Change from Debian Package to built-in Updater


Nextcloud version: 15.0.8 (via Jurisic repository)
Operating system: Debian 9 (Stretch)
Apache version: 2.4.25
PHP version: 7.3 (via 3rd party repository)

I’m trying to work out a procedure to switch this server from using the Jurisic Debian package to using the built-in updater for upgrades. I’m thinking the procedure would go something like this:

  1. perform backup
  2. remove package
  3. perform manual install via tarball

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Should I manually re-install 15.0.8 before upgrading to 16, or should I go ahead and install 16.0.1?

Thanks in advance.


Yes, in theory this looks good. Make sure to install the stuff at the same location (the data-folder is in some config files and the database). I’d migrate just the same version, if there is a problem, it is much easier to identify. In a second step, I’d upgrade to 16.0.1.
