This document contains all the changes performed in the VoipNow 5.2.5.

Important Notes

Deprecating Notice

Please read VoipNow 5.2.5 before going further.

Before Upgrade

MySQL and Elasticsearch database

The new version contains significant MySQL and Elasticsearch database optimizations. Unfortunately, due to these improvements, a reindex is necessary, which might take hours on large databases. However, we made available a script that updates the databases prior to the actual VoipNow 5.2.5 upgrade, without downtime.

So, it's highly recommended to download this script:

https://www.4psa.com/software/voipnow5dbupgrade.sh

and run it on the Infrastructure Controller overnight or when the database is not heavily utilized.

System functionality will not be impacted while the script is running. Once the script has completed, you can proceed with VoipNow installation.

Once the Elasticsearch upgrade has started, calls will no longer be indexed in Elasticsearch (they will still be normally indexed in MySQL). After upgrading to VoipNow 5, call indexing to Elasticsearch will be resumed. Therefore, we recommend that you plan the database upgrade close to the actual upgrade to VoipNow 5.

Hubring database

If you are running a distributed setup with more than one Hubring node, please open an upgrade assistance ticket in 4PSA Help Desk.

Installation/Upgrade

In order to install or upgrade to VoipNow 5.2.5, please use the installer from:

https://www.4psa.com/software/voipnow5installer.sh

This script can upgrade VoipNow 3.5 and newer versions. If you want to upgrade an older version, upgrade to VoipNow 4.1.3 first.

Limited Release Notes

The current release notes contain only the changes that in our opinion might affect existing VoipNow customers.
