Update Automatically on Linux
On Linux, you can set up
rippled to automatically upgrade to the latest version with a one-time
cron configuration. Ripple recommends enabling automatic updates if possible.
To set up automatic updates, complete the following steps:
Create a symlink in your
cron.dfolder to the
$ sudo ln -s /opt/ripple/etc/update-rippled-cron /etc/cron.d/
This cron configuration runs a script to update the installed
rippledpackage within an hour of each new release. To reduce the chance of outages from all servers updating simultaneously, the script delays the update for a random number of minutes, up to 59.
Caution: In the future, it is possible that changes to Ripple's repositories may require manual intervention to update the URLs where your script searches for updates. Stay tuned to the XRP Ledger Blog or the ripple-server mailing list for announcements on any required changes.
