Upgrade form 9.1.6.1 to lastest Nextcloud Version

oc_migration_issue

#1

Hello,

I’ve an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Linux with Nextcloud version 9.1.6.1. I would like to update to a new Ubuntu 18.04 LTS VM with the lastest Nextcloud Version.

Because of the fact that updates between multiple major versions are unsupported, I try to update step by step from version 9 to 10, from 10 to 11 and so on.

But I run into the problem “This version of Nextcloud is not compatible with PHP 7.2”.

Any Idea how to proceed?

Regards
jb

Hi,

You probably need to install a old version of PHP.

Nextcloud version 9.1.6.1 is actually version 10.0.6.
So no need to upgrade from Nextcloud 9 to 10
:wink:

You can check it yourself with requesting
http(s)://your.nextcloud.url/status.php

I just did this today by doing the backup/restore process to get the database, config, and data to the new server (FreeBSD 11.2). I then manually unzipped NC 11 over the top of NC10, version 9.1.6.1, and ran https://server/updater/index.php. I had PHP 7.1. I don’t know if PHP 7.2 is too new for NC 11.

I then just walked it forward via the Admin web UI until I ended up on NC 15.
