AWS Self Hosted Redash instance upgrade from V6 service to V8 docker

Hello,

We have redash V 6.0.0+b8536 (4780bd9c)

How can we upgrade to V8?
We checked the How to Upgrade Guide:

Also, checked the How to Upgrade (Legacy Images)

Thanks,
Shiga

Is something not clear in the docs?

Yes. It’s not clear how to upgrade first from v6 to v7.

Can you please help?

You linked to the instructions already :smiley:


Upgrade Process

  1. Make sure to backup your data. You only need to backup Redash’s PostgreSQL database (the database Redash stores metadata in, not the ones you might be querying) as the data in Redis is transient.
  2. Change directory to /opt/redash .
  3. Update /opt/redash/docker-compose.yml Redash image reference to the one you want to upgrade to.
  4. Stop Redash services: docker-compose stop server scheduler scheduled_worker adhoc_worker (you might need to list additional services if you updated your configuration)
  5. Apply migration (if necessary): docker-compose run --rm server manage db upgrade
  6. Start services: docker-compose up -d

Done!
