An end user wants to upgrade his v6.12 on premises system (DocuWare Business Server) to v7.5 in hopes of eliminating any security issues in his currently installed DocuWare Database (MySQL).

Can we be assured that the upgrade will bring the MySQL DB up to current standards?

Also the current server is Windows Server 2012 Standard, not R2 as listed in the system requirements. Does this server OS need to be updated? Can it be updated?

Otherwise running the 7.1 installer and then the 7.5 installer would make this a relatively easy job.

Any clues appreciated,

Hi Steve, 

as the system requirements stated, Server 2012 is no longer supported (neither by DocuWare nor by Microsoft). If the customer is worried about security issues, they need to Upgrade the OS anyways because there will be no security patches by MS anymore after Oct 10, 2023.

The DocuWare Update does not change the database at all as far as I know. If you want to update your database server, you need to do that separately from DocuWare. 

Hope this helps.
