Upgrading to CMS 9.0

To upgrade a CMS site to version 9.0, it must first be upgraded to CMS 8.0.

Note: As with all pre-8.0 upgrades, you should first perform an 8.0 to 9.0 upgrade in a test environment, making sure to check all site functionality detailed in the CMS upgrade checklist, before upgrading a live site.

To upgrade an 8.0 site to CMS 9.0, follow these instructions:

  1. Install the CMS 9.0 system.
  2. After it's been installed, open the Ingeniux CMS 9.0 folder and run Upgrade last generation CMS Site Instance.

  4. [Optional] Click Browse to select the location of the DSS preview folder in the DSS Preview Location field.
  5. Enter a name for the new CMS 9.0 instance. Click Start.
  6. This brings up a welcome screen. Click Next to continue.

From this point forward, you can follow the instructions found in Creating a CMS Site Instance to complete the upgrade.

To upgrade a 9.0 site to a new service release:
