How to upgrade Phabricator

In this article, I will give an example of a Phabricator update.

First of all, we will make a backup copy.
Let’s say Phabricator is installed in the directory /home/phd/ and the user phd is created, then we switch to the user:

su phd

Make sure that a stable branch is used:

cd /home/phd/arcanist/
git checkout stable
cd /home/phd/libphutil/
git checkout stable
cd /home/phd/phabricator/
git checkout stable

Stop the process:

/home/phd/phabricator/bin/phd stop

Update files:

cd /home/phd/libphutil/
git pull
cd /home/phd/arcanist/
git pull
cd /home/phd/phabricator/
git pull

Update the database:

/home/phd/phabricator/bin/storage upgrade

Now you can start the process:

/home/phd/phabricator/bin/phd start

And restart the web server:

sudo service apache2 restart
