Install & upgrade canaryd

canaryd has no dependencies (except Python) and is currently installed via pip:

sudo pip install canaryd

Once installed you’ll need to either register for Service Canary or add the server to an existing account. This can be done by:

sudo canaryctl init [API_KEY]

Upgrading canaryd

To upgrade canaryd to the latest version, simply:

sudo pip install canaryd -U

After this you’ll need to restart the canaryd service. On modern systems this is normally managed by systemd, and can be restarted like so:

sudo systemctl restart canaryd.service
