Updating Webodm ubuntu 20.4

Hello All
Iam running webodm 1.90 on Ubuntu 20.4 under VMware.
At present I’ve noted my windows desktop is on 1.9.1.
How do I update on Ubuntu.

Good question. I would like to know too.

How did you download/install it initially?

Hi here is the way I installed webodm on ubuntu

install webodm......

Run sudo apt-get update
Run sudo apt-get upgrade
Run sudo apt-get install docker-compose
Run sudo apt-get install python3-pip
Run git clone https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/WebODM --config core.autocrlf=input --depth 1
cd WebODM (Linux is case sensitive)
sudo ./webodm.sh start

WebODM has the ability to automatically request and install a SSL certificate via Let’s Encrypt, or you can manually specify your own key/certificate pair.

Setup your DNS record (webodm.myorg.com --> IP of server).
Make sure port 80 and 443 are open.
Run the following:

./webodm.sh restart --ssl --hostname webodm.myorg.com
OR ./webodm.sh down && ./webodm.sh update && ./webodm.sh restart --ssl --hostname hostname.something.com

That’s it! The certificate will automatically renew when needed.
If you want to specify your own key/certificate pair, simply pass the --ssl-key and --ssl-cert option to ./webodm.sh. See ./webodm.sh --help for more information.
Note! You cannot pass an IP address to the hostname parameter! You need a DNS record setup.

If you get a docker issue try this…

Have you tried adding your user to the docker group?
$ sudo apt update
$ docker-compose --version
$ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
$ newgrp docker

Test your docker before running WebODM:

$ docker run hello-world

and then just run WebODM again

$ cd WebODM
$ ./webodm.sh start

Hi all no replays but finally got there solution below

cd WebODM
sudo ./webodm.sh update

you will have to re run
sudo ./webodm.sh restart --ssl --hostname webodm.myorg.com

I had a issue with CRSF on firefox trying to access on port 8000 you need to run the ssl re run.
you can access in private mode or chrome on port8000
