Installation Process

After installing the new OSSEC package, you'll need to double-check /var/ossec/etc/ossec.conf and add back any local customizations.  Also, if you had added any local rules to /var/ossec/rules/local_rules.xml, you'll need to do the following:
sudo cp /var/ossec/rules/local_rules.xml-2.6 /var/ossec/rules/local_rules.xml

You can then restart OSSEC as follows:
sudo service ossec-hids-server restart
