Tips for Successful TYPO3 6.2 Upgrades
Having a good process is crucial for a successful, professionally delivered upgrade. With Web Essentials TYPO3 Upgrade Process, we have successfully upgraded 50+ TYPO3 websites. Our upgrade process involves 46 steps and has evolved over many upgrades to develop into a best practice. We have put together some tips for you:
Tip 1: Don't Underestimate the Project
Upgrades can get really messy and are very difficult to estimate. Make sure you can dedicate extra time if needed to this project. Here is where problems often occur:
- Migrating with own extensions that use DAM
- Migrating Templavoilà
- Migrating tt_news
- Migrating a changed core
- Migrating cal
- Migrating with Deprecated TypoScript
- Migrating User functions
Tip 2: Look at Our Upgrade Guidelines
Make sure you work on a copy of your website on a development or preferably continous deployment environment.
- Compare Front end and Backend (live and your development environment)
- Delete Cache, adjust DB source
- Run Upgrade Wizard
- Delete Install Tool User Cache
- Reindex Indexed Search
