Starting to plan an upgrade


Recommended Posts

We're getting ready to move our Daminion server to a new host and upgrade from 4.1.0 build 1269 to the current 6.x release. To plan that move I'm trying to understand the preferred process.

I was thinking of following the process outlined in the "migrate Daminion Server to a new computer", which seems pretty straight forward for getting a copy on the new host. But I have some additional questions about then doing the actual upgrade.

If I run the installer for 6.x on top of an existing 4.1 that should take care of the Daminion app itself - but does it take care of the PostrgesSQL upgrade as well? Or does that have to be done separately?

Any know troubles going from 4.1.0 to 6.x that folks have encountered?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Bobb, 

You can go to one of the two following ways: 

- install the v 4.1 on the new PC, move the server with the database and upgrade the version from 4.1 to 6.0 on the new PC

- upgrade Daminion from 4.1 to 6.0 on the old PC (the database will be upgraded along with the app itself), then install v 6.0 on the new PC and transfer the server. 

Unfortunately, we haven't had precedents of upgrading from 4.1 to 6.0 yet (the lowest version was 4.6 - no issues), probably someone here on the forum can share his experience if any. Anyway, we will be happy to offer you our remote assistance with the whole process of upgrade\server transfer and monitor any possible issues during the process. Please let us know if the remote session would be possible and needed. 

Kind regards,
