E.18.2. Migration to Version

A dump/restore is not required for those running

However, if you are upgrading from a version earlier than or vanilla PostgreSQL 9.5.x, some catalog changes should be applied.

If you use binary packages, and your database is in the default location, this upgrade should be performed automatically. If you've compiled Postgres Pro from source or create your database in non-default location, running initdb manually, you should run pgpro_upgrade script provided in this distribution.

Before running script, you should stop postgres service. Script should be run as user, owning the database (typically postgres) and PGDATA environment variable should be set to the directory where database resides.
