teamcity external database upgrade


I hace teamcity 4.5.5 installed on production using an external MS SQL database.

We were testing teamcity 6 on a dev server and it's not using an external database. We are finally getting ready to upgrade the production version to 6, but we need to make sure that the build history and configurations are preserved after we upgrade. So we made a backup of the current production database of version 4.5.5 and need to upgrade it to version 6 so we can test it with the new version. Once again I am only speaking of the database here. How can this be accomplished? I appreciated any help.

Hi Oleg

Build history is stored in data directory, not in SQL database, so you'll need to copy both parts.
See detailed instructions at Create a copy of TeamCity server with all data and Upgrade pages.
