#1

Hi,

newbie to LSIO here, but i have been running Sonarr/Radarr/Jackett for a few years on my Synology NAS.
I just got a NUC server and i am planning to migrate all those apps from the NAS to the NUC.

I checked the documentation, and know a bit my way around docker containers, but i am wondering if and how self-updating apps work inside LSIO containers ?

Can i have Sonarr/Radarr/Jackett setup with auto-update (which is git based + restart process) inside LSIO container ?
If not, should i just destroy/recreate the container using the latest tag?

Thanks !

We don’t recommend or support updating apps inside containers. You should update the image and recreate the container instead

EDIT: there are a couple of exceptions to the above statement but they usually have specific instructions in their readme about what exactly to do, ie. nextcloud

Thanks, that answers my question then!

I’ll just setup docker compose and get the new version every week.
