CrushFTP 6/7/8/9 Upgrade to CrushFTP 10:#

1.) Register your CrushFTP 10 license key within your current version at the admin>>about tab.

2.) Copy over your users folder, prefs.xml, ssh private keys, and ssl keystores files from the old version to the new version's folder (see Critical Post Update Items below).

  • Do not replace your WebInterface folder, the CrushFTP 10 WebInterface folder is very different, and replacing it with the older folder would break CrushFTP 10.

3.) Check on Services.msc under what exact OS user is the CrushFTP service running.

4.) Run CrushFTP 6/7/8/9 and click 'Remove Daemon / Service'. Alternatively you can run CrushFTP v10 and use its button to remove the service too.

5.) Make sure you have the "Java" folder in the CrushFTP v10 folder. OpenJDK13+ is recommended. Follow the readme.txt file in the CrushFTP folder.

6.) Run CrushFTP v10.

7.) Click "Start Temporary Server". The server will now be running and ready for use as long as you keep this window open.

8.) Login using the web browser to your server using your normal 'crushadmin' user. Go to the Admin, About tab and enter in your CrushFTP 10 license code if not registered on your prior CrushFTP version, from previous steps.

9.) Go back to the GUI window, and click 'Install Daemon / Service'

10.) Go to the services.msc and set the same user as you had on your prior CrushFTP 6/7/8/9 version, to run the CrushFTP 10 service. Restart the service for the changes to apply.

11.) Update any paths in the admin, Preferences for SSH keys or SSL keystores to point to your new CrushFTP 10 folder.
