Will the system upgrade change the current data structure?

My discourse forum version is now v2.4.0.beta2 +92, will upgrading to the latest version change the existing database structure?

How do I find out about the specific changes? Are there any major changes between these releases? How should I compare the database structure changes?

Yes, upgrades often change the database structure irreversibly. You can find the automated database migrations at


Yes. There have been many migrations since then. They just work. You don’t really need to check anything.

The bigger thing you should be concerned about is PostgreSQL 13 update. That usually just works, but there can be a couple snags.
