Since this is my first post I first want to say thank you for mojoPortal, a great product.
I am running four sites on one mojoportal installation using host headers. One of the sites, not the main site, is running on port 81. This is configured under "Edit Bindings..." in IIS.
Wanted to upgrade from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199. After backing up database and website directory I used the "App_offline.htm" approach to take the site offline. Copied all the extracted files and folders from "mojoportal-2-3-7-0-mssql-net40-deploymentfiles\wwwroot" to the website directory. Set "DisableSetup" to "true" and visited "/setup/Default.aspx". Setup ran with no error messages and everything is ok.
Testing the four sites and they are working, but when I visit "Administration menu > Site List" two sites are missing from the list. These sites are working, but they are not on the list. These are the two newest sites and they are the only ones that have been created on the 188.8.131.52 release. The two others are created on the 184.108.40.206 release.
This is a testing server, so nothing critical, but I want to upgrade production servers also when I know why this happend.
Any tips on this?
I think I have made a mistake here in assuming it has to do with the upgrade. After restoring site and database from backup it still shows only two sites. Even when I reverted the virtual server to snapshot before upgrade. Database and site is on the same virtual server I use for testing. I think maybe it has been like this since a while ago, when I was testing how to move a mojoportal installation from one server to another, creating a new database and restoring backup from the database I was moving over the newly created database. I was moving it to this testing server and am still using that database. I rarely look at the Site List on this server, so that is why I assumed it had to do with the upgrade.
Sorry about this.
It should show all sites that exist in the mp_Sites table.
That table has four rows/sites, but the two rows corresponding to the sites missing from the list has nothing in the "SiteName" column. That is the only column missing something compared to the two other rows for the sites that show up in the list.
I`m gonna delete the site and database, install previous version, recreate four sites and try the upgrade again, just to see how it goes. I think this is maybe a rare case, since I tried moving an installation and restoring a backup over the database, that don`t need further investigation from you guys.
The site name is what it would show in the list, so the list probably has them but the link text is empty so there is nothing to click and you don't see it. I would populate the name field for those rows.
Maybe because I deleted the site title from Site settings so that it would not show up in the banner? Just a quick guess....
that may be why you did it, but I advise instead just remove the <portal:SiteTitle control from the layout.master of the skin and put names back into the database.
Oh yes it is, and it does not show when I remove the control. Thank you
and thank you for the beer! much appreciated.
