Want to upgrade from c5 5.6.3.3 to 5.8 and from Supermint to Supermint 3

Permalink Browser Info Environment
I'm interested in the new features available in Supermint 3. What is the best way to go about upgrading both the environment AND the theme? I have started working on the dev site and have a lot of the content created. The address is:http://dev-paccoast.com/
What is the best way to go about this-I've never upgraded from 5.6 to 5.8 and I've never upgraded a complete theme from one generation to another.
If I go ahead and upgrade from 6 to 8, then Supermint to Supermint 3, will I lose content? Thank you.

Hi Suzanne,

I just came across this issue and decided to answer you.

First of all, you can't upgrade concrete5 from 6.x to 8.x! The code base is totally different. The only way to do this is by migrating the old site to a new site. There is a few ways to do this.

1. You can use the migration tools...
You can download them here:
https://github.com/concrete5/addon_migration_tool...
(for export content from 6.x use legacy version and for importing content use the other)

But this is a fairly complicated approach and you need to really know how the migration tools work.

2. You can of course simply build your new 8.x site from the ground up and copy/paste content from the old 6.x site. If you do not have a lot of pages/content, this might be the best route to follow.

But anyhow, I wish you the best of luck and hope you can pull it through (concrete5 8.2.x is great)!
