Updating the Avast Business On-Premise Console (Linux)

This Article Applies to:

  • Avast Business On-Premise Console

There are multiple steps required to update the On-Premise Console running in a Docker container. We recommend using Docker Compose in the terminal to install and maintain Docker containers.

  1. Navigate to the directory containing the docker-compose.yml and .env files. Create a backup of the .env file by copying the file and renaming the copy “.env.backup
  2. Edit the .env file and change the AFB_VERSION=” line to the version you wish to update to
    • Version numbers are located in the Docker repository for avastsoftware/management-console under the Tags tab
  3. To upgrade the console without stopping the database instance, use the following command from the terminal: docker-compose up --no-deps -d server
  4. If you wish to remove the previous server image, you will need to know the previous AFB_VERSION number, which can be found in the .env.backup file
  5. To remove the old server image, use the following command: docker rmi avastsoftware/management-console:<old version tag>
