How to upgrade

This page is dedicated for users that needs to update Parties from an old version to a new one without lose their data.

Premises

Since old versions of Parties there is a problem with upgrade an old database YAML into a new one without lose data. That's why I highly recommend to convert into a SQL database to upgrade Parties.

Make a backup before upgrade!

Upgrade rules

Follow this order to upgrade your Parties version!

  • 1.4 => 1.5 (Only MySQL*)
  • 1.5 => 1.6/1.7 (Only MySQL*)
  • 1.7 => 2.0/Currently

You need to follow this order by choosing your database type.

* Why? Because with Parties 1.6 the database structure is changed and it's not safe convert it from an old parties data
