Upgrading Passwordstate from version 8 to version 9

Recommended Posts

Please see this upgrade guide which shows the complete process to upgrade from version 8 to version 9: https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/version9/Upgrade_Instructions.pdfBefore attempting the upgrade, we recommend checking you meet the system requirements which can be found here before you upgrade:  https://www.clickstudios.com.au/passwordstate-system-requirements.aspx


Upgrading from Passwordstate 8 to 9, being a major version update, is a two part process:


Part 1:

  • Download version 8995 source files on your web server and install them
  • Log into Passwordstate to complete the database portion of the 8995 upgrade
  • At this point you will have a fully functional instance of Passwordstate running build 8995


Part 2:

  • Download the latest version 9 source files on your web server and install them
  • Log into Passwordstate again to complete this version 9 database upgrade
  • Process complete


All sources files are linked in the above document, and any future upgrades will only require you to download the latest Version 9 source files and run those. If you have any other modules installed separately such as the Self Destruct Website, AppServer or maybe even the Browser Based Remote Session Launcher, please see the Upgrade Matrix in Section 12 of the Upgrade document linked above to find out if they also need updating, after you have completed the upgrade of your core Passwordstate website.


After upgrading to Version 9, we have a new Backup Feature that is slightly different to the backup feature in Version 8.  If you are currently using the backup feature, you’ll need to revisit the settings and configure accordingly. Version 9 can be backed up to a local folder with a local Windows account, or to a network share with a domain account.  We have two separate guides for this and following one of these should help you get set up:

Also, in one of the later version 9 builds, we support Unicode characters, and this can grow your database in size by 300 – 400 %.  Please see Section 11 in the Upgrade document linked above, to get advice on about how to handle this database growth before, and after you upgrade.  This database management recommendation by us is only applicable to this upgrade attempt, and any future upgrades do not require this process to be followed.
