How update Xibo with Docker on Ubuntu 16.04 on VPS


I wonder how to update Xibo with Docker on Ubuntu 16.04 on VPS.

Thank you !

It should not be a problem, it’s just a matter of downing the containers, new compose files (or edit of existing ones) and then the up command to bring them back in new version -

Thank you for your answer. I’'l try to update this way.

Hi @Peter,

I forgot to tell you that I want to update from 1.8.0 from the 1.8.9

I had problems with the backup cron,I’ve restarted my VPS, so when it has restarted a new backup was created (date and time of restart). First problem is solved :slight_smile:

But I’ve got this error message when I want to start the update :

root@vps:~# docker-compose stop
Can’t find a suitable configuration file in this directory or any
parent. Are you in the right directory?

    Supported filenames: docker-compose.yml, docker-compose.yaml

Thank you for your help



You must be in the directory with your docker-compose.yml files. Your screenshot looks like you’re in /root which is unlikely to be where they are.

So say your shared directory was in /opt/xibo, then you would first cd /opt/xibo and then run your docker-compose commands.

If you used the custom ports or remote mysql templates, don’t forget to add the -f file switch to those commands as you did when you set the system up.

Thank you very much. It works :slight_smile:
