I am a true digital nomad, working from my home office. Cutting out commuting from my life proved to be an extremely rewarding experience. I can spend more time on things, that matter, giving all my attention to my clients.
I lived in Switzerland and the United States for couple of years, which experience helped me to perfect my inter-cultural communication skills. My family is bi-lingual, therefore English is my second native language. Besides Hungarian I also speak German and Latvian.

If you are still on Mautic 2.+, you should put yourself together and upgrade as soon as possible. There is really no reason to stay on the 2.+ infrastructure, unless you use old plugins, that are not any more available for M3. But eventually the pros of upgrading will outweighs the cons anyway.
M3 comes with a bunch of cool features, stability improvements. I know the fear of the “Something went wrong” headline after upgrading, so I created a tutorial, that guides you through step by step.
There are a bunch of good tutorials out there, I’m not saying, this is the best one. But maybe watching it on video helps you through the steps.
Under the video you’ll find all the commands I used for the upgrade. Enjoy.
Fix data migrations
sudo php /var/www/html/mautic/app/console doctrine:migration:migrate sudo php /var/www/html/mautic/app/console doctrine:schema:update --force sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/mautic/app/console cache:clear
Upgrade to 2.16.5 (If you haven’t yet)
cd /var/www/html/mautic sudo -u www-data php app/console mautic:update:find sudo -u www-data php app/console mautic:update:apply
Upgrade to PHP 7.3
sudo apt upgrade -y sudo apt install software-properties-common -y sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php sudo apt update -y sudo apt install php7.3 sudo apt install php7.3-common php7.3-mysql php7.3-xml php7.3-xmlrpc php7.3-curl php7.3-gd php7.3-imagick php7.3-cli php7.3-dev php7.3-imap php7.3-mbstring php7.3-opcache php7.3-soap php7.3-zip php7.3-intl -y
Edit your php ini file:
sudo nano /etc/php/7.3/apache2/php.ini short_open_tag = On memory_limit = 256M upload_max_filesize = 100M max_execution_time = 300 post_max_size = 64M
Activate your php 7.3 and turn off 7.1
sudo a2enmod php7.3 sudo a2dismod php7.1 sudo systemctl restart apache2 php -v
New db install
Backup your DB
mysqldump -u root -p --all-databases > all-db.sql psw: ysSmK3t87wyC
Remove old mariadb
sudo apt remove mariadb-server
Add new apt source
sudo apt install software-properties-common -y sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xF1656F24C74CD1D8 sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mariadb.list
deb [arch=amd64,arm64,ppc64el] http://nyc2.mirrors.digitalocean.com/mariadb/repo/10.4/ubuntu bionic main deb-src http://nyc2.mirrors.digitalocean.com/mariadb/repo/10.4/ubuntu bionic main
Update and install:
sudo apt update sudo apt install mariadb-server -y exit
Remove Non-compatible plugins:
cd /var/www/html/mautic/ sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/mautic/app/console mautic:update:find
Search for upgrade
(This step really depends on your installed and non-M3 compatible plugins.)
cd /var/www/html/mautic/plugins rm -R GautitClearcacheBundle/ rm -R MauticAdvancedTemplatesBundle/ rm -R SmsreaderBundle/
OR you can just move them out from this folder
mv /var/www/html/mautic/plugins/GautitClearcacheBundle /var/www/html mv /var/www/html/mautic/plugins/MauticAdvancedTemplatesBundle /var/www/html mv /var/www/html/mautic/plugins/MauticRecaptchaBundle /var/www/html mv /var/www/html/mautic/plugins/SmsreaderBundle /var/www/html
Install Mautic 3
sudo -u www-data php upgrade_v3.php
If you installed via composer originally, you’ll need to use this trick:
mv composer.json composer.json2 sudo -u www-data php upgrade_v3.php
If you get an error here, just make sure ownership and permissions are okay.
Then, let’s run the upgrade one more time:
sudo -u www-data php upgrade_v3.php
Look for new version (we just upgraded to 3.0) and update (to 3.+):
sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/mautic/bin/console mautic:update:find sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/mautic/bin/console mautic:update:apply sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/mautic/bin/console mautic:update:apply --finish
Set ownership and clear cache
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/mautic/ sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/mautic/ sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/mautic/bin/console cache:clear
Change your cronjobs from
If you would like to use the new Email Builder, go to plugins, click on install plugins and turn on the new builder.
You might need to log in and out before it’s actvated.
Let me know how did it go for you!
Now, that Mautic gives us the option to create super-responsive email templates, you might want to flex your design muscles and create your own. All you need is a bit of MJML language knowledge and a bit of affinity to design. MJML is super-easy, it is based on HTML and will allow you to create beautiful responsive email templates.More
There are some scenarios when you wish Mautic would have just a little bit more brain. Sometimes you are one step away from great marketing automation, íbut you would need to parse another database first to make your idea work. I have a workaround: I call it the conversion table.More
