Updating Paperless

You can use the Paperless to also update to the latest versions as they are released. There are no auto updates so you will have to keep your eyes open for announcements.

To run an update, simply follow the same procedure as we did to install Paperless. However, this time, it should complete relatively quickly.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
