I have an Ubuntu server with gitlab version 7.3.0 (Community edition) which was installed from the omnibus deb package and I know that it’s too old version.
I want to move all data to another server and install the latest version of Gitlab.
I have read a lot of manuals about migrating process and planned step by step moving from one version to another up to latest: backup and restore tar archive, but when made a backup on the first server (tar archive) I have installed the Gitlab version (7.6.2) on another and did:
$ sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:restore BACKUP=<number of backup from tar>
and got the following:
Unpacking backup ... done Gitlab version mismach: Your current GitLab version (7.6.2) differs from the Gitlab version in the backup! Please switch to the following version and try again: version: 7.3.0
Can you tell me what should you I do? What’s the best way to move all data to the server with the latest version of Gitlab?
