How to Upgrade to CODE 2.0
To upgrade to CODE 2.0 from a previous version, all you need to do is to pull the latest image from Docker hub and restart the container. Here’s how.
First, log into your server and pull down the latest
collabora/code image by running the following command.
sudo docker pull collabora/code:latest
The command will download the intermediate image layer between the existing image on your host and the latest image on Docker hub. Once the download is complete, there will be two collabora/code images with different tags identifying the version.
sudo docker images
REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE collabora/code latest 499f29f2703e 2 weeks ago 1.75 GB collabora/code <none> 05a1b4c2d8db 5 weeks ago 1.129 GB
Next, list running containers
sudo docker ps
Then stop and remove the running
collabora/code container. The
container-id can be obtained from
sudo docker ps command.
sudo docker stop container-id sudo docker rm container-id
Now run a new container from the latest
collabora/code image. Replace
nextcloud\\.your-domain\\.com with the domain name of your Nextcloud server.
sudo docker run -t -d -p 127.0.0.1:9980:9980 -e 'domain=nextcloud\\.your-domain\\.com' --restart always --cap-add MKNOD collabora/code
