Upgrade Parse Server

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and Mac OS X) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). Learn more.

To upgrade the Bitnami Parse Server Stack to the latest version, follow the steps below:

  • Change to the root user:

    $ sudo su
    
  • Stop the Parse server:

    $ installdir/ctlscript.sh stop parse
    
  • Update with npm:

    $ cd installdir/apps/parse/htdocs
    $ npm update -g npm
    $ npm install parse-server parse-dashboard
    $ ../bnconfig --machine_hostname *localhost*
    

    Remember to replace the localhost placeholder with the public IP of your machine.

  • Change file permissions:

    $ chown bitnami:daemon -R .
    
  • Restart the Parse server:

    $ installdir/ctlscript.sh restart parse
