Upgrade docker based Sonarqube 6.7.6-community to 7.9.5-community

Hello Members,

I have a simple question and pardon me if it is silly. We have Sonarqube 6.7.6-community running as a container. We want to upgrade it to 7.9.5-community.
I wanted to ask, whether I can simply directly upgrade from 6.7.6-community to 7.9.5-community? If yes, is it a simple upgrade like changing the tag version in the dockerfile? or does it require any special changes?

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    a. Sonarqube 6.7.6-community
  • what are you trying to achieve
    a. Trying to upgrade from Sonarqube 6.7.6-community to 7.9.5-community
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this
    a. Did not try this yet, wanted to gather more information before beginning the upgrade.


Keeping in mind that we didn’t provide or support a docker image for 6.7.6, the upgrade guide should nonetheless be helpful.


Ok thank you.
