The release page contains a changelog, and below it, upgrade instructions. Read and understand the release instructions.
Some tasks (like database migrations) can take a while, so we advise you to run commands inside a
Always make sure your database, config file (by default at
/etc/mobilizon/config.exs) and media uploads directory are properly backuped before performing upgrades.
Unless stated otherwise in the release notes, the following steps are enough to upgrade Mobilizon.
Fetch latest build¶
To get the latest package URL, you should go to our release page and copy the URL from the latest
The https://joinmobilizon.org/latest-package URL redirects to the latest release package available (Gitlab doesn't allow to do this directly currently), but you shouldn't use it it you want to get a beta version or a different version.
- Download the latest release build and extract it:
curl -L 'https://joinmobilizon.org/latest-package' -o /tmp/mobilizon.tar.gz tar xzf /tmp/mobilizon.tar.gz -C /tmp/
Perform the upgrade¶
Stop the running Mobilizon process
sudo systemctl stop mobilizon
Move the release to the install folder, replacing the previous install:
sudo rm -rf /opt/mobilizon sudo mv /tmp/mobilizon /opt/ sudo rm /tmp/mobilizon.tar.gz
Set the proper owner to
sudo chown -R mobilizon:mobilizon /opt/mobilizon
Perform the eventual database migrations¶
You can run this command safely even if no migrations are needed.
sudo -u mobilizon /opt/mobilizon/bin/mobilizon_ctl migrate
Let's switch back one last time to your regular user.
sudo systemctl restart mobilizon
You can follow the Mobilizon logs to check that everything works properly.
sudo journalctl -u mobilizon -f
That’s all! You’re running the new version of Mobilizon now.
