Update Servey Solutions (Docker)

Dear SS admin and expert,

I am currently running Server Solutions on Amazon LightSail using SurveySolutions Docker (Deploy using Docker). My current version is 23.06.1 (build 34560) and I want to update to 23.09.1 (build 35025).

I followed the instructions in the documentation, which are:

  • Stop docker container with Survey Solutions
  • Run docker pull surveysolutions/surveysolutions
  • Restart docker container

However, after doing this, the version is still the same. I am not sure what I did wrong or what I should do next.

Please, can someone who is an expert on this help me and explain what I need to do?

Thank you very much.

: Updating Survey Solutions

Yes, the docs need to be fixed to correct this part: you’ll need to remove the old container (running the previous version) and create a new one. So it would be:

docker rm hq # or whatever name you have to the container

And then create the new container with the docker run ... command.

Yes, my container name is ‘hq.’ Removing the container won’t result in data loss?. Could you provide an example of how to create a new container with the updated version?

Thank you,
