Managing your deployment

Managing the database

You are responsible for backing up the database regularly. Cobrowse will not do this automatically in any way. See the MongoDB docs for recommendations on backup strategies. MongoDB Atlas can be configured to do this automatically.

New releases

To be notified when a new release is available (for any deployment type), please subscribe to this repo:
Changelog notes for all releases are available: Image updates usually contain security patches.

Upgrading Cobrowse

The config directory created by our command line utility is a git repo. You can update to the latest version by doing:
git pull upstream stable
Once you have done that, you can update your deployment via Terraform or Docker Compose as in the initial deployment.

Dedicated staging instance

We recommend self-hosting a separate staging instance of our software to develop against and also to test new releases before moving to production. Please contact us if you are interested.
