As i know there are some breaking changes >1.3 Orchard versions. How can i fix those changes. Is there any direct patch or scripts or any tools to upgrade 1.8 without loosing data?

Hi,

I understand that.

Why not download a copy of your orchard website from Azure, open it using Microsoft Web Matrix and start doing the upgrades version by version. I have successfully upgraded one of orchard site from v1.4 to 1.8.

step-by-step upgrading
1.3 -> 1.4 -> 1.4.2 -> 1.5 -> 1.6.1 -> 1.7 -> 1.7.3 -> 1.8.0

Best
