### 0. Double-check your Git version

**This notice applies only to /usr/local/bin/git**

If you compiled Git from source on your GitLab server then please double-check
that you are using a version that protects against CVE-2014-9390. For six
months after this vulnerability became known the GitLab installation guide
14 15
still contained instructions that would install the outdated, 'vulnerable' Git
version 2.1.2.

Run the following command to get your current Git version.

```
/usr/local/bin/git --version
```

If you see 'No such file or directory' then you did not install Git according
to the outdated instructions from the GitLab installation guide and you can go
to the next step 'Stop server' below.

If you see a version string then it should be v1.8.5.6, v1.9.5, v2.0.5, v2.1.4,
28 29
v2.2.1 or newer. You can use the [instructions in the GitLab source
installation

```

### 3. Get latest code

```bash
sudo -u git -H git fetch --all
sudo -u git -H git checkout -- db/schema.rb # local changes will be restored automatically
```

For GitLab Community Edition:

```

### 5. Install libs, migrations, etc.

# MySQL installations (note: the line below states '--without ... postgres')
sudo -u git -H bundle install --without development test postgres --deployment

# PostgreSQL installations (note: the line below states '--without ... mysql')

```
git diff origin/7-11-stable:config/gitlab.yml.example origin/7-12-stable:config/gitlab.yml.example
``````

### 7. Start application

    sudo service gitlab start
    sudo service nginx restart

### 8. Check application status

Check if GitLab and its environment are configured correctly:

    sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake gitlab:env:info RAILS_ENV=production

To make sure you didn't miss anything run a more thorough check with:

    sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake gitlab:check RAILS_ENV=production

If all items are green, then congratulations, the upgrade is complete!

## Things went south? Revert to previous version (7.11)

### 1. Revert the code to the previous version
Follow the [upgrade guide from 7.10 to 7.11](7.10-to-7.11.md), except for the database migration
(The backup is already migrated to the previous version)

### 2. Restore from the backup:

```bash
cd /home/git/gitlab
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake gitlab:backup:restore RAILS_ENV=production
```
If you have more than one backup *.tar file(s) please add `BACKUP=timestamp_of_backup` to the command above.
