This document covers upgrading the 64bit version Shibboleth SP on CentOS.


It is always a good idea to backup the contents of /etc/shibboleth before you begin. And you must backup /etc/httpd/conf.d/shibd.conf as it gets blown away.

To upgrade, do the following:

sudo yum -y --enablerepo=security_shibboleth update shibboleth.x86_64

Put back /etc/httpd/conf.d/shibd.conf and make any necessary changes to files in /etc/shibboleth if the install process reported any errors.

Restart Apache and shibd

Restart Apache and shibd to make sure Apache has the updated config in /etc/httpd/conf.d/shibd.conf.

sudo /sbin/service shibd restart
sudo /sbin/service httpd restart
