I’ve a GitLab installation on Debian 10. Today I tested the installation of the newest version for security updates on a test server. After this I can’t restore the backups.
gitlab-backup restore BACKUP=1594153385_2020_07_07_13.1.2-ee
Unpacking backup … done
GitLab version mismatch:
Your current GitLab version (13.2.3-ee) differs from the GitLab version in the backup!
Please switch to the following version and try again:
What is the solution for this? In the web I only found the information that a backup can installed only in the same version. But a software update is a normaly use case. And when this is failed or the data not OK after this, I must restore an old backup.
At the moment I can’t update the GitLab on the production server. That is not so good.
Thanks for our help,
