How do you update Discourse?

(Victor Aprea) #1

Discourse tells me version is available and very courteously asks me to “Please upgrade!”. Do I do that by simply doing a “git pull” on the installation, or is there more to it than that?

Provided you are on the only form of officially supported install, our Docker install, visit the URL


And click the Upgrade button.

If for some reason that does not work, SSH into your server and issue these commands at a console:

cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

If you are somehow on a pre-V1 version of Discourse, you’ll need to upgrade to V1.
