I’m currently running Mattermost 5.12.0 on a Debian 8 server. I’m looking for a migration path to the current version Mattermost 5.27.0 on a Debian 10 server.
I’ve read the migration guide, which indicates both servers must be running the same database version. This is not possible of course between Debian 8 and 10. As well, I can’t simply upgrade Mattermost in-place on the Debian 8 server to 5.27.0 because it requires MySQL 5.6+, and Debian 8 tops out at 5.5.
So I’m at a loss as to how I can get my installation up to the latest version on a new server. Any thoughts?
