 Post subject: Migration from 1.9.1 to the latest version?

I have a rather large corporate Intranet database still running on the 1.9.1 release and Ubuntu 10 server.

What is the best way to move the whole system to the new hardware and software?

I have purchased a new server, uploaded the 16.04 Ubuntu, but I'm unable to install the 1.9.1 platform and restore the "live" database and slowly upgrade it to the latest release. When I try to install the 1.9.1 I get a white screen...there were a few prompts beforehand related to the permissions, which I took care of...

I'm reluctant to use the live database in order to perform the incremental updates. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

You should use a copy of the original that should be backed up along with the files of the site of course.

https://docs.cmsmadesimple.org/moving
https://docs.cmsmadesimple.org/upgrading/old-versions
https://docs.cmsmadesimple.org/upgrading/to-cmsms-2.x

All documented...

Yeah, create a copy of the original CMSMS instance on your original server - and upgrade that. Then copy over to your new server.

Thanks for the info!
My only concern is if something goes wrong with the upgrade I would not be able to restore it anymore. Maybe I should setup another system with identical software (if I can find everything that old) and do the upgrade. Once that's done, then migrate everything to the new hardware...

Most times I create a subfolder to do testing/upgrading, thesite.com/dev

Copy all folder/files into the subfolder, export the DB, create a new empty DB, import DB, change the config.php to use new DB, make changes/upgrades to new subfolder site...

Agree with Dr CSS. Once the upgrade is tested and working ok you can then copy and paste that version of the site over the live site. That way you can work on the upgrade whilst keeping the live site unaffected.

Thank you very much for your help!

One last question:
Is there a matrix that shows what version Ubuntu/MySql is compatible with the corresponding CMS releases?

As of now I have a 10.04 Ubuntu server and running the 1.9.1.
How many "jumps/CMS upgrades" can I get on this server (as I'm sure newer versions of CMS require newer mySQL server); before I have to transition to a new Ubuntu server.

I do have the latest Ubuntu server already staged (16.04), but I'm not sure
what's the "oldest" CMS version compatible with the 16.04 architecture. ( I tried loading the 1.9.1 on the 16.04 but it did not work)

I would like to upgrade from 1.9.1 as far as I can on the existing server, and then migrate to the new server and apply the rest of the CMS upgrade until reach the most recent CMS release.

Thanks again!

Still cleaning up the install; but it looks like the majority of the work is done.
Here are some notes for those jumping from 1.9 to 2.x:

These changes helped me to go from 1.9.x to 1.12.1
(it appears the Menu Manager Module is not compatible with the 2.2.2 version; need to come up with a replacement)

EDIT Your Layout, Style Sheets, Left + 1 column - to brings back the logo:
CHANGE background: url ( '/ uploads / bg.gif');
TO THIS
background: url ([[root_url]] / uploads / bg.gif ');

This needs to be done to restore appropriate home page layout:
Layout, Template, Left simple navigation + 1 column:
Replace Stylesheet with {cms_stylesheet}

This is incorrect. MenuManager does work with CMSMS 2.0 through to 2.2.2. It even comes with CMSMS for the time being. You must have an error in your templates that earlier versions did not detect.
