Data Upgrades

In certain circumstances you may be required to run a data upgrade to convert specific LearnDash data sets.  You will only be required to run a data upgrade if…

  • LearnDash support requests that you run an upgrade, or;
  • you receive an admin message prompt on your WordPress dashboard indicating the specific upgrade that needs to be run.

To run an upgrade, simply click the button and a progress bar will appear to indicate the status of the upgrade. It is important to let the update run uninterrupted until the progress bar reaches 100%. Afterwards, you can perform other actions from your dashboard.

The possible data upgrades are:

  • Upgrade User Course Data
    Converts the course progress into the Activity database tables. This is used for ProPanel reporting.
  • Upgrade User Quiz Data
    Converts the quiz attempts into the Activity database tables. This is used for ProPanel reporting.
  • Upgrade Course Meta
    Upgrades the course meta elements.
  • Upgrade Quiz Questions
    Creates the new Question post type from the legacy ProQuiz. Required to use Quiz Builder.
  • Convert Course Access Lists
    Converts the course access list setting to user meta for more efficient management.
  • Rename WPProQuiz DB Tables
    Renames the existing WPProQuiz database tables to a new name inline with LearnDash standards.
