There is a big version jump in the Elasticsearch container (5.x to 7.x). For this reason a re-creation of the index is necessary. Normally the upgrade does not require any additional steps, but in individual cases problems may occur. More information can be found in section Elasticsearch 7.

Starting with version 5.76 (scheduled for release on 18.11.2020) easydb will only start with the newer PostgreSQL version 11. This cut is necessary to be able to use new features of PostgreSQL without endangering old installations. In addition, the old PostgreSQL version does not get security updates anymore. More information in the PostgreSQL 11 section.

Elasticsearch 7

The update comes with Elasticsearch 7, normally there should be no problems, except if

  "store" : {
    "throttle" : {
      "type" : "merge",
      "max_bytes_per_sec" : "50mb
    }
  },

Typically this is found in the file /srv/easydb/config/elastic_index_template.json.

    "mappings" : { },

After removing this line the template must be transferred to Elasticsearch:

curl -H 'content-type: application/json' -XPOST $ES_URL/_template/default -d@elastic_index_template.json

Replace ‘$ES_URL’ with for example http://localhost:9200 or wherever your Elasticsearch can be reached. Check the accessibility e.g. with the harmless listing of the indexes: curl http://localhost:9200/_cat/indices

config:
  "http.max_content_length": "200mb
discovery-type: zen
config:
  "cluster.initial_master_nodes" [ "n1.example.com", "n2.example.com" ]

If these corrections are not sufficient, a look into the log of the Elasticsearch container (`docker logs easydb-elasticsearch') is necessary, the errors there should give hints how to proceed with the options used there. In case of doubt, the Elasticsearch documentation should be consulted.

curl -XPUT -H 'Content-Type: application/json' http://localhost:9200/_cluster/settings -d '{"persistent": { "search.max_buckets": 262144 }}'
(http://localhost:9200 is an example address, but in many cases it works locally on the server).

Additionally this should be included in the configuration file: (elasticsearch.yml

config:
  "search.max_buckets": 262144

Postgres 11

PostgreSQL version 11 is available for all customers since early 2020 and can be installed with this guide. Unfortunately the process is not automatic but requires a Linux administrator.

Starting with 5.76 (planned release date: 18.11.2020) the server makes a check on the PostgreSQL version and will not start if it is smaller than 11.
