Hi Forum,
I have an old Win XP based 5.1.0b installation (SugarCRM Service), I would like to update to a new 6.5.17 CE version. If possible , id like to change the server platform to a linux system.
Therefore the first question is, how can I migrate the data to the new database/sugar version,  after then id like to migrate all to a linux installation.
What is the quickest or easiest way to to so ? Can I use the admin->backups option to backup the old data and imort it to the new version ? maybe the import can not migrate data from 5.1.0b... if not, I have to update the datastructure first ....
thanks a lot for you hints....
