How to perform the conversion process to Scriptcase 9

For this Guide to perform the conversion process to Scriptcase 9 we use a Scriptcase V8 Server and a Scriptcase V9 Server both with the SQLite internal database and installed on Windows, but the Guide also applies to: Previous versions of Scriptcase (V5, V6, V7), Databases SQLite and Linux or MacOS operating systems.

Follow the steps below:

1. Locate the folder with the name “scriptcase” on the Server where the previous version of Scriptcase is installed. If Scriptcase9 was installed on a different server, the folder should be copied to the new server so that it is fully accessible at the time of the process.

4. Scriptcase manages our projects in an internal Database, being able to be in SQLite or MySQL.

If the previous installation was done using the default configuration, you must select the option “Same server”, otherwise you must choose the “Another server” option and enter the database server where it is located.

When selected, click “Convert” to continue.

5. In this screen you must select the Projects that you want to convert to Version 9.

For the projects that you want to make available on the new Server select the option “Convert” and for the projects that will not be available select the “Not” option.

Once you have chosen the projects to convert, click on “Convert” to continue.

8. The projects can be re-migrated as many times as necessary, only the steps detailed above should be followed and at the moment of choosing the projects two groups will appear: the first will show the projects that do not yet exist in the new server and the Second, the projects that have already been migrated.

In the second group select “Keep V9 project version” in case you do not want to migrate the project again or “Convert to V9 and overwrite project” in case you want to re-migrate the project.

For our example we have re-migrated the sc_tickets project and migrated sc_album and sc_news for the first time, so in the following image it is noticed that these two new projects and sc_tickets appear as we left it on our previous server.
