Best way to approach update from 3.3 to 5.x

Added by Dawid Biskupski 3 months ago


I have redmine 3.3.3.stable.16608 and it's gonna be ancient technology in a while, so I want to upgrade Redmine to the newest stable version. My question is how to do it in a good way.

Should I update it from 3.3 to 4.0, from 4.0 to 4.5 and then from 4.5 to 5.0 or there's another way to do it? The current specification of my Redmine is shown below.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Redmine version 3.3.3.stable.16608
Ruby version 2.3.4-p301 (2017-03-30) [x86_64-linux]
Rails version
Environment production
Database adapter Mysql2
Subversion 1.8.10
Git 2.1.4
Redmine plugins:
issue_charts 1.3.0
localizable 0.4.0
redmine_agile 1.5.3
redmine_checklists 3.1.5
redmine_dmsf 1.5.9
redmine_favorite_projects 2.0.3

First of all you will have to look for alternatives to some currently used plugins...development has been partially stopped!

Personally, I would jump to 4.2.x, so Redmine is safe for now.
The jump to 5.x is currently not possible for me because of a few extensions.
