Help upgrading from 5.0.2 to 6.0 - Upgrade guide is not useful


#1

Issue Summary

I’ve installed a production environment on EC2 with the AMI provided on the setup guide. However, the AMIs on the site are for version 5.0.2

The Upgrade Guide doesn’t help clarifying how to do the migration on this case.

The main issue for me is this line:

  1. Update /opt/redash/docker-compose.yml Redash image reference to the one you want to upgrade to.

How do I get a new updated image reference?

Technical details:

  • Redash Version: 5.0.2
  • Browser/OS: N/a
  • How did you install Redash: AWS AMI

That’s a very good question! :flushed: We should make it easy to find. Anyway, in your case it’s redash/redash:6.0.0.b8537.

This is something I hit yesterday when upgrading my local docker images as well.

The approach I used was (manually) taking at look at the URL from the setup.sh file:

https://version.redash.io/api/releases?channel=stable

The “docker_image” entry for the first errr… entry is the one to use. :smile:

An alternative approach is to use the docker hub tags page:

https://hub.docker.com/r/redash/redash/tags

That’s probably easier for people than visually parsing json.
