### 2. Update Ruby

If you are still using Ruby 1.9.3 or below, you will need to update Ruby.
You can check which version you are running with `ruby -v`.

If you are you running Ruby 2.0.x, you do not need to upgrade ruby, but can consider doing so for performance reasons.

If you are running Ruby 2.1.1 consider upgrading to 2.1.2, because of the high memory usage of Ruby 2.1.1.

Install, update dependencies:

```bash
sudo apt-get install build-essential zlib1g-dev libyaml-dev libssl-dev libgdbm-dev libreadline-dev libncurses5-dev libffi-dev curl
```

Download and compile Ruby:

```bash
mkdir /tmp/ruby && cd /tmp/ruby
40
curl --location --progress ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/2.1/ruby-2.1.2.tar.gz | tar xz
41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53
cd ruby-2.1.2
./configure --disable-install-rdoc
make
sudo make install
```

Install Bundler:

```bash
sudo gem install bundler --no-ri --no-rdoc
```

### 3. Get latest code
54 55 56 57 58 59

```bash
cd /home/git/gitlab
sudo -u git -H git fetch --all
```

For GitLab Community Edition:
61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73

sudo -u git -H git checkout 7-0-stable
```

OR

### 4. Update gitlab-shell (and its config)
75 76 77 78 79 80 81

```bash
cd /home/git/gitlab-shell
sudo -u git -H git fetch
sudo -u git -H git checkout v1.9.6
```

### 5. Install libs, migrations, etc.
83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97

```bash
cd /home/git/gitlab

# 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')
sudo -u git -H bundle install --without development test mysql --deployment

# Run database migrations

* HTTP setups: Make `/etc/nginx/sites-available/nginx` the same as https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/7-0-stable/lib/support/nginx/gitlab but with your settings.
* HTTPS setups: Make `/etc/nginx/sites-available/nginx-ssl` the same as https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/7-0-stable/lib/support/nginx/gitlab-ssl but with your setting

### 7. Start application
117 118 119 120

    sudo service gitlab start
    sudo service nginx restart

121
### 8. Check application status
122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135

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 upgrade is complete!

## Things went south? Revert to previous version (6.9)

### 1. Revert the code to the previous version
136
Follow the [upgrade guide from 6.8 to 6.9](6.8-to-6.9.md), except for the database migration
137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145
(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.
