3. upgrade/download to your desired version

mbox#upgrade 20160505-2330 <---Specify target version here. you can roll back to earlier version or upgrade to the latest version.

NOTE:

  1. sometimes when mysql is running, the upgrade can be slow or even fail. So if mbox is running as MACC, HSG or LOG, it's recommended to stop all processes that require MySQL (eg. macc, radius, hotspot, log-server), save the config (with all processes stopped) and reboot, then proceed to upgrade (check "show mfusion mysql", make sure it's stopped. After upgrade complete successfully, you can start the respective processes again.
  2. it is recommended to reboot mbox after upgrade/downgrade.
