Xibo Upgrade Question


Is it possible to upgrade straight from Version 1.4.2 to 1.7.3 without losing the content we currently have built up?


Yes it is. You should be able to upgrade in one step from 1.4.2.

A few notes:

  1. Make sure your version of PHP is suitable for 1.7 series. Older installations tend to be on older versions of PHP which may not be suitable. Check the release notes for the requirements. I believe it’s 5.3.3

  2. Take backups of the database and the CMS library and settings.php file and make sure you can restore them if it goes wrong.

  3. Some content may require resizing after upgrade - particularly font sizes in your layouts so be prepared to work through them after upgrade.

  4. You’ll need to upgrade your Players to 1.7.3 as well.
