I think what I do is check the get checkout to the version I want to upgrade to, and then run:

1) docker-compose run --rm web rails db:migrate
2) docker-compose run --rm web rails assets:precompile

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

@agocs does that make sense to you?

@jon I'm about to take off. If I don't reply to you tomorrow, remind me!

@jon The general upgrade instructions seem to suggest more steps.

docs.joinmastodon.org/administ

My _guess_ is you might need to

1) get the latest version (`docker exec -ti [container id] bash` , fetch tags, then check out the tag you want)

2) DB migration

3) Asset precompile step

4) systemctl restart mastodon-sidekiq

5) systemctl reload mastodon-web

Thoughts?

@agocs I did look at that. But my install has no live directory. I may just snapshot the disk and give it a whirl. If it crashes I’ll restore.

@jon Can I assume you were successful? Happy 2019, by the way!

@agocs haven’t tried yet. But happy 2019 to you!

@agocs I swear I'm going to do this at some point. 2019 has proven to be quite ambitious so far.
