How to update your local DocSpace

If you have a running instance of ONLYOFFICE DocSpace Enterprise Edition other than version 2.5, you can easily update it to the latest version by changing the default false value of the -u parameter to true. This can be done with the following command:

bash -u true

This command will consequently stop the required containers, remove them and then run the latest versions of the corresponding ONLYOFFICE DocSpace Enterprise components.

If you want to update only the DocSpace component without updating the others, you can execute this command:

bash -u true -dsv v2.5.0 -idocs false -irbt false -irds false

In this command, the -dsv parameter refers to the DocSpace version.
