Keywords: SonarQube - Microsoft Azure - How to - Upgrade
Hello, I'm currently using bitnami sonarqube 7.9 image in an azure vm and I would like to upgrade it to version 8.4. So rather than making modification to an existing 7.9 instance that currently in service, I created another dedicated azure vm instance with an 8.4 image to test the migration, its the bitnami sonarqube 8.4 vm image from the azure marketplace. I followed the upgrade instruction provided here, https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/apps/sonarqube/administration/upgrade/#upgrade-sonarqube-and-all-stack-components-recommended and I'm confused about the postgresql database backup referenced on the page. It seems the database backup page describes how to backup the the entire bitnami sonarqube stack and then restoring it, which is effectively replacing an existing sonarqube stack that's I'm trying to upgrade to, which is not what I'm trying to do. I just want to take all existing bitnami sonarqube data and configurations that's in 7.9 instance and carry it over to the 8.4 instance that's in a separate vm.
So in my search for a more reliable way to migrate the database I found this page, https://docs.bitnami.com/virtual-machine/infrastructure/postgresql/administration/backup-restore-postgresql/ do you think the related database backup is valid for my usecase?
Do you have any other instructions or documentations that can help me with what I wanted to do?
