Database Version Upgrade

If you are migrating from an older version of the system to a newer version, e.g. from version 3.2 to 4.1, or if there are certain updates to the way the data is written to the database, it is necessary to upgrade the version of the database.

When you try to log in to the system, you will see the warning below:

Figure 1: Database upgrade warning

Just as the notice says, the EBA DMS system administrator can initiate the update from the Tools>Settings menu. Select the link for which you want to update the database and click on the Update Database button.

The system will ask us to log in, enter the username and password of a user with administrator rights and start the database upgrade.

The system will automatically log all users out of the system, the system cannot be used during the upgrade time. The duration of the database upgrade depends on the size of the database.
