Upgrade Steps

The same usual steps for upgrading WHMCS apply to Version 5.2. They are:

  1. Begin by taking a backup of your database using a tool such as phpMyAdmin
  2. Now download the latest WHMCS version either from our client area (http://wiki.whmcs.com/Upgrading#Downloading_the_Latest_Version) or from your web host license provider
  3. Next, unzip the contents of the WHMCS zip file download to a folder on your computer
  4. Now if you have customised your WHMCS admin folder name, you should rename the admin folder in the new files to match
  5. Upload the new files to your existing installation folder replacing any existing folders & files
  6. Visit the admin area as you normally would to login and you should then see the upgrade script
  7. Accept the license agreement
  8. If you are prompted for any database information *STOP*, this indicates the configuration.php file is missing and so a new install is being attempted - you need to restore the configuration.php before continuing.
  9. Tick to confirm once you have backed up your database, and then click the upgrade button
  10. Once the updates finish, delete the install folder from your server

These steps can be used to upgrade from any version of WHMCS from V3.3 & later.

Remember: After upgrading, your browser may still display cached versions of the previous files. So if you get any display issues or inconsistencies, always try clearing your cache first, both in your browser, and the WHMCS templates cache (templates_c folder files)

Release Notes

  • Display Problems/Browser Cache - Always clear your browser cache, or perform a hard refresh after upgrading, most display related issues are purely due to seeing an old version of the CSS
  • The Add Transaction permission is now required in order to apply payment to an invoice - previously access to Manage Invoices was also sufficient
  • The dbconnect.php file has been removed as of WHMCS V5.2 and so any custom files will require updating to include "init.php" and only "init.php", the current separate "functions.php" include will be handled automatically
  • In the viewinvoice.tpl template file the variable {$subscriptionid} has been changed to {$subscrid}
  • The ResellerClub domain registrar module now uses the API Key authentication method, replacing the account password. If using this module you will need to enter your API Key under Setup > Products/Services > Domain Registrars. Detailed instructions can be found on the ResellerClub page.
