I have been tasked with updating sonarqube to the latest version and have been following the upgrade steps listed in the Demo video (Webinar | Ace Your SonarQube Upgrade | Thank You Page | Sonar) as we are trying to update from version 188.8.131.52237 to 8.9 LTS and so on to the latest version. This is a virtualized deployment in VMware vSphere on CentOS 7 and our Java version is OpenJDK version “11.0.6” 2020-01-14 LTS.
My issue right now is that I attempt to stop the 8.1 service via ./sonar.sh stop command from the 8.1 directory, but it states this service is not started. I can only stop the sonarqube service with the systemctl stop sonarqube command. I then try to start the 8.9 instance using the ./soanr.sh start command but it doesn’t work. I did not build this instance so I am not sure what method and files structure sonarqube was deployed into. As far as I can tell, SonarQube is installed in /opt/sonarqube-184.108.40.206237 directory.
What am I missing? Why won’t the new 8.9 LTS version overtake the older 8.1 version?
Any assistance would be appreciated.
