We've tried to limit breaking changes to the develop branch, so 1.4.3 should work with minimal problems 😄
Upgraded two sites today with no issues. One was on 1.4.0 and the other was 1.2.0.
I see this message on dash board. But has no idea how it works. Please tell me how to do it.
Here is the guide https://github.com/designcreateplay/NodeBB/wiki/Upgrading-NodeBB
Since I don't actually have a community started and just have nodebb running on my server to show off currently I don't worry about the backups. I just type in:
Thanks @HolyPhoenix . I would be needing backup as well as my site is currently getting visitors.
@meetdilip All plugins will work fine if they work for 0.4.1.
Good thing i made a backup before trying to update, i just did ./nodebb stop then ./nodebb upgrade and messed up the site, gave me a heart attack, doing this and successfully updated, Thanks.
All my plugins are working properly with the new version.
It's always recommend to backup, I found out the hard way even though I'm technically minded enough to know I should be backing up regularly. I didn't and I lost a months worth of data.
In general plugins should be compatible within a minor version (ex. 0.4 to 0.5), at least from now on We are doing deprecation notices so you will know in advanced what plugins will break when you upgrade.
