Best upgrade path?
@Friendica Support

HI you all. I've been busy lately, so not much activity lately. But, I am back on line a little more now and again.

I am currently on v2020.03

I have been unable to upgrade due to a few server constraints. These will be resolved i the next 2- 3 weeks.

Being that my version is 3 versions old, what is the best way to upgrade? Do I upgrade one version at a time? 2020.06, then 2020. 09 and then 2020.012?

Or, can I just upgrade directly you 2020.12?

A well, I will be switching to Maria DB from MySQL. Will this have any impact?

Latest release note say "If you are updating from an older version than the 2020.03 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version." so you're good, you can upgrade directly to the last release.

As for the MariaDB switch, it is transparent for Friendica, nothing to change.

Thanks for the feedback.

I did see the notes. But, I just wanted to make sure that you might have heard of some hiccups for others making a similar 3 version jump.

Once i get there, I'll get back at you with feedback.
