Hi All I am new to Freepbx, so please be gentle. I have started a new role and we currently are using freepbx. the installed version is 220.127.116.11.
As I am new in the role I am looking to upgrade all our systems to up-to-date software. I have limited knowledge of FreePBX. I went to the modules sections to update some modules.
I noticed that there were a lot of modules which were old. I went ahead and ran a backup and then upgraded the modules one at a time. I have limited knowledge of linux based systems but can get on with the tasks at hand.
Some of the modules cannot backup as the PHP version installed is 5.2 and we require 5.33. I did not want to upgrade php until i sought advice. I wanted to check also if it is better for me to upgrade to freebpx 13 rather than just upgrade php which could be the minimalist step to do.
Would I be able to install the software and then load from the backup the or is it better to do incremental upgrades and then reach version 13 this way. Or is my thought process completely simplistic. I am from a windows background so please do not hold this against me!
Thank you in advance for any help provided.
