Cloudron Updates

Cloudron checks periodically and applies any platform updates automatically.

Cloudron always takes a complete backup of the platform data and all apps before applying an update. Should the backup creation fail, the update will not be performed.

Updates are GPG signed for security.

It is always recommended to review the official Cloudron Changelog for a list of changes made in each version.

App updates

Cloudron Apps are installed from the App Store. Cloudron checks the App Store for updates periodically and updates them based on the update settings.

Cloudron always takes a backup of an app before performing an update. Should the backup creation fail, the update will not be applied. If an update fails or the updated app misbehaves, the Cloudron administrator can rollback from a backup.

Updates can be disabled on a per app level from the Updates section:

When app updates are disabled or an update is pending, an update indicator is shown:

Update schedule

The update schedule can be set in the Updates section in the Settings menu:

To disable updates entirely, select Update manually. When automatic updates are disabled, the Cloudron administrators will get an email notification as and when updates are available. Updates can then be applied by clicking the update button.


To rollback an app update, simply restore from a backup.

To rollback a Cloudron update, it can be restored from the backup.

Canceled Subscription

When you cancel the subscription, the Cloudron and installed apps stop receiving updates. The server and the apps will continue to run forever. The subscription may be renewed at any time (we may contact you if we notice that you regularly cancel and renew your subscription).
