New Version, how to handle it

If a new Version of DATAGERRY is released, what do we need to do to update our default docker-based installation? Without loosing data, for sure.

Hi @J.Limmer,

just pull the new version of the DATAGERRY Docker image, if you use the latest tag in your docker-compose.yml or switch to tag 1.1.0. and restart the container. On the first start of the new version, an existing database will be migrated automatically to the new version.

Thanks. To be fair I don’t really know docker. So I tried running docker pull nethinks/datagerry which didn’t change anything so I read a little bit about it and came up with a working procedure.

To help other docker-noobs I will share what I did:

  • Navigating to the folder where the docker-compose.yml had been saved
  • Running docker-compose pull
  • After successfully pulling the new image I ran docker-compose up -d

Thanks for sharing. We should improve our documentation with a better description of an update process.
