Upgrade to 26.0.2 and php8.1 vs php8.2

I recently upgraded my server from Fedora 37 to Fedora 38 and I did not realize at the time that as part of that upgrade php was upgrade to php8.2 needless to say it broke my Nextcloud install that was running v25.

As a temp measure, I installed php8.1 so now Nextcloud is currently running with php8.1 while the other three web applications are running with php8.2.

My question, as Nextcloud 26.0.2 is now released which I understand supports php8.2 is do I do the upgrade while still running php8.1 and then once the install is completed replace php8.1 with php8.2 OR should the upgrade be done utilizing php8.2?


Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): 26.0.1
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Fedora 38
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): Apache 2.4
PHP version (eg, 7.4): 8.1 / 8.2

Do the upgrade with 8.1. With the switch to 8.2 you can even wait until you have updated to 27, that version should then work stable on 8.2

You can of course switch to 8.2 earlier, but keep 8.1 handy if there are apps that don’t quite get along with it yet.
