Hi,

I use and old version of Gitea (1.4.3) and I would like to upgrade it to the most recent one available on Webfaction (which, if I am not mistaken, is 1.8.xx at the moment).

How could I do it without risking messing with my existing projects and users?

Thanks!

I believe you have a couple options,

  1. Upgrade in place - https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/upgrade-from-gogs/
  2. Migrate to a new Gitea install - https://community.webfaction.com/questions/21721/migrate-existing-git-web-app-to-gitea
  3. You might also try simply downloading the latest Gitea binary, replace the old one, restart the app

Of course, always backup before proceeding.

Well, I went with option #3 and it was easier than I thought.

All I had to do was to rename the old gitea file, just in case, and then do

wget -O gitea https://dl.gitea.io/gitea/1.8.3/gitea-1.8.3-linux-amd64

chmod +x gitea

as per the instructions here: https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/install-from-binary/

Thanks!
