How to Upgrade

All Ghost(Pro) users are being automatically updated and will be running Ghost 0.11.1 shortly. You're welcome :)

For people running Ghost on their own servers, you can download Ghost 0.11.1 and then check out the upgrade documentation over on our support site.

Special Upgrade Notes:

If you're on Ghost 0.9.0-0.11.0 and you're using SQLite3, your dates may not have been migrated properly. This release contains a special fix to try to resolve this problem. Therefore, when you run this upgrade, you should use npm start --production to start Ghost the first time, wait for the migration to finish, save the output somewhere safe, and then start Ghost using your normal method.

Currently, the recommended upgrade path is:

  • If you're on 0.4.2-0.7.0, upgrade to 0.7.1
  • If you're on 0.7.1+, upgrade to 0.11.1

The upgrade to 0.11.1 can take time, especially if you have a lot of data. Your blog will run in migration mode whilst the migration is running.

Once the date migrations are working, there will be no further database changes in the LTS version of Ghost.
