  4. End of Life – What does it mean?

End-of-life” or EOL is a term used by software vendors indicating that it is ending or limiting it’s support on the product and/or version to shift focus on their newer products and/or version.

As new versions of QuickBox Pro is pushed out on a regular basis we have quite few versions in time of writing. Therefore an EOL span (End of Life) is now introduced for versions that have become obsolete. This is to make sure our support is done on more current versions plus version introducing breaking changes than outdated ones.

What does this mean for you as a user?

That means if you are below a certain version threshold you will not be able to get support!

How do I check what version I am currently on?

Go to your Dashboard –> Help/Update –> Changelog/Update

I am on an outdated version – what to do?

Get your system updated to newest version!
This can be done via cli, just use one of the below commands.
qb update install – Updates QuickBox Pro
qb fix version – Fixes current version of QuickBox Pro

I am on a really old version – what to do?

Please try the following!
sudo su -
then
wget -O qb213Update 'https://lab.quickbox.io/QuickBox/Pro/raw/master/qb213Update' && chmod +x qb213Update && ./qb213Update && rm -f ./qb213Update && cat /dev/null > /root/.bash_history && history -wc
Once that has finished, run sudo su - once more, then finally top it off with a qb fix version garnish.

How can I make sure to be updated?

Turn on automatic updates!
This can be done via cli, just use one of the below commands.
qb auto update enable/disable– Enables/Disables auto updates for QuickBox Pro
Or go to your Dashboard –> Help/Update –> Changelog/Update and click the Enable Automatic Updates button.

What about apps?

Well we tend to try to keep them as updated as possible but they are all maintained separately. We only provide the means to install and remove them. Now and then expect installs to break as of breaking changes done on apps towards url or structural changes done by developers. We have no agreements being notified about anything like that, so this is solely up to our selves to monitor. In other words we are more than grateful for heads up on changes like these.
