By default, LibreNMS is set to automatically update. If you have disabled this feature then you can perform a manual update.

Manual update

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


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 without using ./ then you can do so by running the following commands:

cd /opt/librenms
git pull
composer install --no-dev

Not using means that you will also lose a lot of automatic database clean up, you will need to do this manually.

Disabling automatic updates

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

$config['update'] = 0;
