Update from version 1.0.x or version 1.2.x¶
Due to the fact that version 2.0.x is a re-development of the extension from scratch, which requires at least TYPO3 version 7.6.x, and version 1.0.x and 1.2.x of the extension is incompatible with this TYPO3 version, it is very unlikely that someone updates from 1.0.x to 2.0.x or 1.2.x to 2.0.x. The process will include an update of TYPO3, too.
As a consequence, the easiest is to inactivate and delete the old version of the extension, update the TYPO3 core and install the new version 2.0.x. See steps in chapter Step-by-Step Installation. for further details.
Please note that you possibly need to adjust the arguments of the check script on the Nagios® server and remove
pid <pageid> (or
--pageid <pageid>) and replace it with
--resource /?eID=nagios. In newer versions of the
check_typo3.sh plugin for Nagios®, even the
--resource parameter is not required. A typical line in the Nagios® configuration file looks like:
check_command check_typo3!--hostname example.com
Update from version 2.0.x to version 2.1.x¶
In version 1.x.x of the extension, the extension list showed the keyword
version between the extension key and the version number. This keyword has been accidentally dropped in version 2.0.x. The Nagios plugin
check_typo3.sh supports both variants: extension list with and without the keyword
version. The output of the extension list has been fixed with version 2.1.0 and shows the keyword
If you update from version 2.0.x to version 2.1.x and use the Nagios plugin version 18.104.22.168 or higher, everything should be fine.
If you update from version 2.0.x to version 2.1.x and use your own scripts or methods to parse the output of
EXT:nagios, make sure they support the re-implemented keyword
version between the extension key and the version number.
