Upgrading from 6.3 to 7.1
29 June, 2015
previously we used 6.3 version as our main version and already configured data source from different applications. We also have many views and reports on the same server.
If we upgrade 6.3 to latest version that's 7.1 do we lose datasheet or reports ??
Also we exported all this data from export option individually.
can i restore it back in upgraded version. Please help
The upgrade from 6.3 to 7.1 is seamless and all of your data sources/views/reports should be accessible after the upgrade. You shouldn't have to worry about losing data, however, we recommend backing up your database before upgrading as a precaution.
Alternatively, you could have a production environment that is 6.3 and a development environment that is 7.1 in order to test functionality before making an official switch. Under this scenario you could export the data from your production environment (6.3),import into your development environment (7.1), and then test as necessary.
Although dated, here is a link to our upgrade guide outlining some best practices.
