The migration is not fully automated, it is based on import/export:

  • In Plone 4.3, reinstall Plomino so it is on 1.19.6
  • In your Plomino db Design tab, you will get a new export format ("To Json File (Migrate to Plomino 2)"), it will allow you to export your db design in a Plomino2 compliant JSON format
  • In your Plomino Replication tab, you will get the same so you can export your db documents in a Plomino2 compliant JSON format
  • Now you have to delete your existing db (yeah I know, it sounds scary)
  • Update buildout to Plone 5
  • Before running the upgrade to Plone 5, reinstall Plomino so it is on 2.0b6
  • Upgrade to Plone 5
  • Create a blank db to replace your old db
  • Click on the 'Design' portlet heading link. Click on the Import/export tab, and import the json file.
  • In the portlet, click Import/export under 'Database' and import the all-documents.json file
