Upgrading Self-Hosted Scalr

As a precaution, we generally recommend taking a database backup before upgrading. To upgrade, follow the steps below:

Stop all Scalr hosts using:

scalr-server-manage stop all

Upgrade Scalr across all hosts:

##For RPM based installations##
yum upgrade scalr-server

##For DEB based installations##
apt-get upgrade scalr-server

Once all hosts have finished running the upgrade, run the reconfigure on the main database node first. If you are not using embedded MySQL, you can go straight to reconfiguring the application nodes:

scalr-server-ctl reconfigure

Once the main database is finished reconfiguring run the reconfigure across all other hosts:

scalr-server-ctl reconfigure
