Question about NodeBB update
Hello i am new in NodeBB , i want to ask if NodeBB have some sort of easy update just like for example wordpress have. So you just click update and it done all for you ?
And can i update from NodeBB v0.7.1 to v1.7.5 without any problems ?
If i understand correctly than NodeBB updates usually are done with git and composer ?
@mārcis-veļikanovs NodeBB updates are done with the the CLI. It usually only takes two or three commands.
Okay will check documentation.
Make sure you have a backup/snapshot to revert to, in case of any issues
But the real question is , if i can just do a single update from version v0.7.1 to v1.7.5 without any issue or i need to do updates from v0.7.1 to v0.7.2 etc ?
Also if i use DigitalOcean , i made a snapshot, can i upgrade with no data lose or i just need to backup redis too ?
You should always have a backup before updating anything in my opinion. Better to be safe. I dont see any problems to update from 0.7.1 to 1.7.5.
- Download new source
- Copy over the config and static content (if you have any)
- run ./nodebb upgrade
Simple as pie, but remember. Always backup first
