Upgrade or Downgrade from web GUI

Go to settings -> sensors and do the upgrade from there. Only running sniffers can be downgraded or upgraded via GUI. If you need to do downgrade, click on (+) for details, and then click on Blue UPGRADE button, dropbox will appear with versions available for downgrade/upgrade.


Manual upgrade or downgrade

Stop running sniffer service

/etc/init.d/voipmonitor stop
# In case that service won't stop, press CTRL+C and use KILL signal to terminate the process with a force:
kill -9 `pgrep voipmonitor`
# In case that multiple instances of voipmonitor are running there, use last command multiple-times.
