Important Notes About Patching or Upgrading to 6.5:
- Patch versus Upgrade: If you are currently on version 4.7, please follow the Upgrade Guide to move to version 6.5. If you are currently on any version of 5 or 6, please follow the Patch Guide when moving to version 6.5.
- Test Your Upgrade/Patch: We strongly recommend that you test your patch or upgrade in a test environment before updating your production environment. As always, please backup your database before patching or upgrading.
- Messaging Service: Customers that are using the Checkbox messaging service in any version prior to 6.3 will need to follow the UpgradeMessagingService.pdf guide located in the 6.5 documentation folder. Failure to update the messaging service will cause issues with the application and invitations. Earlier versions of the messaging service are no longer supported by Checkbox 6.5. If you updated the messaging service with version 6.3 or 6.4, you are all set.
