I'm currently working on the most outdated Stash version and i really wish to migrate to the last one (v 3.1.3).
I try to install the Backup Client but i can't see it from plugin manager inside Stash. After I try this, I read on the docs that it is supported only from v2.8.
I have two tasks to perform:
* first, I need to do backup for the current situation;
* second, I really have the need to move to the latest version.
I am very unsure what it is the best flow of action due to my environment.
It is best to reinstall the new Stash and reimport every repositories in the new one?
Or a manual backup (with stash home dir and sql server stash db instance) is a better way to approach?
Thank you for your time.
The latter option (manual backup) is the way to go. To backup a version of Stash prior to v2.8, you'll need to shut down Stash and make a backup copy of the STASH_HOME directory and your external database. You can then install the new version of Stash to a new directory, point the setenv.sh or setenv.bat file at your existing STASH_HOME directory and then start Stash.
Stash will perform all of the necessary upgrades to your data on startup for you. If you need to rollback for some reason, you can simply re-instate your backup copies of STASH_HOME and the DB and start your old version of Stash again.
Thank for your help, Tim.
I'm going to try what you suggest, but I have another question.
Just for being sure everything will go fine until the end, I have installed on a different server a new Stash 3.1.3 with an evaluation license. I'll follow your suggestion for moving out all the repositories.
Do you think I need some additional steps to go through this?
There's no good way to "merge" two Stash instances, so I'd avoid having people use the new instance you've stood up until you've migrated over from the old one.
If you're migrating to a new server you can simply:
I am trying to stash migration of 2.5.1 to 3.4.1 on a new server.
This did not work for me, I am getting an Spring Mvc problem without anything displaying in the log file. And it is not a permission problem I make sure I assigned the chown -R atlstash:atlstash in my 2.5.1 repo.
I then tried the following but having issue with:
1. in server 2.5.1:
2. in server 3.4.1:
install stash and try to point to that db
This steps does not work.
