Update Limelight

Follow these steps to update your installation of Limelight to the latest versions.

This guide assumes you have completed all the steps in the Installing Limelight tutorial.

1. Open a Terminal

On Linux and MacOS, open a normal terminal. On Windows, if you followed our instructions for installing Docker, follow the directions on our Docker Installation Tutorial to open a Linux terminal.

2. Shutdown Limelight

Go into your Limelight project directory:

cd ~/limelight

Shutdown Limelight:

sudo docker-compose down

3. Update Limelight

Use the following command to automatically download the latest version of all of the Limelight application components:

sudo docker-compose pull

4. (Optional) Remove Orphaned Docker Images

If new Limelight components are pulled down using the command above, the replaced Docker images will be “orphaned”. To remove the old Docker images and free up disk space, you can use the following command:

sudo docker system prune

You will see the following output:

WARNING! This will remove:
  - all stopped containers
  - all networks not used by at least one container
  - all dangling images
  - all dangling build cache

Are you sure you want to continue? [y/N]

Enter y and hit enter. The orphaned images will be removed.

5. Restart Limelight

Use the following command to bring Limelight back up using the new images:

sudo docker-compose up --detach
