Hello all, does anyone know the steps needed to upgrade from Coldfusion 11 to 18. I was told I could bypass the 2016 and install the 2018. Thanks
We were able to to do it *without* much issues. Our site uses old school cftag, a handful of cfc, and no cfscript. The one minnor issue I encounter was a cfform/cfc tag that implemented autosuggest that had been deprecrated as an out-of-box ColdFusion 2018 feature. I was able to find a work around by downloading and copying the required js files.
Other than that, most thing has been working as it should. But this one anecdotal experience and as they say ... actual mileage may vary.
Other than transfering folders/files from one server to another, there wasn't much involved. Our hands were tied because our internal IT department did not want to support Coldfusion anymore - especially once Adobe decided to end support for 2011. We opted to use Media3 as our host provider and they have been impressively responsive.
Hope this helps.
