Update ELMA365

ELMA365 On-Premises Standard and ELMA365 On-Premises Enterprise are updated in the same way as they are installed.

Before updating, make a data dump of the installed ELMA365. To do this, use the utility described in the How to administer the server article or select the [B]ackup now option by pressing the B key at the following update step:

Be sure you have made data backup before update. Choose: [B]ackup now (default), [C]ontinue, [E]xit.

The dump will be saved to the /backup folder with a timestamp.

To ensure data integrity during migration from one ELMA365 version to another, we recommend updating to each minor version (indicated in the second part of a version’s number) without skipping releases. For example, update version 2022.9.1 to 2022.10.1.

To start the update, open the command line on the server. Run the following command:

curl -fsSL -o elma365-installer.sh https://dl.elma365.com/onPremise/master/latest/download && chmod +x elma365-installer.sh && ./elma365-installer.sh

The system will ask for confirmation, then the update process will start.

If you are using proxy settings, the script will ask you to verify the current settings or specify new values for the variables that determine the proxy. Read more in the Install ELMA365 to MicroK8s behind a proxy article.

To manage the application’s security, at the next step, you can enable the Uncomplicated Firewall (ufw) and apply the recommended rules, add your own rules, or disable the Firewall.

When the update is completed, the following message will appear: “ELMA365 successfully updated”.

If any errors occur, you can view information about them in the log.

Cluster update

To update a cluster, open the command line on any node and run the following command:

curl -fsSL -o elma365-installer.sh https://dl.elma365.com/onPremise/master/latest/download && chmod +x elma365-installer.sh && ./elma365-installer.sh

Then update the remaining nodes. Use the --upgrade-node option for each server:

curl -fsSL -o elma365-installer.sh https://dl.elma365.com/onPremise/master/latest/download && chmod +x elma365-installer.sh && ./elma365-installer.sh --upgrade-node

Servers in a cluster must be updated sequentially, one server at a time.
