So we have been running 8.12.7-ce for quite a while but there are some features in the newer versions we’d like to try out.
The thing is, whenever i do
sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce
root@server:~# apt-get install gitlab-ce Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done gitlab-ce is already the newest version (8.12.7-ce.0). 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 96 not to upgrade.
I’m hoping someone can help point me in the right direction ( I assume i just need to add a apt-source in?
We have quite a few repositories on the instance so we are a little cautious about the upgrade.
I have done a full backup of
/var/opt/gitlab/ so in the event of things going wrong, could I simple restore the backup?
