How can I make a clean install without losing the existing setup ?

 In some situations, it may be necessary to make a clean install to make an upgrade work. You can do it by following steps below:

  • Backup your host keys in etc directory (etc/ssh_host*)
  • Uninstall the existing version of Copssh
  • Remove remnants of the installation directory except home directories if they exist
  • Make sure that the service account and the sshd account are removed
  • Install new Copssh
  • Restore host keys back to etc directory
  • Start Copssh Control Panel and verify that the service is running
  • Activate your users again and specify their existing home directories as the home directory during the activation
