Upgrade version in 9.0.0

During an upgrade from one version to another in 9.0.0 (for example from to 9.0.0003.03) there is no need for a separate data migration. The Data base schema is updated automatically if changes are added.

Do not forget to back up your data at the database level before migration.
  1. Back up your database in MS SQL, Oracle, or PostgreSQL.
  2. Uninstall the old CMS version.
  3. Install the new CMS version.
  4. Run the new CMS version.
  5. If problems occur, restore the old CMS verson and database from the backup.
