TYPO3 smooth migration from 4.5 LTS to 6.2 LTS

8 Nov 2013

Smooth Migration

A lot has changed between TYPO3 LTS 4.5 and LTS 6.2. Many methods, a few viewhelpers and constants have been deprecated. The core now uses namespaces and your extensions should too. Files can now be stored and accessed using the File Abstraction Layer.

Just upgrading an existing 4.5 installation to 6.2 may give you some problems due to your extensions not being up to date. The smooth migration project is here provide documentation and find problems and fixes for the migration.

To ease the transition, the smoothmigration extension can alert you to problems in your extensions. It even provides automatic code migrations for some of the problems it found.
