Important Notes

Deprecating Notice

Please read VoipNow Deprecating Notice before going further.

Before Upgrade

MySQL and Elasticsearch database

Upgrade from VoipNow version < 5.0.0

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 to VoipNow 5.5.0, without downtime. 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 used.

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 5.5.0, call indexing to Elasticsearch will be resumed. Therefore, we recommend planning the database upgrade close to the actual upgrade.

Upgrade from VoipNow version >= 5.0.0

The upgrade is performed automatically during the installation.

Hubring database

If you are running a distributed setup with more than one Hubring node, please open a ticket in the 4PSA Support Zone for upgrade assistance.

Installation/Upgrade

In order to install or upgrade to VoipNow 5.5.0, please use this installer:

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

This script can upgrade an installation of 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.
