Migrating Gitlab from 7.0 to 11.5 steps or instructions required

Hi All,

I am looking for instractions or details to migrate gitlab from 7.10.5 to 11.5.

  1. WOuld it be possible to move to 11.5
  2. What are the sequence of the steps need to follow
  3. How to take a backup of git repositories including the history

That is way off. I beleive you will spend more time on updating than on installing new Gitlab instance.
And migration of the projects more or less impossibile unles you’re migration from/to same versions.
