Upgrading instructions

You can download the latest version of AfterLogic WebMail Lite PHP at http://www.afterlogic.org/download/webmail-lite-php

Upgrading to version 7 of WebMail Lite is only available for users of WebMail Lite 6.5 or above.
Regardless of your current version number, you're performing the upgrade at your own risk!
Before any upgrade attempts, be sure to backup your installation completely.

1. Move your existing WebMail Lite installation to any backup location, including the data folder. Back up WebMail Lite database as well.

2. Extract all the files and folders from the downloaded archive to your WebMail Lite installation location.

3. Restore the content of data/settings folder, it should hold settings.xml and config.php files. If you had any plugins installed, you need to copy them from backup to data/plugins directory.

4. Navigate to WebMail Lite Admin Panel: http://WEBMAIL-LITE-ON-YOUR-SERVER/adminpanel

5. WebMail Lite should get all the settings from the previous WebMail Lite installation, you just need to update WebMail Lite database format by clicking "Update Tables" button in Database Settings screen.

8. For migrating contacts from WebMail Lite below 6.5, run migration/contacts.php script from the browser; for security reasons, this script is disabled by default, you'll need to remove or comment out the exit line there, first.

9. If you upgrade to v7.6.11 or newer from v7.6.10 or older, you will need to reset AdminPanel password.

10. Once logged into WebMail Lite itself, don't forget to press Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl+R to update web browser cache to avoid JavaScript errors. Also, it's strongly recommended to remove all the file and subdirectories under data/cache/ directory.
