Upgrade self-install from Graylog 2.3 to 2.4 - Should be simple?


(Bronius Motekaitis) #1

Hi - I have Graylog 2.3 deployed via an ansible role I found somewhere some time ago. It uses https://packages.graylog2.org/repo/packages/graylog-2.3-repository_latest.rpm so it’s not an “appliance install,” I guess. I don’t see a straightforward “here’s how to upgrade your Graylog instance” in documentation. I do see how to upgrade omnibus appliance on Ubuntu, and I do see “you can upgrade from 2.3 to 2.4,” but the super simple “just do this” eludes me.

I’d be happy to augment existing documentation with some concise steps for this use case if someone can nudge me, and I successfully upgrade.

End user,

He @texas-bronius

we have this docs here:

http://docs.graylog.org/en/2.4/pages/upgrade.html

where you can find this:

Should the current installation use operating system packages, update the repository package to the target version and use the system tools to upgrade the package. For .rpm based systems this update guide and for .deb based systems this update guide should help.

Can you please clarify what you would need in the docs to be more specific?

Huh.

Shoot. That couldn’t have been easier! Thank you for pointing me right to the right places, and the link from “For .rpm based systems this update guide” was exactly what I needed.

Thanks for taking it easy on me :slight_smile: My Graylog 2.4 was a breeze to update, and it picked right up where it left off.
