Need upgrade SonarQube server 6.7 to a newer version


I need upgrade a live sonarqube server 6.7 (mysql based) to 8.4.
Being MySQL no more supported in the target version, assume I will need to migrate to MSSQL first. Is it right?
what’s the correct procedure? migrate first with mysql migration tool and then upgrade to Sonarqube 8.4?



Hello Fabio,

Yes, since you already seem to know about the mysql migration tool, use that to migrate your 6.7 data. Then you’ll need to upgrade the target database. As covered in our upgrade docs, you’ll need to upgrade to the next LTS release (7.9) as an intermediary step to 8.4 if that’s your goal.
