I’d like to upgrade Ghost from a quite old version I’m currently running to a more recent one. I’ve tried upgrading about two years ago on my own and ran into troubles. I didn’t seek support back then but am now. Unfortunately, I don’t recall what specifically the troubles I had were.
I think I have two paths forward, based on the details below.
- Upgrade my current setup and upgrade Ghost.
- Spin up a 1click install droplet for Ghost alongside my existing droplet and migrate the data from my current ghost install over, as well as the domain.
I’d prefer to go with option 1 if that’s possible. If so, can you please help me with any guidance you can provide to get me started? How do I determine my current version number? Do I need to do certain jumps from where I’m at to get to the latest or can I go from where I am straight to the latest (seems unlikely)?
What’s your URL?
What version of Ghost are you using?
Uncertain. What file can I look at to determine this? I’ve previously tried upgrading Ghost and set it down for a year or more and am revisiting it. I’m running pre- 0.5.0 as there’s an “upgrade available” for 0.5.0 message when I login.
Digital Ocean droplet (not pre-install/1click install)
Ubuntu 12.04 x64
512 MB Memory
What errors or information do you see in the console?
What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having?
Thank you for your help and guidance in advance.
