How to upgrade from Apollo essential to Apollo adv/pro while keep existing Database

by Technical Evangelist on ‎06-25-2020 10:31 AM (187 Views)

For example user want to upgrade their Apollo essential 16.6 to Apollo adv/pro 16.6 while keeping all existing services in their Apollo essential database (PostgreSQL).


Is this possible?

The answer is Yes.


Customer just need to install Apollo adv/pro using existing database, and Apollo adv/pro pickup existing PostgreSQL database without deleting previous Apollo essential's services.


Here are the detail workflow tested by Apollo development team:
1. Install Apollo Core 2020
2. Configure Postgres(10) database
3. Add additional services and datatsets.
4. Uninstall Apollo Core but selected to remain the configuration file
5. Run Apollo Pro/Adv 2020 installer suite.
6. Install Apollo
7. Configure Apollo (use default settings but point to the existing Postgres database used by previous Apollo essential)

Thanks Haiyan,


this really helped me. The config wizard also updates an old Core DB to a newer version. So I have been able to migrate a APOLLO 2018 core to APOLLO 2020 Advantage without any issues!


Well done!
