Note: this guide only applies if you’ve installed OpenProject using our DEB/RPM packages.
Upgrading OpenProject is as easy as installing a newer OpenProject package and running the
openproject configure command.
Debian / Ubuntu
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade openproject sudo openproject configure
CentOS / RHEL
sudo yum update sudo yum install openproject sudo openproject configure
sudo zypper update openproject sudo openproject configure
Re-configuring the application
openproject configure, the wizard will display new steps that you weren’t available or configured in previous installations. If you want to perform changes to your configuration or are unsure what steps are available, you can safely run
openproject reconfigure to walk through the entire configuration process again.
Note that this still takes previous values into consideration. Values that should not change from your previous configurations can be skipped by pressing
<Return>. This also applies for steps with passwords, which are shown as empty even though they may have a value. Skipping those steps equals to re-use the existing value.
