Changes and Fixes in 13.3.0

Location Tracking

The location reporting feature in FileWave is disabled by default.
It is recommended that you verify that this feature is in accordance with your organization’s policies and AUP (Acceptable Use Policy). Notify your end users before activating location reporting, as enabling the feature will prompt for permission to location information.
Read more... The Location Tracking KB (https://kb.filewave.com/display/KB/Location+Tracking)

If you upgrade from FileWave 13.1.3 or below, /fwxserver will be moved to its new location /usr/local/filewave/fwxserver. In case moving is not possible (specific mount point for instance), upgrade will stop and will require manual data folder move.

For Details please refer to fwxserver folder relocation in FileWave Server 13.1.5+ on macOS and Linux Platforms

Backup Script Update:

With this relocation of /fwxserver, the backup script must be updated on your server to ensure a proper backup is being captured.

Please reference the following for more information; https://kb.filewave.com/display/KB/Automated+Backup

Security Changes

Version 13.0.x introduces higher security standards which have impact on self-signed certificate usage.

While it is recommended to use Trusted-CA issued certificates, you can still use self-signed certificate with FileWave ; please make sure you follow the upgrade steps described in this KB article.


With FileWave 13.0.x, FileWave uses new Apple Push Notifications service with HTTP/2 protocol ; make sure your FileWave server can contact https://api.push.apple.com (port 443).


Starting with FileWave 13.1.0, all components (clients and boosters) will be assigned a certificate to validate their access to your FileWave instance. This implies that Boosters need to be enrolled to be part of your FileWave setup.

When upgrading, a Compatibility Mode will automatically be enabled to ease transition ; in this mode, already enrolled clients will automatically be assigned a certificate, but Boosters will require manual "create certificate" operation once upgraded to 13.1.

You can figure out which booster requires a certificate by looking at the booster view.

If you are using a self signed certificate for your FileWave Server, Booster trust store needs to be updated to trust this certificate. The easiest way is to go through our Custom Package Builder Service and generate a Booster Package which will contain the server certificate.

Upgrading Your FileWave Server

 Please make sure you have a recent backup before upgrading your server.
