Installing CloudBees Flow on Traditional Platforms

This section describes the methods for installing CloudBees Flow in a new environment for on-premise installations. To upgrade CloudBees Flow Automation Platform or CloudBees Flow, see Roadmap to upgrade cloudBees flow .

The following situation might occur when the workspace files are in a directory other than the default workspace directory and the CloudBees Flow configuration links to it. When you install a new version, CloudBees Flow creates a workspace directory in the default location. It does not recognize the preconfigured workspace link in the previous configuration. When configuring CloudBees Flow after an upgrade, you cannot use ecconfigure to move the workspace directory to the preconfigured network location. You must manually specify the link to the workspace directory in the new configuration.

Not all combinations of server version and agent version are supported. This is because of an incompatibility involving ectool/Perl API communication with the CloudBees Flow server and a Diffie-Hellman key size incompatibility. For details, see Server and agent compatibility .

Although the CloudBees Flow installer is in $INSTALL_DIRECTORY/src, do not launch it from there.
