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 https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver059/upgrade-bitbucket-server-from-an-archive-file-949255740.html ) 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 ?
