Upgrade notes

These upgrade notes are specific to Stash 1.0.x. We strongly recommend that you upgrade Stash by following these steps:

1. Stop Stash!

To stop Stash, run the following command in a terminal:

  • Windows:

    <Stash installation directory>\bin\stop-stash.bat
  • Linux and Mac:

    <Stash installation directory>/bin/stop-stash.sh
2. Back up your Stash instance!
  • Back up the Stash home directory. This is where your Stash data is stored. The home directory is specified either in <Stash installation directory>\bin\setenv.bat or in the STASH_HOME environment variable (on Windows).
  • If you are using an external database, back up this database. Follow the directions provided by the database vendor to do this.
3. Download and install Stash as usual

In particular, you must redefine the Stash home directory, either in <Stash installation directory>\bin\setenv.bat or in the STASH_HOME environment variable (on Windows). See the following for more information:

If you made custom changes to the configuration of your existing Stash installation, for example for the port or context path, you will have to make these changes for the new installation as well.

4. Start Stash
