eh whatever. worst case scenario is I have to re-build the search index.

it's one search index rebuild, michael, how long could it take? 10 weeks?

alright okay which one of you posted this to Reddit lol

@ashfurrow I've been going through Elasticsearch upgrades for 3-4 years and I don't think I ever lost the indices, but I haven't been keeping everything either.

@ashfurrow Worst case just over a month :blobcatgiggle:​ naaah, but it took us at least 24 hours lol

@stux did you also have to upgrade to ElasticSearch 7? I've found some guides online, it doesn't look too difficult.

@ashfurrow correct! Just add the 7.x repo, apt upgrade and done!

(It could be booting ES7 can get stuck, that case just quick Google for extra line in service file)
