Note: If you are using Odoo version 8 and want to migrate to the latest version 15, you will first need to migrate to version 9, 10, 11, and so on. These steps are for migrating from Odoo version 8 to version 14.

Step 1: Firstly, download all required OpenUpgrade modules from here.

Step 2: Make a copy of your original database and use it as a migration database.

Step 3: Go to OpenUpgrade’s local directory of the version you want to migrate in, in this case it is v9 and later, then start Odoo server as we start for our normal database with –u all parameters.

Ex; python3 ./odoo-bin –addons-path=addons –db-filter openupgrade_test -d openupgrade_test -u all

Step 4: You will see a migration script running in the log, check for the errors if any.

Voila! Now you have successfully migrated to version 9. Repeat the same steps till you reach your required or latest version i.e. version 14/15. Once, you have migrated to version 14/(your required version), follow the below mentioned steps:

Step 5: Once you have migrated and successfully run the script, open the database from the browser.

Step 6: Please check that all the important data [SO/PO/Customer/Company/Invoices] are the same as the old invoices.

Step 7: Check any functional flow for other errors.

Step 8: If there are no errors, clean up the old or extra data generated in the migration process. To do so, download the Database cleanup module from here, and clean the extra data from the database.
