Upgrading from Free PBX 12 to 13

Don’t use memory balooning 1g should be enough

Thank you Dicko and Bob,

I also found this post that I shall tie in here pointing to a potential issue with “memory ballooning” on Virtual Machines as Dicko was saying:

It seems that the proposed solution is to use a fixed amount of memory and not a range in other words… I will report back with confirmation.

Unfortunately no further luck. I reverted to a backup at version 6.12.65-31, set the memory at a fixed 3gb and then ran the upgrade script for 6.12.65-32 which appeared to go through OK. I restarted the VM and then ran the upgrade script for 10.13.66-1.sh that persistently seems to crash with out of memory issues.

Although the crash appears to occur at different points based on my increased memory tests (including not using ballooning on this attempt), this time I had issues with:
