How to Upgrade to Codeanywhere v7

Ready to upgrade to Codeanywhere v7?

Follow this straightforward guide to transition with ease and manage your data transfer using GitHub.

Step 1: Activate Your New Plan

  • Go to app.codeanywhere.com and register using your preferred method.
  • Select and activate the plan that suits your needs.

Step 2: Backup Your Data

  • Direct data transfer to v7 is not available, so you must back up your data first.
  • The best way to do this is through a Git service like GitHub.

Step 3: Data Transfer via GitHub

Push Your Data to GitHub

  • In your existing Codeanywhere workspace, push your data to a GitHub repository. For this, you can use the user interface or simply open the terminal.
# Add remote repository as origin
git remote add origin <repository_url>

# Stage all changes
git add .

# Commit changes
git commit -m "Backup data"

# Push changes to GitHub
git push origin master  
  • For instructions on this process, refer to GitHub’s guides on remote repository commits.

Pull Data into Codeanywhere v7

  • In the new version, create a workspace by providing the URL of your GitHub repository.
  • This action clones the repository and sets up your workspace with the data from GitHub.
# Clone the repository
git clone <repository_url>  

After setting up on Codeanywhere v7, contact us to deactivate your old account, completing your transition.


If you encounter any issues during the upgrade process, here are a few common problems and their solutions:

  • If you receive an authentication error while pushing or pulling data, ensure that you have the correct credentials and permissions.
  • If the workspace creation process fails, double-check the URL of your GitHub repository and try again.

If you encounter any other issues, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team via email for assistance.


Upgrading to Codeanywhere v7 is a seamless process when following these steps. By activating your new plan, backing up your data, and transferring it via GitHub, you can smoothly transition to the new version and continue your work without interruption.

Should you have questions or require assistance, don't hesitate to reach out via email.

We look forward to your continued work on Codeanywhere v7!
