Gitlab update to the latest version 11.5 from 10.*


#1

I am not able to find suitable link or steps for updating to the latest version.
I would like to upgrade to the 11.5v from 10.6 on debian system.

can anyone help me with that

This should have the caveats for upgrading: https://docs.gitlab.com/omnibus/update/README.html
We initially installed on a 10.x version and have upgraded to the latest without (m)any problems so far. At least no major issues (EE version)

oh nice then i have to follow the below steps


curl -s https://packages.gitlab.com/install/repositories/gitlab/gitlab-ce/script.deb.sh | sudo bash
sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce=11.5.6-ce.0

can i also perfrom the installation like this or just use this  apt-get install gitlab-ee

#4

can i perofrm the installation as below?

curl -s https://packages.gitlab.com/install/repositories/gitlab/gitlab-ce/script.deb.sh | sudo bash
sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce=11.5.6-ce.0

The latest version is 11.6.3, not 11.5.6.

I won’t recommend doing anything of the form curl | sh, download the script, read what it does, determine if that’s a good fit for your system and then either run it, or do something with the same effect that makes more sense in your case.

Earlier i used the same procedure to update the gitlab from 9.x to 10.x, So i thought the same can be applied for upgrade.
