Keywords: SuiteCRM - AWS - Technical issue - Upgrade
I have SuiteCRM 7.10.22 running on Ubuntu 14.04, upgraded from the original install of 7.6 or thereabouts.
Now, to upgrade further, I need to upgrade the PHP from 7.0 to 7.1, which is not possible on Ubuntu 14.04.
I would like to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 (or 18.04) and then upgrade my SuiteCRM to 7.10.25
It appears there is no easy path to do this, so I am thinking:
(A) More complex but probably cleaner
Build a new 7.10.x on Ubuntu 16.04
Upgrade that to 7.10.22
Migrate the data/configuration from the old Ubuntu 14.04 version (the mySQL db is on RDS)
Upgrade StuieCRM then to 7.10.25 (as I'm now on Ubuntu 16.04)
Can I just upgrade my existing Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu 16.04, and then proceed to upgrade SuiteCRM? (ie will upgrading ubuntu from 14 -> 16 cause SuiteCRM to break)
I did locate an awsmarketplace image of a SuiteCRM 7.10.4 on Ubuntu 16.04, but I can't launch this image as it asks me to accept T&Cs first, but the page to do this on states the image is no longer available.
So to implement (A) above, I need to find an image/stack of a clean 7.10.x on Ubuntu 16.04
Any help is appreciated
