Upgrade to 4.0.14

Upgrade from 4.0.x to 4.0.14

I need to upgrade from 4.0.7 to 4.0.14. I just downloaded the tgz but don’t know how to proceed.

But where is the documentation on how to perform the upgrade? A step by step guide would be helpful. I setup the initial 4.0.7 so I’m not oblivious on how Linux works, I just don’t want to assume I know how this upgrade works.


Environmental information

Operating system information


Package versions

  • Graylog 4.0.7
  • MongoDB 4.2.14
  • Elasticsearch 7.10.2

There is online docs for upgrades here - hopefully that will help?



If this is a package install (i.e. yum) and if you have your repo pinned like this

root # cat /etc/yum.repos.d/graylog.repo


Why not use the following.

root # yum update graylog-server

I had already found this link. It was available where the download was available. It offers no suggestion on what command or sequence of commands are needed to actually perform the upgrade.

The yum update graylog-server command did the trick.

This process should be documented in the release notes and/or an installation/upgrade guide. Not everyone is an experience Linux administrator.


Reviewing the pages, you are right… the “upgrading” section does not give actionable commands… they are actually buried in the installation page. Documentation upgraded recently and they are still working out the kinks, I will post a notification to them… thanks!

BTW - Mark your solution for future searchers to find… :slight_smile:
