Update Manually on CentOS/Red Hat

This page describes how to update manually to the latest release of rippled on CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Ripple recommends setting up automatic updates instead, where possible.

These instructions assume you have already installed rippled from the yum repository.

Tip: To perform these steps all at once, you can run the /opt/ripple/bin/ script, which is included with the rippled package. This script should be run as a sudo user.

To update manually, complete the following steps:

  1. If you are upgrading to rippled 1.7.0 from an earlier version, re-add the repository to get Ripple's updated GPG key. Otherwise, skip this step:

    $ cat << REPOFILE | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/ripple.repo
    name=XRP Ledger Packages
  2. Download and install the latest rippled package:

    $ sudo yum update rippled

    This update procedure leaves your existing config files in place.

  3. Reload the systemd unit files:

    $ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
  4. Restart the rippled service:

    $ sudo service rippled restart
