While the update to Avada 6.0 is a massive one in terms of feature set, behind the scenes, it’s pretty much just a regular update. There are no conversions required, and it is a standard update with no special steps.
As usual, you should, of course, have a full backup of your site before updating, and if you are updating from older versions, please read the Updating Avada From Older Versions document.
Do not attempt to update directly to Avada Live if you are on any version prior to 5.0. For versions older than this you will have to perform an incremental upgrade.
We recommend you keep your site fully up to date with every version. This will ensure there are no security problems from unpatched issues, and always allow a smooth upgrade process.
