How do i upgrade a helm chart (bitnami/wordpress) that is installed with a one-click app on Kubernetes?
I want to upgrade the Helm Chart bitnami/wordpress on my DO live Kubernetes pod in the namespace “wordpress”, where the bitnami/wordpress chart is deployed. Because it installs version Helm Chart 184.108.40.206.
I’ve installed WordPress on Kubernetes with the 1-click install and everything is working fine. I can access my WordPress url via the loadbalancer, kubectl & doctl are able to communicate with the live Kubernetes cluster. So, I’ve installed helm v3.1.2. on my local machine (MacOs) and add the bitnami repo. When i enter: helm search repo, i get the list of repositories.
But, when i try to install the chart:
helm install --namespace wordpress wordpress bitnami/wordpress
Error: rendered manifests contain a resource that already exists. Unable to continue with install: existing resource conflict: namespace: wordpress, name: wordpress-mariadb, existing_kind: /v1, Kind=Secret, new_kind: /v1, Kind=Secret
And when i try to upgrade the chart:
helm upgrade --namespace wordpress wordpress bitnami/wordpress
Error: UPGRADE FAILED: "wordpress" has no deployed releases
How can i upgrade the standard Wordpress helm chart on my live DO Kubernetes pod? / Sync the charts that are deployed live, with my local machine?
