GitLab Upgrade from 6.9.2 to 8.2 running on a RHEL 6.6 Production server

Hi All

I am given a task for upgrading a GitLab server from 6.9.2 to 8.2 running on a RHEL 6.6 Production server.
First i wanted to do it on a test server, so I replicate the same on the production server.
I have setup a GitLab 6.9.2 (source method installtion) on RHEL 6.5, took a backup from the production server and restored it on the test server. Can some one guide me to any links or steps to upgrade my Gitlab server from 6.9.2 to 8.2. Thanks in advance.

The upgrade steps can be found here:


  1. 6.9.2->7.14:
  2. 7.1.4->8.0:
  3. 8.0-8.1:
  4. 8.1-8.2:


  1. Change your installation from source to using omnibus
    GitLab official Guide:
    Check this How To guide: Read the comments on the guide first!!!
  2. Run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y
