Upgrading - Up to RavenDB 4.1
Upgrading RavenDB from a version earlier than 4.2 to a higher major version,
requires the upgrading of the server and all clients in lockstep.
Please visit our migration introduction
page to learn more about migrating from early versions.
Upgrading - RavenDB 4.2 and Higher
When RavenDB is upgraded from version 4.2 and higher, e.g. from 4.2 to 5.3,
it is recommended - but not mandatory - to upgrade the clients, since they
are compatible with servers of versions higher than theirs.
To properly upgrade your applications and server, we advise you to upgrade the server first,
then the clients.
This way, your applications will keep working as before and you can update
them one by one if needed.
