Upgrading Redmine 2.4.2 to 3.2 on Ubuntu

Added by Alexandru Elmo over 5 years ago

I have followed the tutorial found here on how to install redmine on a vps which allready have virtualmin installed, but it installed redmine v2.4.2. I have no ideea how to update to redmine v3.2.x, i have almost no knowledge in using linux or installing redmine.

I know there is a tutorial on redmine.org on how to upgrade, but I have no ideea how to do it. How should I start? I don't have anything to backup so I will skip the update part. But after that?

My current redmine information:

  Redmine version                2.4.2.stable
  Ruby version                   1.9.3-p484 (2013-11-22) [x86_64-linux]
  Rails version                  3.2.16
  Environment                    production
  Database adapter               MySQL
  Subversion                     1.8.8
Redmine plugins:

Hi Alexandru,

I am about planing the same upgrade. But we want to stay on the ubuntu managed redmine package (due to security patches provided by the ubuntu maintainer)
We are right now on trusty (http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/redmine)
and we want to switch to (http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/redmine)

So would really appreciate if you could share your experiences along maybe others have already done a upgrade to the "latest" 3.2.x version. What would be the manual way to upgrade from 2.4.2 to 3.2.0?

best wishes

apt-cache show redmine

Above should show you available version for install/upgrade.
apt-get upgrade redmine

Above should upgrade your redmine to the newest available version.
