Update Manually on Ubuntu or Debian

This page describes how to update manually to the latest release of rippled on Ubuntu Linux. These instructions assume you have already installed rippled using the native package. Ripple recommends setting up automatic updates instead, where possible.

Caution: To upgrade from rippled 1.2.x to 1.3.1 or higher on Ubuntu Linux, you should follow the 1.3.1 migration instructions. The following instructions assume you have already installed the native APT package provided with versions 1.3.1 and up.

Tip: To perform these steps all at once, you can run the /opt/ripple/bin/update-rippled.sh script, which is included with the rippled package and is compatible with Ubuntu and Debian starting with rippled version 1.3.1. This script should be run as a sudo user.

To update manually, complete the following steps:

  1. Update repositories:

    $ sudo apt -y update
    
  2. Upgrade the rippled package:

    $ sudo apt -y upgrade rippled
    
  3. Reload the systemd unit files:

    $ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
    
  4. Restart the rippled service:

    $ sudo service rippled restart
