Hi I am in the process of upgrading gitlab but i want to do the upgrade as a test on a vm. I have installed the same version of gitlab on this vm and have backed up the relevant files from our live server. Now I am trying to restore to this server using the command below and I get an error. Is it something i am missing?
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:restore BACKUP=1612443980_2021_02_04
