Upgrading Corteza

This guide helps you upgrade your Corteza to the newest version in no time!

While there are internal safeguards in place that can prevent data loss or other kinds of disasters, make sure you backup your database before you upgrade. Refer to devops guide on backup procedure for details.

If you are upgrading multiple versions at the same time; for example from 2019.12 to 2020.9; you should follow all the upgrade guides between the two versions.

Especially before any major version upgrade, it is recommended that before upgrading your production you either:
  • upgrade your staging environment, or

  • deploy a temporary environment with a copy of the production database and perform a test upgrade there.

Steps to upgrade Corteza when deployed with docker-compose:
  1. changing image versions in your docker-compose.yaml (or .env) file,

  2. pull new images from docker hub with docker-compose pull,

  3. recreate containers with docker-compose up -d.

Upgrading to 2022.9

The 2022.9 upgrade does not require any additional interactions from the system administrator. Please note the changelog and the important upgrade notes disclosed in the changelog section.
