Upgrading from 8.5 to 9 steps?

Hi I am using version 8.5 and want to use 9.0 now.

Any steps to follow? or just replacement of files will work?

Hi,
There is no official roadmap for v8.5 to v9.0.
You should alter some db objects on the db and replace the files included in the web/ directory of the release of v9.

You can "upgrade" your database by executing the db scripts in the numerical order they are presented.

Do it at your own risk

Kind Regards,

Hi jorgebg,

Is it just the contents on the web/ directory that is required for the website upgrade? and do all the scripts have to be run in order to upgrade the database to the correct level?

Kind regards

Hey CJWinty,

You will need to execute script updates as well.

If you look at source for v9.0 you need to execute scripts 43 to 54 to upgrade from v8.5

As per jorge's recommendation, do at your own risk.

I suggest testing it in on a development/testing environmnent first

Cheers
