We assume that you have a server running Linux CDP Standard Edition 3.18.1 or an earlier version and that you used the automatic method to install the server so that the CDP packages repository is already added to the configuration. You can read about how to configure the CDP packages repository in this document (see Installing Standard Edition on CentOS, RHE, and Fedora and Installing Standard Edition on Debian and Ubuntu.
R1Soft products follow this format for version numbers: MAJOR.MINOR.MAINTENANCE. Pre-release downloads ALWAYS have a version number that has an ODD MINOR number, e.g., 3..5. Stable downloads ALWAYS have a version number with an EVEN MINOR number, e.g., 3..1.
To upgrade the CDP Server, you do not need to uninstall the previous version. It is safe to upgrade the Linux CDP Server on an active, running server. After the upgrade is complete, a reboot is not required. All your licenses, settings, added Hosts, etc. will remain unchanged.
When you upgrade, Task History for completed tasks will be purged. This change fixes several memory issues with the server.
