Freepbx 12 backup restored to Freepbx 14?

is it possible to use a back .tgz file from Freepbx 12 and use it on Freepbx 14?

My old machine died, and now I am having a hell of a time trying to install older versions of Freepbx. TIA!

Short answer - no.

If you want to use your old backup, you’ll need to install a FreePBX 12 system that closely matches your backup and upgrade-in-place from there.

It would probably be faster to just fire it up and start from scratch. The GUI makes almost everything drag-and-drool, so getting up and running is usually pretty safe.
