Upgrade notes from version 4.x to 5.0?

Hi, noticed my version was out of date, seems I'm running 4.0.33 and would like to upgrade to 5.0.17.

I am current on support and I've downloaded 5.0.19.

Can you point me towards upgrade notes so I can cover all the bases in case something goes wrong?

I've searched but I could only seem to find install notes and nothing concerning the move from 4.x to 5.x.

Also, I'm currently using SQL2k standard, am I correct that 5.x will run on this?

Thanks!

You shouldn't have any trouble with the upgrade -- as per usual, we recommend regular backups, including before upgrades, but we haven't heard of any issues.

The release notes for Fogbugz 5.0 and subsequent point releases are here:

And FogBugz 5.0 does indeed run on regular MS SQL Server 2000:

Let us know if you have any trouble!

One more thing: to upgrade, just run the FogBugz 5.0.19 installer on the webserver.  The install wizard will do an upgrade of your existing installation.

Sumana, thanks for getting back to me.

Just as a double check, are all settings for fogbugz stored in the database?

Are there any files in the website directory that I should backup? I'm running a vanilla install, but I am using Fogbugz with Vault and our email server (exchange, smtp).

Thanks!

Hello!  If you've made no changes to the FogBugz source code, then you don't have to back up anything in the website directory.  As of FogBugz 4.0, attachments are stored in the database instead of the "FileUploads" folder.

Yes, the settings for FogBugz (such as users, projects, SMTP connection, etc.) are stored in the database.
