Upgrade from oc 7.0 for beginner or rather complete takedown?

Please help us by providing the following info. Before posting please also check the pinned "Known issues" threads and make sure that you're running the latest available version for your oC release: https://owncloud.org/changelog/

Hi I am still at version 7.0 and need to upgrade, this seems complicated and I did not find the right information. Can someone help me? Should I take the thing down and install newest, because I did not use oc very much until now. Thanks Andrea

you would need to do the following upgrade path:

your 7.0.x -> latest 7.0.x -> latest 8.0.x -> latest 8.1.x -> latest 8.2.x -> latest 9.0.x -> latest 9.1.x


  1. Deleting all files and folders except /data/ and /config/
  2. Extracting the release files into your oC install folder
  3. Running ./occ upgrade on the command line
  4. Repeat previous steps for each major release

Thanks, but where do I find the folder structure, I am logged in as admin and find on that page: Updater, Update center (can I use this). I try to attach a screenshot to the original post. I think I am completely wrong here...

You can't use the updater app for such an old version as its only really useable since around oC 9.0.

Instead you need to do the manual upgrades as explained in [1] and by following the steps explained above.
