Upgrading the WAPT Server


If your WAPT Server is a virtual machine, take a snapshot of the VM. This way, you’ll be able to go back easily in the rare case that the update fails.

Upgrading from 1.6 to 1.7

The upgrade process follows the process for a minor update:


  • Debian Jessie is now deprecated. WAPT 1.7 will not work with that old Debian version;
  • consider migrating your existing WAPT installation to Debian Stretch or CentOS7;

Upgrading from 1.5 to 1.6

The upgrade process follows the process for a minor update.


  • if you are in Debian Jessie, it is recommended to upgrade to Debian Strech 64 bits;

Upgrading from 1.3 to 1.6

The upgrade from 1.3 to 1.6 is a major upgrade.
