Gitea upgrade / Git version


I have an old version of gitea (1.4.3) and git version
Can I upgrade directly gitea to 1.9.2 and git to an 2.x version ? Which gitea version for which git version is ok ?

Thank you for your help and reply

Iā€™m not a gitea developer, but I would upgrade.
Afaik, git has backward compatibility, so your repos should work well.
On the other hand, gitea uses migrations to work with a db, so it should smoothly upgrade the structure of your db.

Anyway, doing backups in time is a good remedy for a headache =) You can backup your data (all db, and files, and executables) before the upgrade and then just see does it work. If not, you can easily revert it back using the backups.
