Upgrade Passbolt from v1 to Pro on the same server
This tutorial covers the case where you want to upgrade your current instance of passbolt CE v1.x into Passbolt Pro on the same server.
If you want to use a new server, follow this link.
Passbolt is reported to work on a large variety of operating system configurations. Therefore this help page is a generic guide that should work for most environments.
If you run into any issues with your particular configuration, please check the forum. Maybe someone else has had your issue. If not, make a post and the community will try to help you.
- Any Unix-like major distribution (Debian, Centos, Ubuntu, *BSD)

Upgrade to Passbolt Pro
In the following examples we assume you are running passbolt CE v1 using apache in the
directory. You will need to replace these values with your local environment settings.
1. Make sure you have the latest v1.x version
If you do not have the latest version, please follow the regular v1 udpate process. We’ll also assume you have a web server that match the system requirements.
/var/www/passbolt$ cat app/Config/version.php | grep number 'number' => '1.6.10'
2. Take your site offline
There are multiple ways of doing that, the simplest is sending a notice by email to your users and stopping your webserver. The better approach would be to create a temporary html file and redirect your passbolt user there.
3. Download Passbolt Pro
Open a shell with the same user as your web server user. (usually, www-data for apache, nginx for nginx)
/var/www$ su -s /bin/bash www-data
Replace the previous passbolt by the new version.
/var/www$ mv ./passbolt ./passbolt_old /var/www$ git clone https://bitbucket.org/passbolt_pro/passbolt_pro_api.git ./passbolt
4. Install the dependencies
/var/www$ cd ./passbolt /var/www/passbolt$ composer install --no-dev
5. Copy the avatar folder
/var/www/passbolt$ cp -R ../passbolt_old/app/webroot/img/public/* ./webroot/img/public/. /var/www/passbolt$ mv ./webroot/img/public/images/ProfileAvatar ./webroot/img/public/images/Avatar
6. Configure Passbolt Pro
To configure Passbolt Pro, the easiest way is to use the in-built configuration wizard. Just point your browser to your passbolt url.
You will be greeted by a welcome screen. Click on the Configure with wizard option and follow the instructions.
7. Your server is now ready to run passbolt
Once you have followed all the steps of the wizard, Passbolt Pro is ready to run. You will be redirected automatically to the login page where you can log in.
8. Final step: modify the cron job to send emails
Modify the cronjob entry you had added for passbolt CE v1 :
* * * * * /var/www/passbolt/app/Console/cake EmailQueue.sender > /var/log/passbolt.log
into this one:
* * * * * /var/www/passbolt/bin/cake EmailQueue.sender > /var/log/passbolt.log
At this stage, Passbolt Pro should be working perfectly.
