Upgrade Error

I upgraded from 2.3.5.4 to 2.3.6.7 and migrated to dotnet 4.0.  I backed up my site and my database, upgraded the server to dotnet 4.0.  Changed the IIS settings to they would be 4.0 as well.  Overwrote the files with the files in mojoportal-2-3-6-7-mssql-net40-deploymentfiles.zip and ran the setup/default.aspx page.  I didn't get any errors during the upgrade but now I am getting the error below when I try to load the page.  Any ideas?

 

Server Error in '/' Application.

Re: Upgrade Error

It sounds like not all of the files got updated, in this case specifically it seems you don't have the latest version of /App_GlobalResources/Resource.resx

Try re-uploading that file from the package. 

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: Upgrade Error

I don't see that file in the directory you mentioned in the zip file mojoportal-2-3-6-7-mssql-net40-deploymentfiles.zip.

Re: Upgrade Error

I'm extracting again.  It appears to be there now.  Very odd.

Re: Upgrade Error

The site is missing a lot of images now and the content doesn't line up.  http://www.motormastersnj.com/

Re: Upgrade Error

Hi Dave,

Make sure you read the notes in the "Important Skin Changes" thread.

Before upgrading, you should always read over the release notes and check the skin changes thread.

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: Upgrade Error

Thanks guys.  I reset all the skins to default and that fixed the issue.  I think I'm going to leave them as default from now on.  Everything else looks good.
