Seafile upgrade from 5.1 to 6.0 fails "gunicorn.conf not found"


I actually have the version 5.1.4 of seafile and I wish to upgrade it to 6.0

I’ve downloaded the latest version by running:


And then I ran the upgrade with

root@SEAFILE:/home/Seafile# seafile-server-6.3.2/upgrade/

the problem is that it says that conf/gunicorn.conf is missing

Any help on that??


You have to do all minor steps, so also to 6.1 and 6.2 before installing 6.3.
