    TS3 Server update from v3.0.13.6

    Hi All,

    I'm looking to update our Teamspeak 3 server, and seeking some guidance on how far we can update.

    We are currently running v 3.0.13.6.

    Based on some plugin compatibility, our clients are all running v3.1.10.

    Our NPL is valid until Tue Apr 2 00:00:00 2019, and was re-issued this year.

    How far forward can I update without running into licence trouble and/or database trouble, as I really can't have us losing our permissions/channel setup and we really can't have any downtime.

    Would it be possible to have the new server set up as a copy initially as a test, and would this pose any data risk to the old server?

    Thank you!

    The answers to such questions are

    "you can update to the latest server version"
    "you just need to backup your database"
    "running a copy of your server is not allowed"
    "we are not giving support for outdated server or clients"

    How to update the server and make a backup


    Hope above covers all your questions.

    Thank you for the response.

    Can you clarify what you mean regarding the copy not being allowed?

    The NPL is issued to a specific static IP, and hosting from another server would be a different IP.
    At least that is my take on the term 'server copy'

    My recommendation is to, in this order:
    - backup your database (this is where things like channels and user perms are stored, and is compatible with the newest server version with no issues, so you won't be starting from scratch)
    - save a copy of the old teamspeak server files of yours (or attempt to re-download it if you choose to go back)
    - replace old server files with new
    - be sure to include the license accepted file
    - ensure you have proper [database].ini and [ts3server].ini, and blacklist/whitelist
    - ensure you have proper so.2 in the root folder of the TS3 server (mariaDB compatibility)
    - add your old logs to logs folder (if desired)
    - add any necessary license.dat file
    - start your server

    Only issue I personally have during this process, is my server icons are not transferred over, so I must re-upload them.
    I'm sure they are in a file somewhere, but I can't find it D:

    Some of my terminology may be wrong, but overall this should give you enough of an idea of where to go and what to do.

    Roger that. No all I meant was to have a folder say "new teamspeak" alongside "old teamspeak" in on the same server, so that I can easily boot the old exe back up, should I need to.

    Does that make sense?

    With copy i mean you are not allowed to run a copy of the server at the same time.
    Does not matter where it is hosted.

    Sure you can make a backup of the server first and try out the new one and in case you can use the backup again.
    But not at the same time!

    Not at the same time, of course not. But so long as the server won't freak out having the backup there (not running), that's all good with me.

    Regarding what SharpY was saying, is there a solution to transfer icons across? We have a great many and I don't much fancy re-creating them every time we upgrade.

    Why do you recreate them each time? That makes no sense.

    I was referring to the below report from SharpY - are icons able to be migrated into a new server when upgraded or would I have to re-upload them?

    Create a full backup of the server's working directory. Minus logs, of course.

    I found the necessary path for the icons and where they are stored.

    [...]/files/virtualserver_[1]/internal/icons

    Anything in '[ ]' can vary depending on where it is saved and which virtual server it is stored on/used on

    Why do you make it so complicated? Just backup entire files directory.
