How to upgrade

To upgrade the application, go to the Control Panel > Applications > GlassFish Server v3 > Updates Available -> Update application

As part of the upgrade process, a backup is made of your existing GlassFish domains. If for some reason you need to access this backup, it will be located at /opt/glassfishv3/glassfish/domains_backup060120110948/, where 060120110948 is the Month, Day, Year, and Time.

Note Once the upgrade completes, you will need to restart the GlassFish server. This can be done from the Control Panel, or from the command line of the Virtual Machine.

Control Panel

To restart GlassFish from the Control Panel, go to System > Service Management > glassfish -> click on Restart Now. This will restart the GlassFish service. The progress of the restart will be shown on the screen.

Command Line

To restart GlassFish from the command line, log in to the Virtual Machine using SSH, and then as the root user run the service glassfish restart command.

[root@example ~]# service glassfish restart
Stopping GlassFish Application Server
