Need Video .. Migrating from 7.12.x to SuiteCRM 8.x versions

As the title, my SUITECRM runs on Linux Shared hosting, so If someone has a video instructions on how to upgrade, please show the URL. Thank you so much !


I do not have a video on the process, how did I do the migration, but I have steps below hope this will help.

NOTE: Update your php.ini first and check your post_upload_max_filesize. In your terminal run the code below and update:

grep -inr upload_max_filesize /etc/

Check Permission before you proceed to the upgrade:

find . -type d -not -perm 2755 -exec chmod 2755 {} \;
find . -type f -not -perm 0644 -exec chmod 0644 {} \;
find . ! -user www-data -exec chown www-data:www-data {} \;
chmod +x bin/console
  1. Update your Node.js version, and in your terminal, run the code below.
sudo apt update
  1. Install or update your Node.js version; follow the compatibility matrix depending on your SuiteCRM 8 version.
curl -sL | sudo bash -
  1. Then run the code below to install nodejs.
sudo apt -y install nodejs
  1. After the installation or update of your nodejs, check if it was successfully installed or updated by running the command below:
nodejs -v | node --version
  1. After installing the nodejs, install the required version of Anglular CLI.
npm install -g @angular/cli@12
  1. Then Check the Anglular CLI version if it was successfully installed:
ng --version
  1. After Angluar CLI, install the required version of yarn.
curl -sL | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list
sudo apt update && sudo apt install yarn
  1. Then Check the yarn version
yarn -v

After following this steps, follow the SuiteCRM 8 Migration here. Hope this will helps a lot to you.

All, installation done, Cause the Linux server with shared account didn’t install, just active.
I only run the command (or Execution file) on the browser.

Could we use same steps to upgrade from 7.13 to 7.14?
