Docker Version Update? (Still 5/22 not 11/11)

hostmaster 1 year ago updated by Vlad R 3 weeks ago 7

Is there a reason why the docker version still shows 5/22? I see that the docker image was updated on 11/14, so is this just a versioning issue? Or is docker reporting the correct version of 5/22 and it needs an update?

Unlike with other software, because FileRun is a web-based application that in many cases gets customized, the Docker image is used for delivery of the environment FileRun runs in, not for delivery of the FileRun application files. Updating the Docker image will never update FileRun, because that would mean you would loose any customization made to the application files.

This being said, for updating a FileRun installation, please use this guide: https://docs.filerun.com/updating

The official Docker image (https://hub.docker.com/r/afian/filerun/) is running the latest FileRun version. May I ask where exactly are you seeing the different version?

In the docker image itself:

And here is the docker image information:

I attempted a new download from the hub but it's still reporting the same from within Filerun.

I think the docker image is again poised for an update :). Thanks!

Hello,I recently installed the docker image and it is still on an older 2018 version. When I attempt to update from the software menu it downloads the update, but after clicking install the server becomes unreachable with the logs showing segmentation faults for several child processes. I have recovered with backups and reinstalling the docker image, is the docker version not compatible with the built in update or is there some steps I could take on manually updating the Filerun within the docker image?

Sorry to revive this old thread but can you please clarify the correct credentials?

https://docs.filerun.com/updating says: 

Access your FileRun installation and log in as superuser (The default login name of the superuser is “admin”).

https://docs.filerun.com/docker says:

The default FileRun credentials are as follows:

* Username: superuser

* Password: superuser

+1

The default FileRun superuser username is either "admin" or "superuser", depending on version. If you are installing using the Docker version, use the Docker installation guide.
If you are looking to update, the person who installed FileRun should know the username of the FileRun superuser.
