Portainer has been, for a while, my go-to container administration platform. It’s not solely very highly effective, but it surely’s additionally fairly user-friendly, and within the recreation of containers, that’s a formidable mixture.

Portainer is deployed as a container itself. And with the event staff incessantly releasing new variations, you all the time wish to ensure you keep on high of that. To that finish, any time you log into your Portainer occasion and spot {that a} new model is on the market (Determine A), it’s time to improve as quickly as potential.

My present Portainer deployment is outdated.

As a result of Portainer is a container, you may’t simply replace the present deployment; as a substitute, you must cease and take away your present deployment and redeploy. Happily, you may deploy Portainer with persistent storage (as I present in Find out how to deploy the Portainer container administration device with persistent storage), which suggests while you redeploy your whole configurations and containers will stay intact.

With that mentioned, let’s replace Portainer to the newest model.

What you’ll want

To comply with alongside, you’ll want a machine operating Docker or Docker Group Version. In case you don’t have already got a Portainer occasion already up, you may nonetheless deploy the newest launch, simply skip the primary steps of stopping and eradicating the older occasion. You’ll additionally want a consumer who belongs to the docker group in your internet hosting server.

Let’s get to the replace.

Find out how to cease and take away the present Portainer container

The very first thing you will need to do is situated the Portainer container ID with the command:

docker ps -a | portainer

You must see one thing like this within the output:

0eab77c40087   portainer/portainer-ce      "/portainer"         4 weeks in the past  Up 3 weeks                0.0.0.0:8000->8000/tcp, :::8000->8000/tcp, 0.0.0.0:9443->9443/tcp, :::9443->9443/tcp, 9000/tcp         portainer

The random string of characters is the container ID (within the above case it’s 0eab77c40087). To cease and take away the container, you solely want to make use of the primary 4 characters. First, cease the container with:

docker cease 0eab

Ensure to vary out the primary 4 characters with these of your operating Portainer container.

Subsequent, take away the container with:

docker rm 0eab

Find out how to deploy the brand new model

Earlier than we run the deploy command, let’s first pull down the newest model with:

docker pull portainer/portainer-ce:newest

As soon as the brand new picture has pulled down, deploy the newest Portainer model with:

docker run -d -p 8000:8000 -p 9443:9443 --name=portainer --restart=all the time -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v portainer_data:/information portainer/portainer-ce

Give the container time to deploy. After a minute or so, level your browser to http://SERVER:9443, the place SERVER is the IP tackle of the internet hosting server, and log again into Portainer with the identical credentials you used beforehand. You must see the brand new model has been deployed (Determine B).

Determine B

I went from model 2.13.1 to 2.14.1.

And that’s all there’s to updating Portainer to the newest launch. As a result of we initially deployed with persistent storage, this course of is extremely straightforward and painless.
