Upgrading from LAMS 2.3.1 to 2.3.2

The process I followed to upgrade from LAMS 2.3.1 to 2.3.2 is explained below:

As the root user download lams-unix-patch-2.3.2.tar.gz into /root:

lynx http://wiki.lamsfoundation.org/display/lams/Downloads#Downloads-unix

Unpack the patch and copy the files over:

tar -xzvf lams-unix-patch-2.3.2.tar.gz
cd lams-unix-patch-2.3.2
"cp" -r * /usr/local/jboss-4.0.2/server/default/deploy/lams.ear/

(Note the cp command is in quotes to override the interactive alias mode and save having to say y to every file copied over!)

Now stop and restart LAMS and your upgrade is complete:

service lams2 stop
service lams2 start
service httpd restart
