InterWorx version 6.14.2 was released to the IW6 Beta channel this morning (5-17-2023). This version removes the opt-in flag for updating to IW7. IW6 has been deprecated since the beginning of the year, and 6.14.2 marks the point where it is officially EOL.
This means that, once a server updates to 6.14.2, the server will then automatically update to IW7 when the next daily cron runs.
The above is a rough estimate and is subject to change, but should give an idea as to when the update may occur on your server, so as to avoid any surprises.
How it works
For most servers, no interaction is needed. Your server will update to 6.14.2 when that version reaches the update channel that the server is on. This removes the opt-in flag. If all of the pre-flight checks pass, when the next daily cron runs, the server will be updated to IW7.
Things to Know
As mentioned above, there is a pre-flight checklist that is addressed before the update to IW7 occurs. If any of the items on this checklist fail, the update will not happen. These items are:
