  • EspoCRM upgrade from version 5.9.4 to 7.5.5 (Non conventional way)

    Hi Everyone,

    I have upgraded an old EspoCRM version (5.9.4) using a non conventional way (no access to CLI and not following the manual upgrade documentation)

    Bottom line is that everything seems to be working properly and i wonder if anyone have done it that way and if this process will not create problems in the future.

    Steps followed:

    1 - Duplicate the database using PHPmyadmin (to be on the safe side).
    2 - Create new Dir on server with a fresh 7.5.5 version installation files.
    3 - Update PHP to version 8.0 (Required by installation).
    4 - Run Setup installation as normal.
    5 - Connect to the existing (duplicated) database with credentials.
    6 - Copy Custom Dir from old installation (all custom entities, ect...).
    7 - Copy Data/Upload Dir.
    8 - Login.
    9 - Go to Administration and rebuild.

    Everything works perfectly from users accesses to custom entities and emails.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    All must be okay, you may have small issues but all are fixable, for example other users passwords will be not valid so you need to regenerate new passwords for them
