# Upgrading Wings

Upgrading Wings is a painless process and should take less than a minute to complete.

# Wings Version Requirements

Each version of Pterodactyl Panel also has a corresponding minimum version of Wings that is required for it to run. Please see the chart below for how these versions line up. In most cases your base Wings version should match that of your Panel.

Panel Version Wings Version Supported
1.0.x 1.0.x
1.1.x 1.1.x
1.2.x 1.2.x
1.3.x 1.3.x

# Download Updated Binary

First, download the updated wings binary into /usr/local/bin.

curl -L -o /usr/local/bin/wings https://github.com/pterodactyl/wings/releases/latest/download/wings_linux_amd64
chmod u+x /usr/local/bin/wings

# Restart Process

Finally, restart the wings process. Your running servers will not be affected and any open connections to the instance will re-connect automatically.

systemctl restart wings
