Migrating from 1.6.3 to 1.9.13

Postby ashmon » Thu Sep 17, 2015 2:34 pm


I am in a bit of a bad spot at the moment. I have inherited a really old VM box that is very unstable. It is running TestLink 1.6.3 with really old versions of Linux OS, mySQL and PHP. It basically has not been maintained for the past 8 or 9 years.

I got a new VM box with CentOS 7.0.1406 and plan to install TestLink 1.9.13. Is it possible to migrate the data (test cases, test suites,..) from 1.6.3 to 1.9.13? I already backed up the DB data (MySQL 5.0.24) from my old VM.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

You need lot of patience & time.
Give a look to posts on viewforum.php?f=58

you will need to do as indicated on README present on each TestLink distribution, upgrade from one version to new one from 1.6.3, 1.7, and so on

If you only want to migrate the test cases and suites, a simple export import might be the way to go? If you want to migrate all data (test results etc), good luck to you!
