E.4.2. Migration to Version 18.104.22.168
Depending on your current installation, the upgrade procedure will differ.
If you are running Postgres Pro Standard version 22.214.171.124 or higher, it is enough to install the 126.96.36.199 version into the same directory. However, if you are upgrading from PostgreSQL 9.5.x or lower versions of Postgres Pro Standard, some catalog changes should be applied, so pgpro_upgrade script is required to complete the upgrade:
If you are upgrading your installation from a binary package, and your database is in the default location,
pgpro_upgradeis run automatically, unless you are prompted to run it manually.
If you compiled Postgres Pro from source code or created your database in a non-default location, you must run
pgpro_upgrade manually, you must stop the
postgres service. The script must be run on behalf of the user owning the database (typically postgres). Running
pgpro_upgrade as root will result in an error. For details, see pgpro_upgrade.
To migrate to this version from vanilla PostgreSQL 9.5.4 or lower, perform a dump/restore using pg_dumpall.
