Your problem
My problem is: I want to upgrade mautic 2.16.3 to mautic 3 via console cli.

I have more than 10K contacts and getting the error message of
"===== STARTING MAUTIC 3 UPGRADE AT 2020-07-23 00:48:24… =====
Installed Mautic version: 2.16.3
PHP version: 7.3.14-1~deb10u1
OS: Linux
Upgrade type: CLI

Doing pre-upgrade checks…
One or more warnings occurred during pre-upgrade checks, please run this script with the --ignore-warnings flag to continue:

  • You have 10000 or more contacts in your system. We recommend upgrading by using the CLI (command line) for the best performance and stability.

Steps I have tried to fix the problem: I couldnt resolve the problem with the commands:
php --ignore-warnings upgrade_v3.php
php upgrade_v3.php

Appreciate your help.

try writing this:
sudo php upgrade_v3.php --ignore-warnings

Dear mikew,
Thank you for your answer.
Not it is working.

@yourrfriend thanks for posting here. What @mikew mentioned should indeed work (sudo shouldn’t even be necessary in most cases). You could also try php upgrade_v3.php -i, which does the same as --ignore-warnings but might work for you.

If you are really stuck, you could open upgrade_v3.php in your file editor and remove line 750 (marked below). This will prevent the script from stopping regardless of whether you are running it with or without the --ignore-warnings flag. The script will remove itself after the upgrade anyway, so you can safely edit it without introducing security risks.

@dennisameling thank you for your answer. i did with the --ignore-warnings. Upgrade process went smoothly without any error and it took very short time with more than 2M contacts and lots of custom fields.
Appreciate your help.


That’s great to hear! Thanks for reporting back! :rocket:
