Here are a few procedures for our Gitea instance


We have a small script in place that takes over most of the work. In this example, we upgrade to version 1.13.0.

su - git
cd ~/gitea
./ 1.13.0

# Follow the instructions of the script.
# To stop/start gitea, it's suggested to open a second session as root.
systemctl stop gitea
systemctl start gitea

Afterwards - especially after major upgrades – compare the upstream templates for this release (choose the tag!) with the ones stored in /home/git/gitea/custom/templates. If substantial changes happened with this release, take the new versions and migrate the custom changes to them. You have to restart gitea to take these into effect.
