Upgrading your Snikket instance
We periodically announce new releases of the Snikket server software on our blog, Mastodon and Twitter. You will also receive update notifications directly from your instance when it is time to upgrade.
Upgrading to a new Snikket release is typically very easy. The correct process to use depends on the method you initially used to set up your Snikket instance. Each method is explained here.
If you are using a version installed from the original quick-start guide on the website, use these commands:
cd /etc/snikket docker-compose pull docker-compose up -d
If you installed Snikket using the snikket-selfhosted scripts, simply run:
cd /opt/snikket git pull ./scripts/update.sh
If you’re using our hosting service, you can upgrade by visiting your hosting dashboard and clicking the ‘Update’ button next to your instance.
Note: Updates are not always available on the hosted platform immediately after release. If the ‘Update’ button is not present, try again later. Typically you will receive a notification when an update is available.
