re using the embedded database, you might need to restore that also, but if using MySQL you’'re fine
chown -R jive:jive /opt/jive_messenger
7 Start the service while tailing stderror.log and stdoutt.log"
But the daily update isn’'t an rpm package. if you use the U switch you need a package to install. Am I missing something? If I just copy and paste all the directories from the daily update and then copy back the .xml file, will that cause more harm than good?
