NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:
$ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."
The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.
It is strongly recommended to create a backup before starting the update process. If you have important data, create and restore a backup to ensure that everything works properly.
You can upgrade the application itself without modifying any other component included in the stack. To do so, follow these steps:
Navigate to the frappe-bench directory of your ERPNext installation. Depending on your installation type, execute the following commands:
Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages):
$ cd /opt/bitnami/frappe-bench
Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations):
$ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/erpnext/htdocs/frappe-bench
Executing the following commands as bitnami user or the user who installed the application:
$ . ../venv/bin/activate $ bench update $ deactivate
