ColdFusion 9, 10, 11, and 2016 release, easily migrate to ColdFusion (2018 release). For details on migrating to ColdFusion (2018 release), visit the ColdFusion migration resources section of the ColdFusion Developer Center.

I don’t know why Anit is saying it’s “not possible” to update from 8 to 2018. It’s certainly “possible”. I have 2 current clients who’ve just made the move.

Of course it’s a little more work than moving from 9–which is itself a bigger jump than from 10.  A move from 10 or above is easier.

Of course, some migrations are far easier than others. Just depends on the coding used.

I suppose Anit may be referring to what the migration guide covers, and fair enough. I just wanted to clarify things, as I don’t see any particular reason why one MUST update to 10 first.

Finally, I’ll say that I and others can help folks making that move. See my list of troubleshooting consultants at https://www.cf411.com/cftrouble.

(I see that two people asked about 8, and Anit a has answered them each individually with the same answer. As I wanted to offer a counterpoint (to both), I’m posting this as a new comment rather than duplicating a reply to each.)

Its not possible to migrate from CF8 to CF2018. You can migrate from CF8 to CF10 and then CF10 to CF2018, as a workaround.
