Upgrading to Liferay Portal

Upgrading to Liferay Portal consists of two main steps: upgrading your installation and then upgrading the database. Liferay Portal can be upgraded using a straightforward process. To upgrade to the latest release directly, you must be coming from Liferay Portal 6.0.12 or higher.

If you’re on Liferay Portal 6.0.11 or below, you should upgrade to Liferay Portal 6.2 before approaching an upgrade to the Liferay Portal CE 7.0 platform. Please see the Upgrading to Liferay Portal 6.2 article for information on upgrading to Liferay Portal 6.2 first.
