SME 6.0 to SME 7.3 Update/Upgrade

SME 6.0 to SME 7.3 Update/Upgrade
« on: May 22, 2008, 07:24:10 AM »
HI

I am currently running a Firewall on SME 6.0.  I need to somehow upgrade/update the box to SME 7.3.

Can anybody please tell me is this possible?  I have not seen any how to on this.

Most posts suggest you need to do a fresh 7 install then carry over the settings etc.

I would prefer to do an update as I have LOTS of settings on the 6 box.

Any help and advice is appreciated.

Regards

Start Here,

http://wiki.contribs.org/Updating_to_SME_7.2#Upgrading_from_a_system_prior_to_7.1

look at the part about upgrading from systems prior to 7.0 about 2 pages down.

I don't know how familiar you are with SME, I see you just joined the forum. How difficult it is will depend largely on what is installed other then the base install. If you do not know what contribs are installed and are not familiar with the system, you could post the list of panels in the server-manager window and we can see if we can help identify what is not in the base.
