Update n8n data/workflows

Hi there,

I want to update my Docker n8n and read the instructions.

I must have overlooked something, but can’t find whether and how the data/workflows are migrated to the new container.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The data is mounted into Docker from your local hard drive (where it is persisted). Meaning it will do exactly the same after the upgrade and so no additional steps are required. Obviously assuming you did follow one of our guides where that is always the case.
If you did not and the data is only present in Docker (which would be very bad) then upgrading would be much more complicated and painful.

@jan thanks! And how does this work with the App?

What do you mean by App? n8n Desktop? If that is what you mean, then it is exactly the same. Noting to worry about and you can simply follow the steps here.
