We are running FreePBX 12, and I want to upgrade to 14. I would follow this guide to migrate everything, but my problem is that since the new FreePBX is not activated, I have no access to System Administration in the new system. How can I make sure the new system is configured when I don’t have access to any of the commercial modules, nor to the system’s own configuration through the FreePBX interface?
I hate to think that I would have to buy a second license to activate the system just for the time needed to migrate everything. I need to have both systems running correctly in order to configure the new one before moving from my production server to the new server.
The docs for the Conversion Tool says: “The conversion tool requires that the new machine is Activated.” Do I really have to purchase a second license to do this?
Has anyone else had this problem? What do you do?
