How to upgrade your Community Server to the latest version?

Community Serverv.6.5 - Community Serverv.9.0

Introduction

Community Server latest installation program and the source code can be found here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/teamlab/files/ONLYOFFICE_CommunityServer/

After the installation the license information can be found in the License folder.

To be able to upgrade your older Community Server version to the latest one, you need to perform the step-by-step upgrade to each interim version first.

Newer versions use an updated catalog structure, and though the data should be transferred automatically the backup of all the folders containing data is strongly recommended.

Starting with version 7.7 the upgrade using the below guide is possible for MySQL version only. You will need additional software to perform MySQL database backup prior to installation.

Updating ONLYOFFICE 6.5 to ONLYOFFICE 7.5

Step 1: Creating database backup

To avoid the loss of data perform the backup of the following folders:

  • c:\ProgramData\TeamLab\TeamLab Office\Data\ (or use the path where you have your 6.5 version installed)
  • c:\ProgramData\TeamLab\TeamLab Office\Web Studio\ (or use the path where you have your 6.5 version installed)

Backup MySQL database using any available software you have for such purposes.

Step 2: Updating software version

Community Server version is updated using the installer which can be found here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/teamlab/files/ONLYOFFICE_CommunityServer/_Previous%20versions/TeamLab%20v7.5/

After the installation is complete you can check the portals correct work.

  1. Check if both Files and Mail folders are present in the c:\Program Files\Ascensio System SIA\Teamlab Office Server\Data catalog (or the catalog used to install the previous version). If any of them is missing, copy them using the backup made.
    In case you do not use Mail module, the Mail folder will not be present and is not necessary.
  2. Launch the portal and check if everything is working correctly. After that you can continue upgrading to version 7.7.

Updating ONLYOFFICE 7.5 to ONLYOFFICE 7.7

Step 1: Creating database backup

If you changed the database name during the initial portals installation, you will need to use your own database name.
