This page here has been created for the latest stable release of Salvus. You have chosen to view the documentation for another Salvus version. Please be aware there might be some small differences you have to account for.


This section will document the major changes in each Salvus version as well as updating guides assisting in upgrading your Salvus installations.


There are a few different ways to upgrade your Salvus installation.

Built-in Commands

If you already have a running Salvus installation you can update in two ways:

Update the local Python installation:

salvus-flow upgrade --help

Update the Salvus installation of a remote site:

salvus-flow upgrade-site --help

In both cases an interactive wizard will guide you along the way.

Running the Downloader Again and Manually Upgrading

Running the downloader again will ensure all local files are updated to the latest available version. It will download anything that misses/has been updated and keep your folder structure in consistent state. You then might have to invoke pip install ... again and reinitialize any sites.
