Version Not Incrementing

I downloaded the latest version (2.4.0.9), and attempted to perform the update from 2.4.0.4.  There are no errors when completing the final setup, but the version number is not incrementing which leaves me wondering if the update succeeded as the setup page says it did.  Can anyone please provide a way to confirm that the update succeeded?

Re: Version Not Incrementing

does not appear that you upgraded, if the code was upgraded but not the db you would get a different message, and if the db was upgraded but not the code you would get a different message

please provide detailed steps that you took to upgrade the site

my best guess is you uploaded the files somewhere other than where you think you did and did not upload them to the site you are trying to upgrade or you uploaded them to the wrong place in your hosting environment

Re: Version Not Incrementing

I have performed upgrades multiple times in the past with no issues at all.  The steps are as follows:

  1. Download 2.4.0.9 update package from mojoportal.com/download
  2. Unzip package contents to Downloads folder
  3. Create zip file of original/existing website directory (for backup purposes)
  4. Copy contents of 2.4.0.9 unzipped folder, and paste into website directory selecting to merge and replace existing files
  5. Navigate to <domain>.com/setup/default.aspx
  6. Wait a few seconds for install to complete

Re: Version Not Incrementing

4. not specific enough

it should be upload the "contents" of the wwwroot folder from the extracted package into the root folder of the website, overwrite any existing files

Re: Version Not Incrementing

That is exactly correct.  I opened the unzipped package, hit Ctrl+A on the keyboard, opened the website root directory folder, hit Ctrl+V on the keyboard, and then selected to 'Copy and Replace' for all files.  Then, after waiting for the copy and replace to complete, I navigated to the setup/default.aspx.

Re: Version Not Incrementing

all I can guess is either you actually downloaded version 2.4.0.4 not 2.4.0.9 or you are not really pasting into the actual folder used by the site

Re: Version Not Incrementing

Is there any way that I can just send you a screen capture so that you can see what I'm seeing?  I have recorded everything after downloading the update files.

Re: Version Not Incrementing

screen capture isn't going to change anything

the site has not been updated with new files, it cannot be otherwise

I suggest double check IIS basic settings for the site to make sure you know what folder on disk is the actual root of the site, I think you are updating a copy or some other folder

Re: Version Not Incrementing

I have verified that the folder where all files are being pasted/replaced is the root folder for the web site.  There is no question what-so-ever that the files are being copied from the update package and pasted/replacing the files in the root web site directory.  I have even verified that the server Windows updates are all up to date, and have restarted the server and IIS twice.  Before reaching out to you, I also restored the backup copy of the web site, re-downloaded a new copy of the 2.4.0.9 update, and followed the update process exactly as outlined again just to be sure that it wasn't an issue with a file not copying correctly.

Re: Version Not Incrementing

it does not seem possible that the setup page output you posted came from an updated installation

are you sure your site is hosted on that server and only that server, ie could it be part of a web farm and some other node or a failover server that is not up to date is handling requests for the hostname/domain, could it have been moved to a different server and you are updating an older version where it is not actually running?

the code version is baked into the mojoPortal.Web.dll and if it were higher than the db version it would say schema needs upgrade, it will only say system is up to date it i matches the database version in the mp_SchemaVersion table and it would say 2.4.0.9

2.4.0.9 has been out since April and no-one else has had a problem.

I believe that you believe you are updating the installation whose setup page you are visiting, but the evidence suggests that is not so

Re: Version Not Incrementing

Our site is hosted on only one server which we lease from GoDaddy.  I am one of only two people (the other is the CEO) that has a login to this server, and the CEO wants nothing to do with logging in to this server.  There are no other sites hosted on this server at all, not even a development site.  I have been updating this same web site, following the same process for over 2 years without this kind of issue.  Outside of this job, I also maintain multiple other web sites with out any issues at all.

 

Is there a log file or anything else that I can review?  Is it possible to retrieve the download from another site, other than codeplex?  I really am looking for any option still available.  This update has been attempted at least a half dozen times now, and I even created a new admin user on the server to be absolutely sure that it wasn't a profile issue or anything else.  I mean it's a simple unzip, copy, paste, navigate kind of update (not exactly rocket science).
