I'm running IPB version 4.7.1 on php version 7.4
My host is about to update to php 8 and then i'll update to the latest IPB version, but since i missed v4.7.2 and i dont have the compatibility check tool I'd like to know which of those should be updated first ?
I also i assume its best to disable all apps and plugins , at which stage it should be done exactly
You should update to the latest release of the platform, and be using the current compatibility check tool. You should ensure that your 3rd party applications are compatible with the latest release, and PHP 8
@Marc Stridgen so the correct order is first to update to IPB 4.7.5, run the compatibility tool and only then update the server to php 8 ?
No, it would update to PHP 8, run the compatibility checker, then upgrade
@Marc Stridgen but the compatibility checker is only from 4.7.2 and i'm on 4.7.1
You are checking your server is compatible with what you are upgrading to, not what you are currently on
Ah ok, thanks 🙂
No problem at all, and good luck with the moves
