Two quick questions about Bitbucket server release upgrade


we are planning the upgrade of Bitbucket server release on a test server of ours: its current release is Stash v3.0.4 and we want to updrage it to Bitbucket 5.9.1.


- Do we have to do an intermediate release upgrade (for example to 4.xx) or can we perform a direct migration (following )  from 3.0.4 to 5.9.1?


- On this Test server we have a “Bitbucket (Server) 10 Users: Starter License” whose support and updates is ended: do we have to renew this license before executing the release upgarde ?


Best regards

Hi David,

Bitbucket Server 5.9 has already reached end-of-life status - is there any reason why you don't just upgrade straight to version 7?

Hi Christian,

I work in a corporate where they are still on Bitbucket 5.9 and our department has to be upgrade our old release but keeping it aligned with the rest of the company tools releases.

Hi @David , 


I don't remember having to do intermediate upgrades for Bitbucket so I think you're fine : the biggest change is that most configuration is now done in rather than server.xml, you can view the documentation to migrate it here :

Regarding the license : you will need to renew it before doing the upgrade


Let me know if this helps,
