thank you for a fantastic cloud server
I am trying to sort out an official method for upgrading + migrating Owncloud on Mageia 5 to Nextcloud on Mageia 6.
Mageia 6 have been in a soon-to-bee released rolling like state for unusually long now but soon really it is out. (i have been using it for soon a year on my production machines)
I am a user and feedbacker on Mageia, and when i installed Owncloud myself - currently 9.0.5 on Mageia 5 - i wrote the Owncloud/Nextcloud wiki page. Now i would like to actualise the upgrading procedure description, and make sure Mageia 5 and 6 have all versions needed;
As you know owncloud/nextcloud upgrades must not skip major (x.x even) versions, and need manual intervention. Therefor, on Mageia we put the new packages in backports repo so they are not automatically upgraded.
As per the most common info, the plan have been to upgrade Owncloud in steps up to 9.0.x on Mageia 5, before the complete system is upgraded to Nextcloud, at version 10. https://wiki.mageia.org/en/OwnCloud#Upgrading
But now i note that https://nextcloud.com/migration/ now do not list Owncloud 9.0 to NExtxloud 10 as a possibl epathe so we should upgrade ownloud one more step, to 9.1, before switching to Nextcloud 10. Is that an error on that page (i cannot see that info anywhere else, and not in this thread either). Is it still OK to go Owncloud 9.0.5 to Nextcloud 10 ?
Time have passed and current Nextcloud version is 11. Optimally that would be the default version on new Mageia 6 installs to. How reliable is an update from Owncloud 9.1.latest to Nextcloud 11?
Are there only problems regarding plugins, and if so, do we have a list or other info?
If we need go via Nextcloud 10, we can put it in “backorts” (really abusing the intention of that repo, but what to do…) and recommend users to first upgrade osncloud on magiea 5, then uinstall it so it do not pull in Nextcloud at system upgrade, upgrade to Mageia 6, then manually install Nextcloud 10 from backports, then upgrade to Nextcloud 11 in core repo. A bit crazy, but…
Any comments or helpful knowledge are welcome.
BTW, on the client side, can settings etc be overtaken from ownCloud client 2.x to current Nextcloud client?
