im currently on fpbx 13 10.13.66-22 and would like to migrate to the latest SNG7 on a new server.
i do not want to touch the production server (in place upgrade etc) as i don’t have sufficient failover for it in case of something going wrong.
as far as commercial modules settings (paring pro, conf pro), will the full backup carry those over? i assume the module has to be active during the backup on the old and then again on the new server during the restore for those settings to be restored.
does the full backup restore all vms/recordings/fw settings etc. i’ve done in place upgrades only so im a little bit nervous moving this production system to a new hardware. both are vms and im keeping the same MAC (different ip).
As of the date of that post, the script did not migrate voicemail config, voicemails, custom audios, and the file etc/asterisk/extensions_custom.conf
So that explains how to manually copy the mentioned data to the new server.
I am not sure, however, let’s say Endpoint Manager you can manually export the templates and the extensions as a csv. But I can’t tell if importing to a newer version of EPM will actually work… You’ll have to confirm that with someone from the FreePBX/Sangoma team.
I went with full backup of old server 13 10.13.66-22 and restored on a new server with 13 10.13.66-22 installed. so far everything seems to be great and all ext registered to the new box. i will try to upgrade to SNG7 next week since with the new server im able to take snapshots instead of file level backups. i will use “13 to 14 upgrade tool” however when i check for requirements it says
If you are not eligible for upgrades on any of these modules, you can continue, and the latest version suitable for the new FreePBX version will attempt to download. However, it is not recommended to upgrade FreePBX versions without all commercial modules being in their subscription period, as it may completely break your system. Please ensure you have a complete backup before proceeding, if this is the case!
My free updates period for the commercial modules that i have ended in 2016. Am I taking a huge risk going with the upgrade anyway? thanks for any feedback.
also i have few cascading time conditions, do these get moved over to SNG7 and translated onto calendar view?
