Major version upgrade

In order to perform a major database upgrade, you will need to stop database replication so you can perform the necessary upgrade and restart your database.

Steps to do major version upgrades w/o data loss:

  1. Schedule an application downtime and pause your application.
  2. Check that Artie is no longer processing any data from our Analytics portal and pause your Artie deployment.
  3. Perform the database upgrade and restart your database server.
  4. Resume your Artie deployment.
  5. Resume your application.

Minor version upgrade

Minor version upgrades do not require stopping database replication. This should be automatically handled by your database provider and applied during your maintenance window.
