of course you can upgrade however id strongly suggest that if your code was written for CF10 that you put a staging server up first and put all your code on CF2023 and completely test end to end. You will likely have some changes in the code to make (maybe a little more) but that way your code will be ready and then you can do your upgrade. Of course, that assumes you wanted to upgrade on the same machine in place. If you are putting up new hardware anyway yes just test, as I've said you may have to update some code. Also, it depends on the OS you are using and the version. You don't mention what OS you are planning to install the CF2023 on.

Adding to Rick's helpful reply, I'll clarify for you also that as for cf itself, you don't "upgrade it". If you would install the new cf on a machine with an existing cf, the new cf would be installed alongside the old, in a new folder, with new services, etc.

 

And if the old cf was running when you installed the new, the new would have different ports than the old, like the cf admin port. (Since you're moving from cf10, note that since cf2016 cf is always implemented in such a way that the cf admin has a port, which defaults to 8500, rather than using no port (and thus routing to it via iis or apache)..

 

Finally, you would use the old version's cf web server configuration tool (wsconfig) to modify iis or apache to remove the connection of that to the old cf, then run the new cf version's wsconfig tool to connect the web server to the new cf.

 

I realize it can sound confusing and a lot of work, but it's really rather simple. As Rick said, the hardest part is testing your app and fixing any migration issues. For most folks, they could be rather few, even for that large a jump.

 

I've got a talk on such migration identifying such issues, available at carehart.org/presentations. And if you feel lost with the effort, I can help with any of it (other than testing your app), from planning things to implementing the new version, to dealing with migration issues. More at carehart.org/consulting.

 

Or we're here to help, to the degree issues can be solved here.

be aware i dont think that CF2023 is supported on Win2012 anymore. The OS itself is is going out of date in less than a few weeks - no more security updates or anything.
