WebMail Lite 8 Documentation

Upgrading instructions

Please use the following instructions to upgrade from previous v8 of WebMail Lite to the latest version of WebMail Lite 8.

If you need to upgrade from v7 of WebMail Lite please following "Alternative migration approach" described in Migration from v7 documentation page.

  1. Create complete backup of your existing installation and the database. You can use tools like PhpMyAdmin or mysqldump to get a database backup.

  2. Remove all the installation files except for data/ subdirectory.

  3. Download and extract new product package, copy all the subdirectories and files where the previous installation was located; data/ subdirectory must however remain intact.

NB: The package includes .htaccess file with adjustment directives to make CSRF protection work; getting Error 500 may mean you have mod_rewrite disabled. Read more on this at CSRF protection documentation page.

  1. Log in as superadmin, navigate to Database Settings screen, click "Create/Update tables" and "Update configuration" buttons.

NB: There's a known issue when, upon the upgrade, users have Contacts screen opened by default, rather than email inbox. To correct that, modify data/settings/modules/CoreWebclient.config.json file and make sure it has the following configuration settings added:

"DefaultAnonymScreenHash": [
"DefaultUserScreenHash": [
