We first started using octopus deploy on version 2.1. Now it is time to upgrade to the latest stable version.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
First things first: make sure you have a recent backup! Start a manual backup from the Configuration tab of the admin user.
After the backup completes start the MSI and wait for the upgrade to finish. Then head into the Octopus manager and start the Octopus service.
The tentacles can be upgraded from the server. Go to the environments tab and click on Upgrade machines.
Done. This was hands down the easiest upgrade ever.
