Hi GitLAB / ALL,
We are currently using gitlab-ce 7.10.0 and its working fine. Backup Restore between same version always works.
We have installed latest gitlab i.e. “gitlab-ce-8.15.4” on different server.
How can we restore backup of gitlab-ce 7.10.0 to gitlab-ce-8.15.4 ?
Whats the best method for doing this ? Purpose is to upgrade gitlab-ce 7.10.0 to gitlab-ce-8.15.4.
Some links ( Upgrading GitLab from 7.x to 8.x ) says that its possible directly.
**"""" Assuming you are on 7.1, direct upgrade from 7.1 to 8.8 or any 8.x might not be successful, earlier people have faced DB migration failing, to avoid this you need to take a few steps Please find them below
Gitlab 7.1 to Gitlab 7.4
Gitlab 7.4 to Gitlab 7.6
Gitlab 7.6 to Gitlab 8.0
Gitlab 8.0 to Gitlab 8.5 (optional , u can skip this step if you like and upgrade from 8.0 to 8.8)
Gitlab 8.5 to Gitlab 8.8 “”"""
