Software update

When you start the Intrexx Portal Manager, you will automatically be offered the option to update your software. By updating your software, your version of Intrexx will have access to current advances at all times. The update packets will be made available on the United Planet update server. The software update can be set up in such a way that it will automatically check for appropriate updates to your system, when the Portal Manager is started.

The following three methods of update occur as follows:
An update of the portal server must always be run before the Portal Manager can be updated. If you perform a software update, you may be informed that you need to restart the services. Please note: When the services are restarted, processes, such as timer actions or data transfers, can be interrupted. Therefore, it may make sense to perform the update when a transaction of this type won't run throughout the duration of the update. After the services have been restarted, users need to log in to the portal again. If other actions are required, such as republishing applications, then you will be informed of this during the update process.

Please start the Portal Manager installed on the server system in order to update the portal server.

The software update can be started at any time via the main menu item Extras / Software update.

If no connection to the internet exists, please create one. Click Installation Source to show the settings to the internet. By clicking update, the settings for software updates will be opened.

Installing the update

The update will, if it is run on the system on which the portal server is installed, be accomplished for the Portal Manager and the portal server at the same time.

If the software update is run from a Portal Manager on a client, the currently connected portal server will not be updated. The update packages will only be transferred to the portal server system. In this case, a message will appear, notifying you that an update of the portal server on the server system must be accomplished.

This principle ensures that the update for each portal server must be accomplished before updating a Portal Manager on a client system. In order to update the portal server, start the Portal Manager installed on the server system.

If you do not wish to install the updates immediately, simply click OK. The next time you start a software update from the Extras menu, you will be again offered the ability to install them, without requiring you to download the update packages a second time.

After completing the download, the installation can be started in the following window. A connection to the internet will no longer be necessary and can be closed.

Please note: For installations on a Linux headless server: The installer must be executed with the system property


To do this, this option must be added to the file /opt/intrexx/bin/linux/ in the following way:

# now start the java vm

jre/linux/bin/java -cp $lc_classpath -Djava.awt.headless=true
