How do I upgrade my Artifactory Bitnami installation?

The Bitnami installer installs Artifactory as a standalone installation with some minor changes to the file structure.

The upgrade procedure to a Pro version is similar to this upgrade process, the only difference is that the artifactory.war file is not located under$ARTIFACTORY_HOME/webapps but in $BITNAMI_INSTALLATION_DIR/apache-tomcat/webapps.


If you are upgrading Artifactory from version 3.x and above to a later version (or the same version, but Pro PowerPack), you have to:


  1. Shutdown Artifactory

  2. Unzip the Pro Artifactory zip file

  3. Replace the artifactory.war in $BITNAMI_INSTALLATION_DIR/apache-tomcat/webapps/artifactory.war with the one from the Pro version

  4. Delete the exploded artifactory folder from the same location

  5. Delete the $BITNAMI_INSTALLATION_DIR/apache-tomcat/work directory

  6. Replace the $BITNAMI_INSTALLATION_DIR/apps/artifactory/artifactory_home/bin with the $ARTIFACTORY_HOME/bin folder from the Pro version

  7. Start Artifactory

It is recommended to run a full system export before upgrading just to be on the safe side.

If you are running an earlier version of Artifactory, and want to upgrade to the latest Pro version, you would have to run a full system export, install the new Pro version and run a full system import.
