Updating BitNinja

BitNinja will auto-update the newest version on the server.

How can you check which is the newest version number?

  • Check our Agent Changelog
  • On the BitNinja Dashboard next to the server’s name there will be a yellow exclamation mark, if your agent needs to be updated

In case of unusual events when the auto-update does not start there shall be a problem with the package manager.

How can you manually update if the newest version is not running on the server?

Please use the following commands.

Debian, Ubuntu:

apt-get update

apt-get install bitninja


yum check-update

yum update bitninja

For the following Linux versions the latest available is 2.39.1. No further updates will be availbale. BitNinja will still work on them with the above mentioned version.

  • RedHat 6
  • CentOS 6.x
  • CloudLinux 6.x
  • Debian 6-7
  • Ubuntu 14-15

How can I update the GPG key?

If the installation fails on Debian/Ubuntu because of the GPG key, you can use the following commands to update:

apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-key 7F8B47DC

apt-get update

If this doesn't work, you can use the following command:

wget -O- | apt-key add -
