How to upgrade from 1.0.9 to 1.0.13

Now when I run zcashd, it gives me the following message:

Error: this version has been deprecated as of block height 193076. You should upgrade to the latest version of Zcash. to disable deprecation for this version, set -disabledeprecation=1.0.9


  1. if I want to continue to use this version, should I add set -disabledeprecation=1.0.9 in conf file?
  2. I see people saying that to upgrade, just stop node and restart. But it does not work for me. Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance,

You need to do more than just stop the node and restart it. You have to actually pull the updated files from the repository. Someone else asked this question as well, here you go:

Thanks, that is what I thought.

The only concern is that I have to delete the old files including the wallet data. I want to be cautious…
