• The first and very important step is – data backups. You need to first take the backup of your existing vTiger CRM database and file structure. The way Migration/Upgrade works in such a way that it can overwrite the existing file and also update the database. So the backups are the most important and crucial part. There is no way to revert back from new version to old version.
• Second step is downloading the vTiger CRM 6.0 Upgrade/Migration. You need to click on the below mention link to download vTiger CRM 6.0
