    Upgrading Umbraco 8 to 9 or 10 ?

    Hi All,

    I'm currently still working on Umbraco 8 and was planning within 3 months to start migrating to a newer version.

    Since Umbraco 9 is not a LTS versions I've been hesitant to move to it.

    I'm not sure which route to take, can I go from version 8 directly to 10 ?

    Is the underlying DB changed a lot or is it still compatible or is there a migration script for it.

    Or do I still have to go to latest version 8.x, minor version 9.x, latest version 9.x and then minor version 10.x ?

    Is there any documentation (haven't found it yet) on the prefered route to take to upgrade ?

    Thanks, Patrick

    Hi Patrick

    My plan is to upgrade to v10 because most projects are requiring using webp images and webp images are not working with v9. And of course, because v10 is LTS.

    Thanks, Alex

    I agree with Alex - Especially having seeing this plague a project that relied heavily on webp filenames from it's previous base of being on v8 and its google image references (which ended in webp)

    Incidentally, if you use something like Cloudflare- you can switch on it's auto "webp" conversion. So even if the image a jpeg on disk, it will actually serve it as a webp. A solution, but not ideal.

    Wait for v10 - I sure this will be the big "LOOK MUM" moment of Code Garden 2022.

    I also will go to 10, but was wondering if I have to go to 9 first in order to be able to migrate my existing website (wit a lot of content) to 10.

    I think to get from v8 to v9, you just need your site on the last patch of v8. The upgrade, will then do the DB update.

    Once, you are on v9, I'm thinking you could just then run the v10 installer on top.

    Remember, you are only upgrading the DB, so you wouldn't need to build the project with your custom controllers etc

    I'm sure HQ will release information soon, especially with Code Garden approaching.

    I would go for 10 if you don't have to worry about plugin dependency.

    Upgrading from 8 to 9 is smooth easy, even easier from 9 to 10, just follow the upgrade steps on Umbraco site.

    I did 8.17.1 to 9.4.3 and then 10 without an issue.

    Can you post the URLs for these upgrade steps here? Just to make sure I have the right URLs.

    Or write your short steps to upgrade from 8 to 10 :)

    Thanks.

    They're always on the Umbraco site - this is for version 9 to 10: https://our.umbraco.com/Documentation/Fundamentals/Setup/upgrading/version-specific

    That really depends on how many views and controllers, custom code etc. that you have :)

    Yes, I have a lot of work ahead of me :D. But the important thing is that the UMB upgrade was done.

    Last week for a small website I did a 8.9.1 to 10 upgrade directly. The database was migrated without any issue. Of course in code and views I had to make changes to reflect the new .Net Core classes.
