Updating the RMM (Docker)

Updating to the latest RMM version


You have a backup, right? RIGHT?!

Tactical RMM updates the docker images on every release and should be available within a few minutes.

SSH into your server as a root user and run the below commands:

cd [dir/with/compose/file]
mv docker-compose.yml docker-compose.yml.old
sudo docker-compose pull
sudo docker-compose down
sudo docker-compose up -d --remove-orphans

Keeping your Let's Encrypt certificate up to date

To renew your Let's Encrypt wildcard cert, run the following command, replacing with your domain and with your email:

sudo certbot certonly --manual -d * --agree-tos --no-bootstrap --manual-public-ip-logging-ok --preferred-challenges dns -m --no-eff-email

Verify the domain with the TXT record. Once issued, run the below commands to base64 encode the certificates and add them to the .env file.

echo "CERT_PUB_KEY=$(sudo base64 -w 0 /etc/letsencrypt/live/${rootdomain}/fullchain.pem)" >> .env
echo "CERT_PRIV_KEY=$(sudo base64 -w 0 /etc/letsencrypt/live/${rootdomain}/privkey.pem)" >> .env


You must remove the old and any duplicate entries for CERT_PUB_KEY and CERT_PRIV_KEY in the .env file.

Now run sudo docker-compose up -d restart and the new certificate will be in effect.
