Cannot upgrade 21.x to 24.x - need a fresh install?

posts: 24 Australia

Hi all,

We have version 21.5 on our environments - we want to upgrade to 24.x

Our sysadmin indicated that we need to do a fresh install and cannot upgrade directly. This is because this is a major upgrade?

Is there any way / workaround for this so we don't lose all of our configurations / data?

Thanks.

Hello Leena,

You don't have to loose any data when updating, upgrading or doing a fresh install.
The data and settings are in the database and Tiki scripts take charge of updating it when moving up.

I can help updating (as I did for quit a few Tikis now 😎), contact me.

Thank you for that Bernard,

I have relayed this into our sysadmin. We are attempting the install sometime in the next day. Hopefully we won't run into problems but if we do we will reach out again :-)

Cheers,

Just a quick update - we are on 21.5 now, attempting to get onto 21.6, the sysadmin powers that be advised that we will wait till v25 is out before we do a major upgrade. Thank you :-)
