Upgrading to Liferay Portal

Upgrading to Liferay Portal consists of two 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.

Before you do anything, however, you should follow a pre-upgrade process of cleaning and normalizing your data. After that, you can prepare your system for the upgrade, and then finally run the upgrade process.
