Install V5 without SSH, migration questions,

Hi, there is a way to install and to update V5 without SSH access?

V5 can be installed or updated by SSH using composer?


I want also ask for in future migrate from V4 to V5 I need install V5 as new also configuring with a new separate database, admin user, etc?

Will be the migration process be included in Softacolous? Will be possible directly from there?


It’s possible but we expect users to have SSH access.

We plan to make v5 available through Softaculous once we have a stable release.

Thanks for the reply. I have SSH access but I don’t want use SSH because can broken my control panel if I do something wrong and with yum install is easy broken server.

For install I think so just need download on GitHub upload and follow instructions?
And how to update by FTP if an update is available?

If I want to migrate now from 4 to 5 for be able to use PHP 7.4 need install new database in the version 5 before use the migration tool on version 4?


Ok, understood.

There are multiple ways to install the app, that’s one option.

To upgrade from v4 you need to install v5 as a separate app and then use the migration tool in the latest version of v4 on Settings > Account Management.

Great but how to update?
Without a guide on how can be updated by FTP I will be not able to update once I may able to install by FTP.

To upgrade from v4 you need to install v5 as a separate app

Than with separate database too, I suppose.

Thanks for the replies.

v5 has a built in update feature which uses Git

Correct, once v5 is running you can migrate the data over

Thanks so I will be able to update V5 directly from the UI interface?
All this question because I’m considering to try to install V5 and migrate now.

Thanks again.

Yes, that is correct
