Update InfluxDB version(open source) from 1.8.4 to 1.8.9 in RHEL

What is the best way to update minor version of InfluxDB 1.8 on RHEL. Is there any update command or we need to uninstall the current version and Install new version.

Hello @Ravi_Agrawal,
I’m not sure.
It depends on your version.

beta → stable

But you definitely can’t go wrong with that.

How did you install?

Hi @Anaisdg

Thanks for the reply,
I had to update InfluxDB minor version from 1.8.4 to 1.8.9 and I have been able to successfully do it following the below steps. As I did not find a process for the minor update on InfluxDB pages, noting down the steps for others benefit.

  1. Remove InfluxDB 1.8.4 with command below:
    sudo yum remove influxdb
  2. Download rpm package for InfluxDB v1.8.9 with command below:
    wget https://dl.influxdata.com/influxdb/releases/influxdb-1.8.9.x86_64.rpm
  3. Install InfluxDB v1.8.9 with command below:
    sudo yum install influxdb-1.8.9.x86_64.rpm
  4. Check InfluxDB version after Upgrade
    influx -version
