upgrade mojo from version 2.3.3.4 to 2.3.9.8 (MSSQL platform)

  Hello,

    Please advice me how to do successful the upgrade from version 2.3.3.4 to the last one

    Some questions:

     1) database structure is changed? if yes, how to keep my db data?

      2) i use FCKEditor for Edit contents. should i switch to CKEditor?

      3) the new deployment package can be hosted on Azure Server?

      4) the settings related to "AllowMultipleSites" are kept? i'm using different folders for each interface so i need it

      5) also the setting allows you to force specific cultures for specific sites?

   Thank you

Hi,

See the article Upgrading From Previous versions

1. yes the database schema does get modified but there should be no data lost, it does not delete data. Only thin is we no longer support mssql 2000 so make sure your database is sql 2005 with all service paks or a higher version..

2. Yes you should change to CKeditor, FCKeditor is legacy and no longer included with mojoPortal

​3. Your old version did not support Azure, a fresh new install does support it but I'm not so sure about migrating an older database that was upgraded to sql Azure. It should probably work but I would not do any migration at the same time as upgrading. I would upgrade first in traditional hosting, make usre everything is working well, then do a trial deployment to Azure and test again.

4. As long as custom <appSettings are stored in user.config instead of Web.config you will not lose them because user.config is not touched during upgrade. You must use the new web.config file and transfer any customization such as machine key from the old one to the new one.

5. Again, if you follow the recommended way and put those setting sin user.config you don't have to worry about them during upgrades.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: upgrade mojo from version 2.3.3.4 to 2.3.9.8 (MSSQL platform)

Hello Joe,

Thank you for your response!

I follow installation steps and seems that database is ok.

I have some problems:

1) horizontal menu does not display children items. I cannot see <ul> element inside each <li> for root pages(like i see in the previous version)

2) where should i copy the files from folder "App_DesignTimeStyle"? i see that we haven't this folder in the new version

3) i have 2 sites(one for english and one for french interface). Both have the same skin "customskin". But for english interface seems that the design is broken (in firebug i see that the style are not loaded; no csshandler.ashx reference). For French is ok. i missed some configurations?

i use folders mapping.

<add key="UseFoldersInsteadOfHostnamesForMultipleSites" value="true" />

4) i noticed that you haven't resources for French. can i get from somewhere?

Please help me,

Thank you!

comment for my last post:

on point 3) i noticed that builded .ashx path is not working

i cannot see the content for

<link href="/en/csshandler.ashx?skin=customskin&amp;s=7&amp;v=2.3.9.8&amp;sv=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

Re: upgrade mojo from version 2.3.3.4 to 2.3.9.8 (MSSQL platform)

Hi,

1. See Important Skin Changes and apply any needed changes since your previous version.

2. That folder is not needed, it was only for use in Visual Studio and it doesn't really work.

3. The handler mapping for csshandler.ashx is listed in Web.config and generally the file should not need to actually exist on disk but in some hosting environments these mapping are ignored and the file needs to exist. So I suggest copy the csshandler.ashx file from the root into your en folder

4. We moved additional language resources into a separate download on the codeplex download page. 

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: upgrade mojo from version 2.3.3.4 to 2.3.9.8 (MSSQL platform)

Hello Joe,

1. it was because of new property from SiteMenu control "TopLevelOnly" . i set the "false" value and it's ok.

2. ok

3. i noticed that design is fixed when i remove my ISAPI references. I'm using Isapi for rewrite some url's. i should change some configurations in this case? i need isapi. my site is hosted on IIS7, net4, integrated, apppoolidentitty. Maybe my settings for website are wrong?

4. ok

Please advice me for IIS7 configuration

Thank you
