Issue while upgrading !!

NodeBB Development
  • #1


    I am trying to upgrade my nodebb system from the 1.11 version to 1.17. Problem is that we have made changes in the core because of customized functionality. Now we are getting challenges while upgrading. Is there any process that is a direct method to upgrade from the 1.11 to 1.17 version? or we have to upgrade its version by version by keeping all customize functionality we have already implemented.

    Please provide suggestions on this.

    Thanks & Regards

    @rajeev2189 you don't have to upgrade version by version.

    I'd recommend you do something like this:

    git stash
    git fetch
    git checkout v1.17.x
    git stash apply # merge your code back on
    ./nodebb upgrade

    @rajeev2189 ... but since:

    1. You already tried the big jump and failed
    2. You are also using some customized stuff

    I'd suggest going version by version until you hit something that breaks. Then examine breaking changes logs and such for that version.

    Edit: Hmmm... Rereading your OP:

    ...challenges while upgrading.

    Maybe I misinterpreted this and you have not actually already tried to update? 🤔

    In which case, if not, follow pitaj's recipe above.
