Notes

  • IMPORTANT: This version includes new SSL certificates. Client versions earlier than 5.4.4c will not be able to connect to this release. There are several options:
    • explicity disable SSL in the login manager. The default is 'optional', which means the client & server will try to use SSL. You may be using it unintentionally because of this default setting. In that case, it might be acceptable to simply disable it. This will allow older clients to connect until you can upgrade them.
Line: 18 to 18
 
  • The layout of the shared memory segment used by the license manager is different from all previous releases. If you are planning to run 5.5 and any previous release on the same server, make sure APPX_MONITOR_KEY has a different value from your other installations.

Installation of APPX 5.5.x is accomplished by simply following the steps outlined below for your target platform. Because all platforms use a common Installation Wizard, the installation steps for the various platforms are very similar.
  APPX runs on multiple platforms (various Windows versions & servers, Linux, HP-UX, AIX, etc). The steps for installing are very similar between all Linux/Unix platforms and all Windows versions, and rather than give instructions for each variation, we break them down into all Windows installations and all Linux/Unix installations. Where applicable, we note any O/S specific variations within the instructions for that type of O/S.
