How to switch between ISPmanager versions
This article walks you through the steps you need to perform to switch between ISPmanager major versions, and upgrade ISPmanager Lite to Business.
Major version upgrade
ISPmanager 4 Lite -> ISPmanager 5 Lite
There are two ways to switch from ISPmanager 4 Lite to ISPmanager 5 Lite:
- Using migration
- Using the user import function
Migration means that ISPmanager 4 Lite installed on your server can be converted to ISPmanager 5 Lite running on the same server.
For more detailed information please refer to the Migration from ISPmanager 4 Lite to ISPmanager 5 Lite article.
Log in to ISPmanager 5 --> go to the User import module and complete the following steps:
Please note: the user import function can be used for importing users both from a remote server and local backup. If you are using the second variant, you are supposed to have a backup copy made in ISPmanager 4 and located on the target server.
ISPmanager 4 Pro -> ISPmanager 5 Lite and Business
You cannot upgrade from ISPmanger 4 Pro to ISPmanager 5 Lite or ISPmanager 5 Business on the same server.
Upgrading from ISPmanager 5 Lite to ISPmanager 5 Business
Upgrade from ISPmanger 5 Lite to ISPmanager 5 Business requires a new server, because these products have different architecture, and software applications.
