How to fix upgrade notification problems

When a new release is published, it will be announced on the LiteSpeed Forums, Twitter, and Google Group. It will also be listed on the downloads page. We normally wait a week or two to push it to autoupdate. Then your web server will show information about the available upgrade and send you an upgrade notification. After this, you can do the upgrade right from the Admin Console.

Sometimes a new release is available but it doesn't show up on your server admin console. One possible reason for this would be the new release has not been pushed into auto-update yet. LiteSpeed Web Server checks this once per day. Another possible reason could be some corrupted files in the autoupdate folder. You can remove the .last file and restart the server to force it to check again.

rm /usr/local/lsws/autoupdate/.last 
/usr/local/lsws/bin/lswsctrl restart

Or, you can just upgrade directly from the command line

/usr/local/lsws/admin/misc/ -f -v <version>

If problems still exist, you can try removing all the files in the autoupdate folder and restarting LiteSpeed Web Server. The files in the autoupdate folder will be regenerated when your server checks for updates.

rm -rf /usr/local/lsws/autoupdate/*
