Minor Release - AWIPS EDEX 18.2.1-4 on Linux

A new minor release (version 18.2.1-4) of AWIPS EDEX has been made for Linux servers. No changes have been made to CAVE since the 18.2.1-3 release, however the version for Linux has been updated to 18.2.1-4. This release:

  • Fixes an issue with installing EDEX on a brand new server and having EDEX Ingest fail to start
  • Updated awips_install.sh script:
    • Added checks to check for wget and rsync and install if they aren't installed
    • Updated the "backup" section - gives users the option to not backup data
    • Only backs up the ldm/etc and ldm/dev directories instead of the full LDM directory

How to Install AWIPS 18.2.1-4

NOTE: If you have a machine where you are wanting both CAVE and EDEX installed, install EDEX first, then CAVE

WARNING: Do not use yum update, use the awips_install.sh and this will remove old builds of CAVE/EDEX before installing new versions
