Upgrade to 1.4.0?

What is the proper procedure to upgrade from 1.3.x to 1.4.0? I can't seem to find a step-by-step procedure.



There should be a box telling you there is an update when you log in to octoprint.
Just click on update now

It depends on how you installed. For me, I began with OctoPi image on my Raspberry Pi 2. I've upgraded several times so it's a bit different for me now. The web interface notified me of the update but said it could not be applied there.

For me, upgrading from 1.3.9 to 1.4.0 required a few steps that I got from Setting up OctoPrint on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian

  1. Open a shell on the server. Connect with SSH if headless.
  2. Locate the installation location and make a backup with something like tar -czf OctoPrint.backup.tar.gz OctroPrint
  3. Activate venv with something like source ~/OctoPrint/venv/bin/activate
  4. Perform the upgrade. If you want to install the latest version, run pip install --upgrade octoprint or specify a version with pip install octoprint==1.4.0
  5. Once the upgrade successfully completes, restart OctoPrint. I did this using the web interface.
