How do I update Meilisearch?

The easy way

Everytime you restart Bar Assistant container the cocktail and ingredient data gets synced with Meilisearch. So the easiest way to update the Meilisearch is to delete the container and the related volume, and create a new one.

# Stop the container
$ docker compose stop meilisearch
# Remove the container and related volume, please check if volume is deleted
$ docker compose rm meilisearch -v
# Pull new images
$ docker compose pull
# Restart the stack
$ docker compose restart

Update your docker-compose.yml file with new Meilisearch version, and run the stack.

$ docker compose up -d

The "proper" way
