Upgrade Installation#

Upgrading RStudio Connect requires limited downtime (typically less than 10 minutes).

Upgrade planning#

  • During the installation, the RStudio Connect service is restarted.
  • Scheduled document renders are not interrupted.
  • Connections to running applications and APIs are closed.
  • Users can be prompted with a warning ahead of an upgrade using System Messages.

Info

New features, deprecations, and breaking changes are announced on the RStudio Blog for each version release. When performing an upgrade from a much older version of RStudio Connect, it is recommended that you review the detailed Release Notes.

Download and run the installation script#

To perform an upgrade, download and run the installation script. The script installs a new version of RStudio Connect on top of the earlier one. Existing configuration settings are respected unless otherwise mentioned in the release notes.

Note

The installation script must be run by a privileged user or a user with sudo privileges.

Post installation upgrade#
