ShellHub cuts regular releases for Community Edition to keep it as close to ShellHub Cloud as possible.

We actively develop ShellHub to add new features and remove bugs, and encourage you to ensure your ShellHub self-hosted instance is using the most up-to-date version.

Upgrading to a newer version


  1. Change to ShellHub project dir

  2. Stop the instance: make stop

  3. Fetch remote changes: git remote update origin

  4. Checkout the latest stable release: git checkout v0.15.0
  5. Bring up the instance: make start


Make sure to backup all MongoDB data files before proceeding with upgrade.

This section describes how to upgrade from the ShellHub Community Edition to the ShellHub Enterprise.
