    Hi there, I'm using Elgg v2 which was installed by Installatron. What is the easiest way to upgrade to v3.3.0? I tried overwriting the files and running upgrade.php, without much luck. Hope you can help me out!
    • UPGRADE 2.3 > 3.1
      - backup DB
      - backup production
      - backup /mod
      - backup elgg-config/settings.php
      - login as Administrator
      - turn off all plugins
      - turn off all simple caches' options (Dashboard -> Advanced settings)
      - go to Dashboard and stay on there
      - format your DB, tables and columns to utf8mb4 and InnoDB
      - change a new .htaccess \ nginx
      - delete old /vendor and files
      - copy the new 3.1 /vendor and files
      - add new changes in elgg-config/settings.php
      - turn on $CONFIG->image_processor = 'imagick'; in elgg-config/settings.php
      - delete old /mod
      - delete in /data folders: /views_simplecache and /system_cache
      - run upgrade.php -> go to admin/upgrades and run Upgrades -> return on Dashboard
      - copy new /mod 
      - activate only bundled plugins
      - run upgrade.php \ flush the caches

      enable and set your 3rd party plugins
