Upgrade Next Cloud 15 to recent version

Hello,

I have an NextCloud 15 Server running and I Would like to update it to the most recent version. Is ist possible to just upgrade version for version till up to date or should I completely reinstall the Cloud on a fresh machine? If so, how can I Backup the old data and in best case reimport user tables and content to the new version?

Thank you everyone!

Yes. And that’s the only supported approach.

You may want to review the overview section on upgrades:
https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/latest/admin_manual/maintenance/upgrade.html

Main things:

  • upgrade from the last published maintenance release in v15
  • make sure migrations run before doing each major jump

If you’re lacking backups, make sure to address that first, however.

Take care to install the corresponding PHP previous to the Nextcloud version, which needs a higher version.
