Upgrading Docker Applications

On the red server, we run many applications in Docker. Here's the general procedure for upgrading them, along with instructions for specific apps..


#backup the db
mysqldump invoiceninja > in_pre38.sql

cd docker
# This upgades ALL Docker images that need updating (i.e. unless they're using a version-specific tag)
sudo docker-compose pull
# This updates a single image
sudo docker-compose pull invoiceninja

sudo docker-compose up -d --build
# If you need to free up some space
docker system prune -a


  • Clear InvoiceNinja's cache by load any page with ?clear_cache=true appended.
  • In the env file, uncomment APP_DEBUG=true and bounce the image.
