Upgrade Help

Trying to go from 2.3.3.5 (pretty sure) to the most recent version.

Server: Windows 2008

DB: MS SQL 2008

.net V4-4.5

Saved my user.config, updated my webconfig to use the machine key. Uploaded everything in the recommended order.

500 error

log shows nothing useful, just the standard medium trust startup error.

Changing custom error in web config to "off" yeilded nothing... still just getting a 500 error.

Trying to get some assistance from the webhost, they have prooved to be somewhat helpful in the past, but I don't have a lot of hope there.

Re: Upgrade Help

if you are hosted in medium trust you need to use our medium trust configuration you could start with our medium trust package, which is pre-configured for medium trust.

The only difference with our medium trust package is the web.config file has some differences and the AjaxControlToolkit.StaticResources.dll is deleted from the bin folder

So if you used the non-medium trust package you should update to use that web.config file and delete the dll mentioned.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: Upgrade Help

Joe,

 

about 99% sure that is the download I used.  That's at home, and I am not, however.

I'll look for that .dll in the bin, though.

 

//edit... yeah, no such file in the bin. Frustrating. I don't want to have to fall back to the previous version.

Re: Upgrade Help

you have not posted any error detail. I have no idea what you mean by standard medium trust error

Sorry...this

Not frustrated with you! My webhost was a bear trying to get Mojo setup the first time, which is part of why I haven't tried to update for many years.  But..  I just need to at this point.

 

hhmm... just noted there is no "application started" at the end, where there usually is.

Re: Upgrade Help

That error that is logged is not preventing the app from working, it just affects skins/theme settings.

Some other error must be happening and without knowing the error details I don't have any suggestions.

Re: Upgrade Help

webhost told me I had a corrupt web.config.  So downloaded the package again, replaced the machine key (which it looks like was the problem... I didn't paste it well), and re-uploaded.

 

Still no love :(

Re: Upgrade Help

I am happy to say that I am up and running thanks to the webhost support.  Shocking, I know... but I guess I got an agent who was knowledgable about mojo and once he got the errors turned on he knew right where to go in the web.config to resolve the issue.

 

turns out I am running in full trust, so I guess I need to re-upload some stuff.
