How to upgrade GeoNetwork

Minor upgrade

A minor upgrade is when there have been no database changes since your current version.

Follow these steps:

  • back up your current installation
  • run installer and install new GN
  • in config.xml, jetty.xml, etc, apply the changes you've made in your current installation. That might as well include the JDBC settings for your DB, no need to use GAST for anything.
  • make sure you copy uploaded images (previews and logos, data files for download) from your current installation:
cp -rp * /somepath/web/geonetwork/WEB-INF/data
  • apply any other customizations you've made, like for example the logo in the header and whatever else you've changed.

Major upgrade

Follow the documentation of the new major release.
