Migration Owncloud 7.0.4 to Nextcloud

Hello everyone,

I’v read numerous topics and threads on the web about how to migrate from owncloud 9 (or sometimes 8 ) to Nextcloud.
My problem is: to install Owncloud on my Raspbian, I used the package manager which bundles a 7.0.4 version of Owncloud.

Is there a procedure to migrate from that old version to a recent version of Nextcloud ?
If not, can someone give me advice about the way to achieve a migration of the data, configuration, passwords etc ? My priority (of course) is to loose no data or user configuration.

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,

You first need to upgrade to ownCloud 8.2 (or 9.0).

In order to do this you upgrade major version to major version:

  1. upgrade to 8.0.a
  2. upgrade to 8.1.b
  3. upgrade to 8.2.c

Where a, b and c are as high as possible.
After that you should be able to upgrade to Nextcloud 9

But remember. Make a backup of your data and database.


First of all, thank you for answering so fast.

OK for that solution, I’ll try it and keep you up about this.

Best regards,
