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.
