Hi Alex,

Yes, it is possible to update from Mattermost version 7.5.1 to the latest version 8.1.2. However, it’s important to follow the proper upgrade process to ensure a smooth transition. Here’s a general outline of the steps involved:

  1. Before upgrading, make sure you have a backup of your Mattermost instance and its database. This will allow you to roll back if any issues occur.
  2. Review the release notes for each version between 7.5.1 and 8.1.2. Pay special attention to any upgrade considerations or breaking changes that may impact your instance.
  3. Test the upgrade process in a non-production environment to identify and address any potential issues specific to your setup.
  4. Upgrade to intermediate versions first. In this case, you’ll need to upgrade to version 8.0.6 before proceeding to 8.1.2. Follow the upgrade guide for each version, which includes step-by-step instructions and any necessary commands.
  5. As you upgrade, make sure to follow any database schema updates or migration steps mentioned in the release notes or upgrade guide.
  6. After completing the upgrade, thoroughly test your Mattermost instance to ensure all functionalities are working as expected.

It’s worth noting that the upgrade process may vary depending on your specific configuration or customizations. If you encounter any issues or need further assistance during the upgrade, feel free to ask for help from the Mattermost community or support channels.
