These instructions cover how to update existing Solaris 8/9/10 (SPARC) installations to new versions of EZproxy. These instructions are valid to update from any version of EZproxy to this release. This process will preserve all existing configuration files.
Note: EZproxy V5.5 is the last release that supports Solaris SPARC V8. Release V5.6.1 of EZproxy is the last release to support Solaris SPARC hardware and Operating System platforms. Support for Solaris on Intel platforms continues unchanged. Release V6.0 of EZproxy will not include a SPARC build.
If you are updating from a version of EZproxy 5.0 or earlier, please be aware that the ezproxy.cfg, ezproxy.msg, and ezproxy.usr files have been renamed to config.txt, messages.txt, and user.txt in EZproxy 5.1 or later. When you perform the
mv ezproxy ezproxy. yyyymmdd
mv ezproxy-sol8-sparc.bin ezproxy
chmod 755 ezproxy
During this step, if you are updating from EZproxy 5.0 or earlier, you will be asked to allow ezproxy.cfg to be renamed to config.txt and to allow ezproxy.usr to be renamed to user.txt. See EZproxy 5.1 New Filenames for more information.
Create any new files required for the updated release with the command:
This step is optional. If you are updating from a EZproxy 5.0 or earlier, you can choose to rename your existing ezproxy.msg to messages.txt, or you can leave the existing file alone and EZproxy will create a new messages.txt file.
If you would like to rename the existing file, issue the command:
mv ezproxy.msg messages.txt
