    Upgrading to latest version. What's involved?


    We're using Umbraco 7. We'd like to upgrade to the latest version (8.9 I believe). What's involved? Is it guaranteed to work seamlessly? Will we lose any data in our database? Will any data be corrupted?

    Hi Gibran

    There is no direct upgrade path from Umbraco 7 to Umbraco 8. You need to migrate instead - You can find some more information about this in the docs here

    It's probably also a good idea to investigate what 3rd party packages you're potentially using and research whether these work with or exist for Umbraco 8.9 as well + Any custom developed property editors too.

    Before doing anything it's always a good idea to create backup of all the files and the database too in case something goes horribly wrong in the process.
