porter upgrade

Upgrade an installation


Upgrade an installation.

The first argument is the installation name to upgrade. This defaults to the name of the bundle.

Porter uses the Docker driver as the default runtime for executing a bundle’s invocation image, but an alternate driver may be supplied via ‘–driver/-d’. For example, the ‘debug’ driver may be specified, which simply logs the info given to it and then exits.
