Though it has been discussed a few times, I should mention that sysPass does not provide an automated upgrading method for code files. This is so because it would imply installing some kind of software libraries like Git and develop an UI interface within sysPass that will try to resolve many situations when dealing with CVS repositories (merge, conflicts, etc.).
Another question is about those installations on Docker or Kubernetes, which don’t rely (philosophically speaking) on such kind on rolling updates based on CVS, since it will break the philosophy of containers: immutable, reproducible, scalable and so on.
That being said, all-in-one apps are not a great deal for these days, so I think the best way to update is to be performed externally, that is either using Git or Docker tagged images (through Docker Compose or Helm).
As described on release upgrading notes
Install Git, point your CLI on the webserver root and run the following command:
$ git clone https://github.com/nuxsmin/sysPass.git
In order to get the latest updates:
$ git pull
The “master” branch on Github holds the most recent stable version
After it, if database changes are required, you’ll need to follow the steps through the web UI
Perform a full database and application backup using external tools like “mysqldump” and “tar” before updating
The fine and easy way is installing Docker Compose and every new version is released out, you only need to change the image tag on composer’s YAML.
version: '2' services: app: container_name: syspass-app image: syspass/syspass:3.1.0 # Set this version tag to desired one restart: always ...
After changing the version tag, tun the following command:
docker-compose -p syspass -f docker-compose.yml up -d
It will update the current sysPass container with the new version. If database changes are required, you’ll need to follow the steps through the web UI
