Updating your install

If you would like to perform a manual update then you can do this by running the following command as the librenms user:

./daily.sh

This will update both the core LibreNMS files but also update the database structure if updates are available.

Advanced users

If you absolutely must update manually then you can do so by running the following commands:

cd /opt/librenms
git pull
php includes/sql-schema/update.php

Configuring the update channel

LibreNMS follows the master branch on github for daily updates.

Stable branch

You can change to the stable monthly branch by setting:

$config['update_channel'] = 'release';

Choose this branch if you want to have a stable release

Development branch

You can change to the development branch by setting:

$config['update_channel'] = 'master';

Choose this branch if you want the latest features at the cost that sometimes bugs are inadvertently introduced.

Disabling automatic updates

LibreNMS by default performs updates on a daily basis. This can be disabled by setting:

$config['update'] = 0;
