Nextcloud 17 to 19

I have a simple NOOB question, although I have googled and browsed this forum extensively.

For upgrading from Nextcloud 17 to 19 - do I have to go to 18 first?

Documentation is unclear on differences between updating within a major version and upgrading to a different major version.

For moving to a new major version, is Manual Upgrade the only route?

THX in adv.

Nextcloud version: 17.07
Operating system and version: Ubuntu 18.04LTS
Apache or nginx version : Apache/2.4.29
PHP version: 7.2.31

Yes. For steps would be 17.0.7 -> 18.0.6 -> 19.0.0

btw. Please modify title: owncloud -> Nextcloud

See as well for general understanding.

Thank you. I used Owncloud for years before being put off by the attitude regarding open source and community support.

So I will be following the path suggested: 17.0.7 -> 18.0.6 -> 19.0.0

OK, I went to 18 first, then 19
SO here’s what I did (just FYI Ubuntu/Debian users) to get from 18 to 19 (17 to 18 is the same with different version numbers):

as web user (web1) from web root:
mv nextcloud oldnextcloud
tar -xjf nextcloud-19.0.0.tar.bz2
cp oldnextcloud/config/config.php nextcloud/config/config.php
cd nextcloud
php occ upgrade


This works? Are you sure?
At least if you use data-dir in nextcloud-dir it can not work.
And what about apps?

Yep, It works
