You will be asked whether the data should be kept or wiped. Choosing wipe will result in all data being purged and the server starting fresh with only demo data. Choosing keep will result in the old data being preserved.

Keep an eye on the job you started. Once it completes with a green ball next to it, the demo should be available shortly (note: it may take up to a few minutes for all the services to reboot on the demo server after the job completes). If the ball is red, it means errors occurred and further administrative action might be required.

After changing the compose file, rebuild the demo as detailed above - it will be upgraded to the latest version.
