I've setup a GrandNode droplet on DigitalOcean (via this link https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/grandnode) and I have a question as to how to update the source code. I've connected both through FTP and SSH and have tried to upload the build of GrandNode from GitHub but when I update the DLLs Nginx keeps giving a 500 error message. I've looked online for a solution but seem to have hit a wall.

What's a good workflow to update GrandNode in my Digital Ocean droplet? For other .Net apps I can usually drop in the DLLs and restart the server, but this doesn't seem to be the case with GrandNode. Any advice to point me in the right direction would be appreciated, thanks!

Hello Isaac,

Thanks a lot for the post. Starting from the beginning. If you have ready and installed GrandNode 4.60 from DigitalOceans' droplet, it's enough to replace the compiled files in /var/aspnetcore/GrandNode folder. Just download the latest stable version from our GitHub - NoSource. When the system finishes the replacement process, please restart the GrandNode service. When you access your store, navigate to yourstore.com/upgrade, and update the database version. It's simple. However, if you want to make an update directly from the source code, let's jump here.

Best regards,
