Update from 2.8.1 to 2.8.4 SP6
« on: May 17, 2016, 07:17:47 PM »
Dear Friends,

I am a newbie to website baker. We have a old centos 5.3 server on which we have 2.8.1 site. Now we are migrating that server to a new server with CentOS 7 with latest php and mysql. I can install 2.8.4 directly on new server but can't install 2.8.1. Due to versions change I can't have new version on old server as well as can't have old version on new server due to mysql is disabled in latest php. It requires to use mysqli functions instead. Can anybody help to me migrate this 2.8.1 to 2.8.4 SP6?

at first... we dont have a Version 2.8.4 SP6- i'm sure, you mean WB 2.8.3 SP6

its not possible to upgrade a version 2.8.1 up to 2.8.3 SP6 in one step
you need the way over a simple WB 2.8.3 (see here for download).

Follow the instruction from the tutorial here ->,23412.0.html

see second section to prepare you system
Upgrade from WB 2.8.1 to WB 2.8.3
Upgrade from WB 2.8.0 to WB 2.8.3

important hint

the old Version WB 2.8.3 doesnt run on newer PHP-Version (PHP 5.6 and newer)
and also not, if mysql-strict mode is active

if its not possible, to set your system (for this upgrade) in a older PHP- and/or MySQL-version, you have to install a new full package WB 2.8.3 SP6 and rebuild the old page structure there
Probleme sind da, um sie zu lösen, nicht, um nach Ausreden zu suchen.
