Updating Kohana Framework


Hello Everyone,

Please help, How can i update my Ushahidi version 2.7.4 Kohana Framework.
My Kohana version is 2.3.1, I want to update to v3.3.6.

Thanks a lot!


Currently that version of the platform is not being supported so there is not upgrade plan to Kohana. In addition Kohana is also not being maintained so upgrading would not get you much support.
Have you considered migrating your deployment to the latest version of the platform?

There are two options for deploying the Ushahidi platform

1.You can sign up for a deployment on http://ushahidi.com. There are currently three different plans available for you to choose from

• Individual, which is free: For a single user who wants to gather one type of data and visualize it.
• Team, which is $99/month: For small teams who want to collect data and surveys via multiple sources.
• Organization, which is $499/month: For teams who want to triage and respond in real-time to incidents.

For groups running social impact projects unable to afford the current pricing model, you can apply for a free responder plan here: https://www.ushahidi.com/plans/apply-for-free

2.You can download the software at no cost and host it on your own servers. You can download the code from https://github.com/ushahidi/platform. Instructions on how to install can be found here:https://www.ushahidi.com/support/install-ushahidi

In the event that you would like to have our team install and customise the software for you, you can fill in our solutions form here https://www.ushahidi.com/solutions


Hi Linda, Thank you Very Much for your feedback…your suggestions solved my problem…Thanks a lot!


Hi Linda, can i install Ushahidi version 2.7.4 on php7 platform? Can the platform and its functions still works?
I tried to run it in php7 but i got this error.


Hello Jude,

given the moment when that code was written and how PHP has evolved since then, that’s probably not going to be well supported.

You may try disabling PHP deprecation errors etc ( error_reporting in the PHP configuration ) and see how far you get.

There may be some modifications that need to be done in the code, we don’t know for sure. Unfortunately, that’s not something that we can commit to investigate or fix now.



Thanks David, i will try to disable php deprecation.


Hi David

Is it correct to say that

  • 2.7.4 will have no more updates and is at end-of-life?
  • Any new installation must be version 3.x.x if it is to be secure

Thanks very much


That’s pretty much correct @art .

Best regards
