Upgrading from Cerb4 to Cerb6

Introduction

You can directly upgrade from Cerb 4.x to any version of Cerb 6.x without exporting your data or losing any of your settings. Cerb is smart enough to run all the intermediate migration scripts to bring your database up to date.

Instructions

Fresh install (simple)

In this guide, we'll assume your Cerb 4.x installation is at /cerb4 and your Cerb 6.x installation is at /cerb6.

  1. Download the Cerb 6.x files to a new location. You can follow the instructions in the book:
    http://cerberusweb.com/book/latest/installation/
  2. Stop when you get to the section about using the guided installer since you're going to use an existing database.
  3. Make a backup of your Cerb 4.x database.
  4. Copy the following settings (by hand) from /cerb4/framework.config.php to /cerb6/framework.config.php:

    • APP_DB_DRIVER
    • APP_DB_HOST
    • APP_DB_DATABASE
    • APP_DB_USER
    • APP_DB_PASS
    • LANG_CHARSET_CODE
    • DB_CHARSET_CODE
    • AUTHORIZED_IPS_DEFAULTS
  5. Copy your attachments directory /cerb4/storage/ to /cerb6/storage/
  6. Make sure your /cerb6/storage/ directory is writeable by the webserver.
  7. Run /cerb6/update in your web browser.
