Movable Type Upgrade Service

Keep your movable type installation upgraded!

Keeping your movable type installation upgraded is extremely important!

An upgrade brings you not only bug fixes and new features, but from time to time also security patches.

This movable type upgrade service is designed for upgrading your installation to the latest version of movable type 6th series (v6.8.7) and the movable type 7th series (v7.9.5).

Upgrade to the most secure version!

Badly-intentioned people are constantly expanding their attacks. What's lovely about movable type is that security releases are made available right after Six Apart discovers vulnerabilities. During 21 years of continuous Movable Type development, one single time hackers were quicker than Six Apart and exploited a vulnerability. Right after that incident Six Apart released a security patch.

It is strongly recommeded that any movable type installation is upgraded either to v6.8.7 or to movable type v7.9.5, both released on August the 24th, 2022.

What would you get?

  • Checking your movable type open source or movable type professional installation templates;
  • Inventorying all the plugins or hacks you're using;
  • Proposing the best version you should upgrade to and the reasons why you should do that;
  • Upgrading your movable type installation files to the agreed version;
  • Upgrading your plugins and hacks to the latest version;
  • Upgrading your templates to match the latest product improvements;
  • If there is the need, porting custom fields from various plugin solutions to the movable type custom fields native feature.

Are there any risks?

There are no risks, because we would backup your installation before and after performing the upgrade. Having backups would allow us to restore your installation within minutes if there is any problem. While we do backups as part of our quality assurance policy, you may like to know that we never had to use them to restore an installation.

Is there any down time?

There is no downtime at all! Your site pages would be available during the upgrade. Because we want to serve you as good as possible, we would have the movable type admin not available to your editors for as low as 2 to 3 minutes at the time that we could agree together.

Which installations could be upgraded?

Virtually all installations could be upgraded, no matter if you currently running v2.x, v3.x, v4.x, v5.x, v6.x or v7.x.

Who needs our services?

  • Organizations running a business installation based on movable type advanced or movable type enterprise;

  • Media companies that want to upgrade their customers' movable type installations.

No matter who you are and what version of the product you're using, we would be delighted to upgrade your installation at very high quality standards.

How much would you pay?

The movable type upgrade service costs:


If you're running a very complex installation with many blogs, or if you're using custom fields based on obsolete plugins, porting and upgrading your data would cost a little bit more, but nothing to be afraid of.

Payments can be made via paypal, transferwise, skrill, wire transfer, checks or other payment solutions.
