Upgrading Bionic

    Before doing an upgrade it's a good idea to check if you have created database backups and can restore a Bionic installation if anything goes wrong.

    Assuming that all works the upgrade procedure is actually similar to the installation procedure.

    Install the Bionic CLI for the version you want to upgrade to

    export BIONIC_VERSION=v1.7.31
    curl -OL https://github.com/bionic-gpt/bionic-gpt/releases/download/${BIONIC_VERSION}/bionic-cli-linux && chmod +x ./bionic-cli-linux && sudo mv ./bionic-cli-linux /usr/local/bin/bionic

    Try it out

    bionic -V

    Run the install

    Important You need to run the same command for an upgrade that you did for an install including all command line parameters.


    bionic install --pgadmin etc etc

    The bionic cli will upgrade the kubernetes operator and all the deployments. After a short time the pods will have restarted and you will be on the latest version.

    The bionic upgrade process automatically handles database schema migrations.
