Thanks so much to the vtiger team for this maintenance release.

Just today, I started to investigate a problem with our email templates, only to discover that you have fixed it in this release.

I echo the sentiment of other above…Great job!

How do I install the patch if I am upgrading from 5.2.0 to 5.2.1? Do I just copy all the files over from the patch to the 5.2.0, and overwriting any existing files? Please let me know, thanks!

Hello

before doing the upgrade, I would like to know if the database has some changes (new tables, adding fields to tables, change of values).
The migration I am not successful because the provider on which I have the CRM tables in “mysam” and not allow me to turn them into “innodb” so I have to do a fresh install of 5.2.1 vtiger in a new database. If the database did not, however no change, I could copy the entire database in version 5.2 in the new database.
In your work?

Jonathan

Ciao

prima di fare l’aggiornamento, vorrei sapere se il database ha delle modifiche (nuove tabelle, aggiunta campi alle tabelle, cambio di valori).
La migrazione non mi è andata a buon fine perchè il provider su cui ho il crm ha le tabelle in formato “mysam” e non mi permette di trasformarle in “innodb” così sono costretto a effettuare una nuova installazione di vtiger 5.2.1 in un nuovo database. Se il db però non ha NESSUNA modifica, potrei copiare l’intero database della versione 5.2 nel nuovo database.
Secondo voi funziona?

Thank you for your fast response!

if I use the patch to do the upgrade, when I connect the first time the site of the crm, I run the migration wizard. At this point does not allow me to migrate properly, the problem that I had written before. So I thought to use the solution that I had written before. I might know the exact values that have changed in the table that I’ve written, so I can replace them by hand.
Thank you very much

The migration was fine, but i noticed that the e-mail variable box was not working in fr language (combo list empty) but was ok in english language, I can choose all variable from my modules. What is wrong in the other language ?

This new patch is greatly appreciated, but the upgrade patch should really have instructions in a short readme file.

@Asha

There are database changes besides the vtiger_version table right? It says all the users passwords have been reset to be the same as the username, ie:

User: admin
Pass: admin

Are there any other changes besides that?

I’m a newbie to CRM…I’ve tried Salesforce and looked at SugarCRM as well. vTiger is looking more and more like the best option out there. I really appreciate these blogs as a quick way to gauge the health of the platform. Things seem to be coming along well. One note on the blogs: it seems like you’ve got a lot of spam comments. If you haven’t already, try setting up the Akismet spam plugin to automate anti-spam activities. As one of your readers I would certainly appreciate it. I’m looking forward to learning more about vTiger. Thank you!

Sorry to wish you late guys, but it is really a great step forward. I remember last year the state was so bad when there were so many known issues in 5.1 and many of them were fixed in trac, but no easy way to use them.

Great Going, keep it up!!

Quick question with regards to upgrading from 5.2 to 5.2.1:

As there is no database change from 5.2 to 5.2.1, can I just install a fresh 5.2, and then import the database from a 5.2 database backup?

Regards,
–Wei

Asha:

Thanks. I installed a fresh 5.2.1, and imported the database from a 5.2 backup, and then change the version data in the version table. So far so good. Seems to be no issues.

hi, first of all thanks for the upgrade , its great!!

we are running vtiger 5.2.0 in a production system base on windows, it works well but we have somo issues solved with the new realease.

we want to upgrade but we don’t know exactly how to migrate because the windows file it seems as a new install package. Do you know how to upgrade ?

note, one sugetion to improve the funcionality:

when you add a calendar even you receive an email informing assistants about the meeting but this email its a aplain text email no a vcard standard invitation. if you send this as a calendar note you can integrate calendar entries with notes, outlook and other emails systems.
With the actual solution every participant have to add manually a calendar note in there own calendar.

thanks in advance

I need a web-based ‘directory’ of professionals. Each professional will have a unique profile, offering one or more services. Direct contact details will not be displayed, but will be recorded in the database.

Hi Asha, what is the way to upgrade from v5.0.3 to 5.2.1? Are there any difficulties?

thx

Guest

Asha,
I have a requirement where I want to create a module in vTiger which looks like the Contacts module, but instead of it referring to people it refers to Buildings.

In this way a building can be related to a Client or a Contact, but still has its own modules as Clients and Contacts do. Really it is a third major entity in the same way as the Clients and Contact tables are.

Have you heard of this kind of requirement before?
Cheers
Bernard

Hi Vtiger team,

My Hosting Server is Linux, But I can’t sign in admin.
I known my username & password, but it display some error, “You must specify a valid username and password.”

Hi Sivakumar,

There must be mismatch in your username and password for which you can not able to log in to vtigerCRM.The admin of the CRM can reset the password for any other user in CRM.

As you are saying you are not admin of the CRM then please send request to admin of the CRM, He should go to Settings > Users page,then to the detail page of your user and he can found the change password button.Click on that button and give the new password.

This is the only way to reset the password for non admin user. If admin user password is also lost then changes needed to be done in mysql.Please try the above way which I mentioned and let us know your observation.

Pratim
