We urge you to back up your database before the upgrade to a new version, since YouTrack does not provide backward database compatibility, and thus you will not be able to revert to a previous version with the database that was processed during the upgrade! You will be able to roll back to the previous YouTrack version only with the pre-upgrade database backup!

Upgrading to YouTrack 4.x from YouTrack 2.x

YouTrack 4.0 does not support direct upgrade from YouTrack 2.x, because of database format changes made in YouTrack 3.x!
To upgrade from YouTrack 2.x, you need to convert your database and upgrade to YouTrack 3.x, and only then you can upgrade to YouTrack 4.0.

To upgrade YouTrack 2.x to YouTrack 4.0:

  1. Download latest YouTrack 3.x build from the YouTrack Release Downloads Archive
  2. Back up your 2.x database
  3. Stop YouTrack server
  4. Convert the 2.x database
  5. Run the YouTrack 3.x build with the converted database
  6. Back up the YouTrack 3.x database
  7. Stop YouTrack server
  8. Deploy the new YouTrack 4.0 build
  9. Start the server
