You need to understand how software packages are being upgraded. In
Foreman, we do major and minor releases. Usually you want to stay on
particular version as long as possible and only upgrade minor versions
(e.g. 1.11.X). You do this by regular update (yum upgrade).
These updates includes security issues and important regressions. So you
absolutely want these.
We only support two major releases, so when 1.13 comes out in few weeks,
1.11 will become unsupported, so I'd suggest you to upgrade. Follow our
Remember to BACKUP your instance before upgrading, I highly recommend to
do this also for minor updates.
It brings interesting question - since Katello now uses
foreman-installer, shall we move the install/upgrade instructions to theforeman.org? Do we also have upgrade procedure to the first version
which uses the new approach?
