Upgrading ExaCheck depends on the initial installation method.

Upgrade Process

If ExaCheck has been installed using pip (from PyPi or from source), the package can be upgraded by running the install command again with the --upgrade flag.

For the latest PyPi package:

python3 -m pip install exacheck --upgrade

If using the Docker image and the tag is set to latest (the default in the sample), simply pull and start:

docker compose pull
docker compose start

Upgrade Notes

Every effort is made to keep the configuration file between releases compatible. From time to time there may be some configuration schema changes that must be made to add additional features or change how existing features work; these changes will be listed here.


When upgrading to 0.0.5, the monitoring_interval and live_reload options have been migrated under the exacheck configuration key.
