The update is first performed on the master node and then on all slave nodes.

Via command line

To update SolusVM via command line use the following script:



When the script is used on the master node the update is performed on both the master node and the slave nodes.

The script has four options:

1: To update your whole infrastructure to the latest stable version, use option 1.

/usr/bin/upcp 1


2: To update your whole infrastructure to the latest mainline version, use option 2.

/usr/bin/upcp 2


3: To update your whole infrastructure to the latest beta version, use option 3.

/usr/bin/upcp 3


When the script is performed on a slave node, it affects only the particular slave node. You can use any of the 3 options above on a slave node also.

After the update is completed check if all the nodes are correctly updated to the latest version. For that:

1: Log in to your SolusVM panel.

2: Click on List nodes under the Nodes option.

3: Click on the checkbox on the top right corner to select all the nodes and click on Check Version. All the nodes and their corresponding version will be displayed.
