**Expected outcome:Want to Upgrade to 2.5

Other relevant data:

We recommend upgrading one version at a time, as that is what we test. It may be possible to skip versions but you could run into issues. Follow the upgrade instructions for each version and take note of the upgrade warnings in the manual. Take a backup before you start, and if you’re running Foreman in a VM, take a snapshot after each version upgraded so that in case something goes wrong you don’t need to start over from the beginning.

Hi idrisa,

You can check out my upgrade notes for a very similar upgrade procedure I performed in my environment here: Foreman upgrade 1.24.3 -> 2.3 possible? - #3 by tbrisker
I hope it helps!

Good luck!

Thanks for your prompt response.
Would it be better to upgrade Or it is better to install 2.5 and migrate across the configuration from 1.22.2

I personally would upgrade. I don’t expect odd issues from 1.22 to 2.5 as long as you’re using PostgreSQL already.
