A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Consul documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
This document is intended to help users who find themselves many versions behind to upgrade safely.
Our recommended upgrade path is to move through the following sequence of versions:
- 0.8.5 (final 0.8.x)
- 1.2.4 (final 1.2.x)
- 1.6.10 (final 1.6.x)
- 1.8.19 (final 1.8.x)
- Latest 1.10.x
- Latest 1.12.x
- Latest 1.13.x (at least 1.13.1)
To get instructions for your upgrade, follow the instructions given below for your currently installed release series until you are on the latest current version. The upgrade guides will mention notable changes and link to relevant changelogs – we recommend reviewing the changelog for versions between the one you are on and the one you are upgrading to at each step to familiarize yourself with changes.
Select your currently installed release series:
- 1.12.x: work upwards from 1.13 upgrade notes
- 1.11.x: work upwards from 1.12 upgrade notes
- 1.10.x: work upwards from 1.11 upgrade notes
If you are using <= 0.7.x, please contact support for assistance:
