Running out of disk space - Upgrading to the next option

Hi there,

I am running out of disk space and I need to upgrade to the next better option. If I do that, do I need to backup reinstall my applications, restore my database and data, or I do not need to do any of those things?

Thank you.


  • When upgrading you don't need to do a backup/restore if everything goes smoothly. However, after you upgrade you may need to resize the filesystem and that is a risky procedure. You should definitely have backups before attempting to upgrade. Not because it's necessary, but because of the risk involved if something goes wrong.
