Updating PI-Server

Backup all the important data to make sure you can roll back

Do a backup as described here: 2.1.0 Backup

Update Docker images

If your server has a connection to the internet:

Request a login (username and password) for the Rentouch-Docker-Hub from Rentouch if you do not already have one.

docker login

If your server does not have a connection to the internet:

Install the updated offline installable images

  • Request a download link from rentouch for the updated .tar archived docker images.
  • Move the .tar archive to the server on which you are installing pi-server.
  • Input the command: (this may take a few minutes..)
docker load -i pi-server-images_2.1.0.tar

Update PI-Server config files

On the host-system download the newest version (checkout to see all versions) of the PI-Server docker archive and extract it:

mkdir -p pi-server-docker_2.1.0 && tar -xf pi-server-docker_2.1.0.tar -C pi-server-docker_2.1.0
cd pi-server-docker_2.1.0

Run the updater. You have to pass the path to your PI-Server folder (which contains the docker-compose and all the data) as the first argument.

python /path/to/my/pi-server/installation

When the migration to the newest version is finished restart the pi-server by

cd /path/to/my/pi-server/installation

As a last step: You can clean up by removing the installer

rm pi-server-docker_2.1.0.tar pi-server-docker_2.1.0
