This documentation section is for existing nodes migrating to
cosmovisor. For new node installations please
see the Install Cosmovisor and Sync using statesync
Unlike previous upgrades, future upgrades of the FUND Mainchain should not require the full halt/export state/migrate genesis process. As of Cosmos SDK v0.45.x, network upgrades and state changes can occur in-place. This makes upgrading much simpler for node operators, as it means that they can set up an upgrade well in advance.
Future upgrades will occur via the
x/upgrade module, which will require a Governance proposal to pass. Once passed,
und software will automatically halt at the proposed height and wait for the upgraded binary containing the
required upgrade information.
Whilst it is possible to undertake the upgrade process manually, it can be time consuming. The recommended process for
und binary and upgrades is to implement
The initial process of migrating to using
cosmovisr for handling
und takes a little additional configuration, but
once in place, upgrades are much easier for operators to implement.
The following guides are available, covering migrating to
cosmovisr, and configuring the current upgrades:
