How to upgrade Openfire 4.51 to 4.54 in Ubuntu server 20.04

I just wonder how you decided to post this question in a random 13 years old post instead of pressing the “New Topic” button at the top of this page? And it is not like you are upgrading from Wildfire version. 4.5.1 is rather recent release. Mind boggling…

Moved you question to a separate topic.

Make backup of your Openfire database first.
Uninstall old version
sudo dpkg -P openfire
Then run the new installer
sudo dpkg -i openfire_4.5.4_all.deb

Maybe even just running the new installer will work. I’m not a primary Linux user.

We have a handy Upgrade Guide that explains the steps that are needed. Basically: create a backup, run the installer.

This guide doesn’t have details on deb version, but it should be standard like for any deb install. And backup step still applies.
