Im planning to migrate my forum (1.2.4) to 1.5.2, i have a 24GB database with 15.000.000 of posts.
Any special consideration or steps to do ? i guess that is better update via CLI right ?


Thanks a lot

Yes, you would need to use the CLI upgrader.

Going up three second point releases is quite a big change so you will defintely need to check whether any third party styles and add-ons are compatible and if you need to do any preliminary work before upgrading XF.
XF first party add-ons can be upgraded after you have upgraded the core.

There's some information here related to upgrading to 1.3: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/how-to-upgrade-to-xenforo-1-3.2810/

1.4 and 1.5 have no major issues, but certain add-ons may conflict with the added functionality, such as tagging, profile post comment likes, etc.
There's some information related to 1.5 here: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-1-5-discussion-and-feedback.101111/

Thanks Brogan, i use a few add-ons and are updated to 1.5, following your recommendations i try to do first, a local upgrade to check that my custom styles still working in 1.5
