Updating RIPS

Use the following steps to update RIPS On-Premises on your local server with the help of the RIPS installer:

  • Simply run sudo ./rips3.py rips:update
    • It is highly recommended to create a database backup before applying any updates
    • Do not interrupt the updating process! Database migrations might run for a while

All On-Premises customers are informed by email when important updates are available.

# and move the file "images.tar" to the current working directory.
