Upgrade Phabricator

It is strongly recommended to create a backup before starting the update process. If you have important data, create and try to restore a backup to ensure that everything works properly.

You can upgrade the application only without modifying any other stack components. Phabricator uses two additional components, libphutil and arcanist, which are already included and can be updated too. Follow the steps below:

  • Stop the servers:

    $ /opt/bitnami/ stop
  • Upgrade libphutil:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/phabricator/libphutil
    $ git pull
  • Upgrade Arcanist:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/phabricator/arcanist
    $ git pull
  • Upgrade Phabricator. Ensure that MySQL is running before executing these commands:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/phabricator/htdocs
    $ git pull
    $ /opt/bitnami/ start mysql
    $ /opt/bitnami/apps/phabricator/htdocs/bin/storage upgrade
  • Start servers:

    $ /opt/bitnami/ start
