Hi Sanjay,

- Install the Alfresco 6.0 first and do not start it.

- Take a dump of database of 5.0

- Point to the alf_data folder of 5.0 by making changes in the alfresco-global.properties file in 6.0

- Restore the dump to 6.0

- start the 6.0 server check whether the contents and other properties are properly working or not.

- Try to apply the customizations - (This may require little changes in your custom code)

- If they are working well then you're lucky else you might need to prepare your package using compatible sdk.

Kintu

hi,

how about we are running old 5.0 and want to upgrade to v 6.2, what is the stable/offical upgrade path?

for 5.0 - 6,2, which version allow the separation between Alfresco and PostgreSQL? it will be much stable in this way ?

any tools to migrate PostgreSQL bundled in 5.0 to another PostgreSQL in another server?

Hi @dba100 

Alfresco doesn't provide any tools to migrate PostgreSQL to another server or edition.

hi,

So this means for community edition, Alfresco and PostgreSQL must be in the SAME box in community edition?

the point now is, we are using v 5.0 community edition and it is unstable all the time, so even we upgrade we can only run on that SAME box we run v 5.0 ?

May I know: 

1) any way to check which cause slow ? what troubleshooting tools is recommended? 

2) we can't upgrade directly from 5.0 to 6.2, right ? must be first upgrade from 5.0 to 5.2 , then 5.2 ot 6.2?

  where can we download 5.2 ? https://sourceforge.net/projects/alfresco/files/ ?

  uprade path: https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/latest/upgrade/  is correct ?

3) from 5.0 to 5.2 , what is the need to know , known issue, and procedure to upgrade?

4) What is the version of PostgreSQL once we upgrade from 5.0 to 5.2 and 5.2 to 6.2 ?  I assume the PostgreSQL upgraded will have nothing lost ?

5) what OS is recommended for Alfresco

Hi @dba100 

1) PostrgreSQL can be installed on a different server - this blog post, altho old & relating to 5.0, shows how. See here too.

2) OS - linux is the most commonly used.

3) Troubleshooting - quite old but useful information. This see DevCon slidedeck.
