Updating an On Premises Instance

Updating an On Premises instance of API Fortress is done as follows:

  • Back up the databases. (Optional, but recommended) 
  • Stop the containers
    • From the ‘core’ directory, issue a docker-compose stop command and wait for the operation to complete. This command stops the currently-running Docker containers.
  • Pull the updated containers
    • From the ‘core’ directory, issue a docker-compose pull command and wait for the operation to complete. This command pulls updated images from the API Fortress Docker repository.
  • Restart the containers
    • From the ‘core’ directory, issue a ./start_all.sh command to restart the containers and wait for the operation to complete. This script restarts the containers in the proper order.

Once the preceding steps are completed, the On Premises version of API Fortress will be fully updated.
