ps -ef | grep "filecatalyst"
- Backup Configuration
The following files & directories should be copied into an Upgrade folder before overwriting with new files. Use the following command set:

After obtaining the new fc_central.tar.gz, it can be unpacked using the following command set:
tar –xvf fc_central.tar

Using the configuration files that were backed up, the service can be restored to your previous settings by performing the following:
cp -rf /opt/utechsoft/central/upgrade/* /opt/utechsoft/central/
