# Updating MeiliSearch

Updating MeiliSearch is a straightforward process, simply get and install the latest binary with your preferred method (see installation above).

Note that all MeiliSearch versions are not compatible with each other, and you may need to re-index your documents. If you get the error Cannot open database, expected MeiliSearch engine version: X.X.X, current engine version Y.Y.Y, delete your database folder (defaults to data.ms), and re-index all your documents.
