I have all my data and services (WMS, WFS, WMTS) in GeoServer 2.8 (workspaces, shapefiles, etc.) and I have to migrate to GeoServer 2.12.1.

What things do I have to consider to do that?

I mean files (data_dir), PostgreSQL databases, PostGIS.

  • How is your current GeoServer configured? – nmtoken Mar 30 '18 at 10:59
  • It is configured with docker. – Dantmaur Apr 2 '18 at 15:02

Make a copy of your existing data directory (you have moved it out of the installation directory, of course) and then add the new war file to the tomcat webapps directory and wait for it to restart.

  • I need just move old data directory geoserver to new data directory geoserver? – Dantmaur Apr 2 '18 at 15:04
  • Yes that is all – Ian Turton Apr 2 '18 at 15:45
  • And What about database? Do I have to migrate database data? – Dantmaur Apr 4 '18 at 13:31
  • not unless you want to – Ian Turton Apr 4 '18 at 13:33
