Write Back Extreme: Upgrade guide 1.0.x to 1.1.0

///Write Back Extreme: Upgrade guide 1.0.x to 1.1.0

Before you can upgrade from 1.0.x to 1.1.0

With the release of 1.1.0 getting closer, we start to support new database platforms like Snowflake and PostgreSQL. For this to be succesfull we have to enable new php extensions on server side level. This guide will show you how to enable these extensions before you upgrading to WBE version 1.1.0.

Please note that with many webserver configurations these extensions are enabled by default. Check if they are enabled on your webserver already.

Step 1: Find out if the extensions f0r PHP are already enabled.

In order to check which extensions for PHP are already enabled run the following command on your webserver:

It should give you a list with several extensions for PHP.

You want to make sure these extensions are available and installed:

  1. odbc

What if these extensions are not yet in the list?

Please install them before you run the 1.1.0 upgrade package in the WBE Management Console! If you do not enable these extensions, the upgrade will fail and additional support might be needed.
