Migrration from 6.10 to 7.2


#1

Enonic version: 6.10.3
OS: Ubuntu

The customer has Enonic 6.10.3 and we would like to migrate to 7.2. However, I’m not sure we need to migrate to 6.14/6.15 first and then to 7.2. Does it make sense?

From the Enonic XP 7.0 upgrade notes:

You need to be running at least Enonic XP 6.15.x (if you are running an older version, upgrade to 6.15.x first)

Ensure you have 6.15 Toolbox available

What this means is that in order to create a proper system dump that can be imported into XP 7, you need to have the current data in an environment which is running a version of 6.15 (I recommend the latest, which is currently 6.15.10)

This does not mean that you need the live production environment to be running 6.15, or that you need to upgrade your apps (usually a moot point, as they should be forwards compatible between 6.10.3 and 6.15.10 anyway). It could be enough for you to export or dump your content into a separate XP environment which is running 6.15 before you do the upgrade to XP 7.
