Updating your instance

You should always check the release notes/changelog in case there are config deprecations, special update steps, etc.

Besides that, doing the following is generally enough:

For OTP installations

# Download the new release
su pleroma -s $SHELL -lc "./bin/pleroma_ctl update"

# Migrate the database, you are advised to stop the instance before doing that
su pleroma -s $SHELL -lc "./bin/pleroma_ctl migrate"

For from source installations (using git)

  1. Go to the working directory of Pleroma (default is /opt/pleroma)
  2. Run git pull. This pulls the latest changes from upstream.
  3. Run mix deps.get 1. This pulls in any new dependencies.
  4. Stop the Pleroma service.
  5. Run mix ecto.migrate 1 2. This task performs database migrations, if there were any.
  6. Start the Pleroma service.

  1. Depending on which install guide you followed (for example on Debian/Ubuntu), you want to run mix tasks as pleroma user by adding sudo -Hu pleroma before the command.

  2. Prefix with MIX_ENV=prod to run it using the production config file.
