Docspell Documentation

Downgrading is currently not supported!

Note, it is not safe to install a previous version, because the database will not be compatible. Therefore, it is recommended to take a backup of the database before upgrading.

Should something not work out as expected, you need to restore the backup and then go back to the previous version.


The default docker-compose.yml file points to images using the -LATEST tag. You need to edit this file and replace -LATEST with the concrete version, like -v0.20.0.

Then run the three steps as when upgrading:

$ docker-compose down
$ docker-compose pull
$ docker-compose up --force-recreate --build -d

ZIP / Deb Files🔗

Simply download a concrete version and re-install it using your package manager or unpack the zip file.


When using the provided nix setup, the currentPkg always points to the latest version. But most other versions are also provided and can be chosen from:

# …
       docspell = callPackage (docspell.pkg docspell.cfg.v0_20_0) {};
# …
