If you installed Liferay DXP manually as a WAR file on a supported application server, you must apply patches to the WAR file and supporting files and re-deploy them. This article shows you how to do that.
Download the necessary artifacts from the Customer Portal:
- Liferay DXP WAR file (
- Dependencies ZIP file (
- OSGi JARs ZIP file (
- Latest Patching Tool
Create an arbitrary folder. Unzip the dependency artifacts and the Patching Tool into it. The folder contents should look like this:
liferay-dxp-dependencies-[version]/← Unzipped Dependencies
osgi/← Unzipped OSGi JARs
patching-tool/← Unzipped Patching Tool
liferay-dxp-[version].war/← Liferay DXP WAR File
Create the default profile configuration file in the Patching Tool folder:
patching-home/patching-tool/default.properties. The contents should look like this:
patching.mode=binary war.path=../../patching-home/liferay-dxp-[version].war global.lib.path=../../patching-home/liferay-dxp-dependencies-[version] liferay.home=../../patching-home
If you're using a different OSGi folder structure, you can specify it as the [Patching Tool Advanced Configuration](/docs/7-2/deploy/-/knowledge_base/d/patching-tool-advanced-configuration) documentation describes:
module.framework.core.path=/osgi-home/osgi/core module.framework.marketplace.path=/osgi-home/osgi/marketplace module.framework.modules.path=/osgi-home/osgi/modules module.framework.portal.path=/osgi-home/osgi/portal module.framework.static.path=/osgi-home/osgi/static
Download the patch (fix pack or hotfix) to install and put it in a folder called
patchesin your Patching Tool folder (i.e.
Execute the Patching Tool’s
