I am not going to explain what the Netbox is. Here you can easily find the explanation and decide if is usable for you or not.

I am going to explain a little bit myself.
I am no Linux guy, nor the DBA, so the following set of articles that will help you to migrate from Netbox 2.5.8 to version 2.7.12 may not be the easiest and definitely not the only way to achieve it. So bear that in mind and enjoy.
