If you're already running an earlier version of Variations, select one of the two choices below to move to 6.0.

  • How to Migrate to Variations 6.0 - New Install - If you want to migrate your content and configuration to a new installation and require users to install a new client for continued access.
  • How to Migrate to Variations 6.0 - In Place - If you want to keep the old server running alongside the new server for awhile, to minimize downtime and allow gradual client upgrades. This option also allows you to keep your old content and relevant configuration.
