1.0 Database Conversion Scripts

Please run ALL the scripts from your original version to the version to which you are upgrading. There are two sets of database upgrade scripts, one for MySQL and one for Oracle. Use the appropriate scripts for your database type.


3.0 Other Database Conversions

Sakai also includes data and schema conversions outside the standard scripts to address data integrity issues for assignments, content hosting, email archive and migration to GradebookNG (the new default Gradebook. Gradebook has been renamed Gradebook Classic as of Sakai 11). Below is a quick summary and overview of the process for each tool.

3.1 MailArchive conversion (2.5 -> 2.6)
3.2 Assignments Tool conversion (from a version earlier than 2.4)
3.3 A second Assignments Tool conversion (

titleAbout this page

This page is focused on upgrading from Sakai 11 to Sakai 12. Then it provides a link to the Sakai 11 upgrade information that you will need if you are upgrading first to Sakai 11. Do that first and then come back here for the final steps to migrate to Sakai 12.


Upgrading from an earlier version of Sakai typically involves a database conversion (for which scripts are supplied with the release), an update to custom skins and possibly changes to any custom code.
