Re: upgrade

Upgrading is much like installing, but there are a couple of other pieces that need to be taken care of. Recommended steps are:

  1. Back up your existing production database and file structure. For the database, make sure it's a true backup and not just an export--if you have to recover, you need the keys to remain the same in the DB.
  2. Open the new (local) web.config, and merge any changes you had made to the production web.config (machine key, etc.)
  3. Copy ALL of the new release files over the top of your production file structure, replacing all files
  4. Navigate to [yoursite]/setup to complete the database upgrade
  5. Make any skin changes as listed in the Important Skin Changes document
  6. If you are using a delivered skin, you can get the newest version of that skin from /Data/Sites/Skins/[skinname]. Copy it over the top of /Data/Sites/[site#]/skins/[skinname]

Re: upgrade

As far as getting files to your server, if you're in a hosted environment you'll need to figure out what is supported. Typically the file uploads are done via FTP. I'd recommend a solid, robust FTP client like FileZilla, so after a transfer you can confirm that everything transferred successfully. If the files really are extracted on the server already, there may be a file manager available in your hosting control panel. Remember to merge the web.config customizations before deploying the new version.

Re: upgrade

Hi,

What version of mojoPortal? Look under Administration > System Information for the version.

Most likely you need to upgrade your mojoPortal installation to be compatible with the latest Form Wizard.

Hope that helps,

Joe
