Hi there, I’ve got a question on upgrading a QuestDB server. I’m using the docker deployment and with a container that has mapped
/root/.questdb/db
to a docker volume. I’m currently running 6.4.2 and would like to get to latest (6.5.4) for all the juicy new features. Are there any migration steps to take, or is the data forward compatible? Can I just stop the current container and spin up a new one with the latest image and point it to the existing docker volume?

You better to take a backup / snapshot just in case. Data format is compatible

Hi it seems that the steps you mentioned are right - we also have a section on upgrading Docker with links to backup - https://questdb.io/docs/get-started/docker/#upgrade-questdb-version
