You might have to refactor your code to use the updated API's(Check [1]) but as far as content is concerned, the upgrade will not change anything under the "/content" directory.

That being said, Repository was restructured in AEM 6.4 and most of the folders from /etc were moved to either /conf or /apps or /content. Please check [2] and make sure you update the location for workflows/tags/clientlibs

It is recommended to follow the official documentation at [1]

Other Best practices I could think of:

- Make sure you run all the pre-upgrade and maintenance tasks before the upgrade.

- Watch the upgrade.log while running content migration and check for any errors. You should not proceed till you observe no errors.

- When starting the AEM instance for the first time after replacing the jar, tail the error.log to check for any errors.

- Log a Daycare ticket if you are not able to figure out the errors on your own.

Hi Jaideep,

Thanks for sharing the documentation. Have few queries :

  • Will migration from lower to higher version, will affect any existing set up services for existing Content support team ?
  • Will Content authors/Publishers has to do some updates or changes during or after this migration ?

Looking forward to your response.

Thanks

Piyush
