How to upgrade from 8.7 to 8.9

Im currently on Community Edition Version 8.7.1 (build 42226).
How to upgrade to 8.9 latest release and is there an easy yum upgrade option? or a script to upgrade from these pretty close releases.


Thanks, I figured it out by myself.

  1. Download and unzip in /opt
  2. Stop sonarqube service
  3. chown -R sonar:sonar sonarqube-
  4. Remove the sonarqube symlink /opt/sonarqube
  5. Create the symlink for sonarqube- as ‘sonarqube’ in /opt and chown it to ‘sonar’ user.
  6. Update /etc/systemd/system/sonarqube.service with the new jar location to start the application
  7. Update the sonarqube/conf/ file for jdbc username, password, url
  8. Finally, restart postgresql-12 and sonarqube service
  9. And goto, http://yourSonarQubeServerURL/setup to reanalyze the projects / load the data from DB (Upgrade the Server | SonarQube Docs)
