# Upgrading Wings

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

# 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/download/v1.0.0-rc.6/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
