I have read many, many posts in the Adobe forums from users who have skipped iterations of CF when upgrading (ie, going from CF7 to CF9, or CF8 to CF11, etc.)  It seems as though there are always problems.  I know CF Server isn't inexpensive.  But skipping one or more versions tends to lend itself to issues.  Often times, it's because of deprecated tags or tag attributes.  Sometimes it's because of changed default settings in CFAdmin, or other things that generally aren't considered when deciding to upgrade to a newer version.

One thing that is for sure, though.  There is a very good likelyhood of a lot of your CF8 code is going to go wonky (yes, that is the technical term) when run under CF11 or CF2016 (aka CF12).

I am unaware of any script that will automagickally migrate to your newer version.

V/r,

^_^

Thanks with your reply. I maybe ask my client to get VM's if possible to get test before doing full migration.

I'm not sure if the installer for ColdFusion 2016 (or 11 even) will automatically transfer settings from CF8 (it will for CF9+) when you install it on a machine already running a previous version of CF.  However, you can make a CAR file from CF Administrator to transfer settings.

However, there are so many new settings in CF2016 (especially with the new Secure Profile installation), you might be better off doing a clean install of ColdFusion 2016 on a new machine.  Then work through the Administrator settings screen-by-screen.

Try this first: http://wwwimages.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/products/coldfusion/pdfs/cf2016/cf2016-migration-guid... .  Just substitute ColdFusion 8 wherever you see ColdFusion 9.
