Upgrade Phabricator

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

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:

    $ installdir/ stop
  • Upgrade libphutil:

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

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

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

    $ installdir/ start
