before i get started upgrading, wanted to confirm the upgrade process is still the same as it was for 1.1? upgrade topic references upgrading to 1.1, so wanted to verify. Also I was kinda hoping upgrading would get easier ;)

I had updated that topic for 1.2. I'm confused about how my modifications disappeared. Investigating. Yes, the process is the same.

i just noticed also that the description on this page http://orchard.codeplex.com/ says that 1.1 is the latest too.

OK, I had to rewrite the topic. It's done. There is a simplified in place method that you may want to try. I also updated the CodePlex home page. Thanks for the heads up. Not sure what happened there.

Thanks. The update in place method works well for me, but you might want to add this:

-if you have url rewriting rules on the site, you will need to re-add them (or make a backup of your base web.config and copy them into the new one)

-(this may be unusual) I copy files from my local machine to the server, so when I do this it can reset permissions on the files. May need to go re-add the iusr perms.

Good points. I added a warning section to the beginning of the document.
