Update Xitogent on Linux

We are always developing Xitogent to add new features and make it better, so you can get access to the new changes through updates, With Xitogent you have two main update solutions, Auto Update, and Manual Update.

Automatic Update

If you have enabled Xitogent's auto-update at the time of adding your server then, every time a newer version is available, Xitogent will automatically download the new version on your server and test if everything is working flawlessly with this new update. if the new version works perfectly then it will be replaced with the older version and the Xitogent service will be restarted to take effect, this process is happening in a matter of seconds.

How to enable Auto Update

If you used the automatic installation to register your server, you had the option to enable the Auto Update on the add server page. even on manual registration, you can use the --auto_update flag to register your server with Auto Update enabled.

Also, you can navigate to the Servers page from the side menu, then on the Server's overview page you see a gear icon on the top right of the page, from there you can always enable/disable auto-update and other preferences.

you can verify that you have the newer version installed with:

xitogent version

Manual Update

The manual update is used when you disabled auto-update for that server. so basically what you need to do is simply run the following command to update Xitogent using the package manager:

yum or dnf

yum install xitogent
dnf install xitogent


apt update
apt install xitogent
