I have a Perch 2.8.14 site that I want to upgrade to Perch 3 is there anything special that has to be done

  • I want to upgrade from 2.8.14. Is there anything special that has to be done to make the Perch 3 work correctly other than swapping out the core file. I need to get my events working again, and they aren't.


  • If you have not seen this, here are the instructions https://docs.grabaperch.com/perch/upgrading/

    My experience is that it is better to upgrade to the latest version of Perch 2 first before upgrading to Perch 3. That means upgrading to 2.8.34 and checking that works. That's what I would do.

    I would do this on a testing/staging server and back-up everything including database before you start.

    One other note: You mentioned events, is that the Events App? If Yes, it's not been updated in some time so I would definitely upgrade Perch stepwise as above and on testing server if that's the case.
