Upgrading the Hyperledger Besu Client on Linux
DISCLAIMER: In October 2020 PegaSys was renamed to Quorum.
If you’ve read the previous article on how to add the Besu Binary to your PATH, then updating the client is very easy.
- Download the new version of the Besu binary you want to install from a trusted website (ie. the PegaSys website).
2. Remove contents in
rm -rdf ~/bin/besu/* mv besu-1.4.0-beta3 ~/bin/besu
Note: Make sure to read the notes on step 4. Renaming the
besu-1.4.0-beta3 folder to
besu in order to make updates even easier. If it was renamed, there is no need to modify the PATH variable.
3. Extract and replace the contents inside the
home/user/bin/besu folder with the new version.
Code language: HTML, XML (xml)
cd ~/Downloads tar xf <binary-filename>.tar.gz ~/bin/besu
Restart your terminal and that’s it. You should now be able to run the new version of Besu in the terminal.
