Sourcegraph is a web-based, self-hosted code search and navigation tool for developers, used by Uber, Lyft, Yelp, and more.
It takes less than 5 minutes to run and install Sourcegraph using Docker:
docker run -d --publish 7080:7080 --publish 127.0.0.1:3370:3370 --rm --volume ~/.sourcegraph/config:/etc/sourcegraph --volume ~/.sourcegraph/data:/var/opt/sourcegraph sourcegraph/server:3.27.4
Once the server is ready (logo is displayed in the terminal), navigate to the hostname or IP address on port
7080. Create the admin account, then you’ll be guided through setting up Sourcegraph for code searching and navigation.
For next steps and further configuration options, visit the site administration documentation.
All you need to do to upgrade Sourcegraph is to restart your Docker server with a new image tag.
We actively maintain the two most recent monthly releases of Sourcegraph.
Upgrades should happen across consecutive minor versions of Sourcegraph. For example, if you are running Sourcegraph 3.1 and want to upgrade to 3.3, you should upgrade to 3.2 and then 3.3.
The Docker server image tags follow SemVer semantics, so version
3.27.4can be found at
sourcegraph/server:3.27.4. You can see the full list of tags on our Docker Hub page.
