From Internet Explorer 7 to Microsoft Edge/Google Chrome

Hello Everyone

Xibo uses Internet Explorer 7. Can I change it to Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome? Because I have a website that only works on Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

Thanks for help.

I think you’re using a very old version. Xibo hasn’t used IE by default for some time now.

If you’re still on Windows XP/7, then you’ll need to upgrade to Windows 10, and then you can run the Xibo 2R25x Players which use CEF by default, but can use Edge as required.

Hello Alex

I’m using the version 2.3.7. I installed Xibo last november on Windows 10, maybe came since then some updates that I didn’t saw.

How can I upgrade Xibo? Do I need to install the whole Xibo (Players, docker, etc.) again or do I need only to install the player with the new version?

Thanks for your help.

2.3.7 is a CMS version.

The latest Player release for that CMS is here:

It uses CEF by default, and requires Windows 10.

And how can I use it? Do I just need to install this on the screens and connect with the CMS like the older version and then can I show websites that works on Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome?

You just install the MSI. Your existing configuration will keep in place. It won’t use Chrome, it will use CEF which is similar to Chrome, but not the same.

Okay, thank you. I will try it.

I tried it with the new player, but then I get a black screen when the layout comes with the website that uses now the browser CEF. Can you help me there?

What is the website trying to show? A video?

It is trying to show to live cameras from my company.

So video then?

If so you’ll need to add the website address to the Edge Browser Whitelist in the Display Settings profile attached to that display in the CMS. You’ll need to upgrade your CMS to version 2.3.9 to have that setting.

Hello Alex

How can I upgrade my CMS to the version 2.3.9? I’m sorry if I ask dumb questions, but it would be very helpful for me.

The documentation is a good starting point:

To upgrade my CMS shoulld I go to my install folder and then should I run vendor/bin/phinx migrate -c phinx.php, right?
But I can’t find the file

I presume you’re on Windows then?

If so, Upgrading to xibo v2, unable to do database migrations

Yeah, I’m on Windows.
I can’t find the vendor\bin folder. Is that normal?

If you’ve done a custom install then yes that would be unusual. If you’ve done a Docker install, then you’re not following the correct instructions. Follow the upgrade instructions for Docker-based installs.

I did a Docker install with this guide: Was this guide wrong? If it was wrong, what installation guide should I do?

There’s nothing wrong with the guides, you’re just following the wrong one for your case.

If you originally did a Docker install, then you need to do the upgrade instructions for a Docker install, not the upgrade instructions for a custom install.

With a Docker install, there’s no need to manually run migrations. It’s all done for you as part of the docker upgrade process.

I did now the upgrade with this link: I have now Xibo Version 2.3.9 instead of 2.3.7, so it works. Where can I find the Edge Browser Whitelist?
