I have an old 32 bit FreePBX install on a little rackmount server that I need to upgrade to SNG7. I don’t mind a couple of hours downtime while upgrading, but I need to continue using the same hardware.
Is my best option to run a backup from within FreePBX web GUI, then reinstall and restore the backup? Will SNG7 restore a 10.x backup, or will I need to make sure I’m running a matching version of the 64, and restore to that before upgrading?
I gather the migration script is the preferred method, but I also gather this needs 2 machines. I can arrange this, but would need to run the migration twice… And I also want to keep the call history, which apparently needs to be done manually anyway.
