Same problems as reported in thread re: 404 after Upgrade to 1.4.1

may need more clarification on permissions for app pool user ... but directories have same permissions as with other orchard sites on this server ( not multi-tenant )

Isn't there some way to upgrade using Web Platform Installer to get bare-bones site deployed to IIS 7.5 ... then  copy files from legacy version to that upgrded directory installed via WPI ???

OP stepped thru instructions at as have I ...

Will go check logs ... but could there side effects due to my migration from to 1.4.2

Happy to schedule an IRC conversation.

Maybe you had the same problem as i had:

From what the logs are saying, the tenant can't even start. Seems to be caused by a version mismatch of sorts.

yes ... much hacking to get to admin .... but I find a mess when I get there .... cold this be an issue with using the Mango theme ???

but, seriously ... the upgrade roadmap ... why so many problems after I follow the step-by-step according to documentation ??

Are new instructions or tools for doing upgrade in the works ???

how might that happen ???  Version Mismatch ???   I am migrating from 1.3 to 1.4.2

I did go with Znowman's fix and that got me past the errors posted on skydrive ....

Will try the step-by-step again ... but please advise on revised roadmap for doing upgrade ..... has team been looking into these issues before my incident report ???

Modules. We can't know what modules you have installed. Some of them may be the wrong version, or may be incompatible with 1.4.

Are you sure you copied all your custom modules to the new source modules folder and skipped copying all files which already exists in the new 1.4.2 modules folder? Maybe you copied everything the other way around or something or not overwritten the files with the older ones. I've had done 4 Orchard site upgrades from 1.3 to 1.4.2 but had only minor problems.

Bertrand ... thank you for the admin tip ... there really needs to be documentation for simple ( I'm using Web Matrix ) conversions ...

  • Clear ponters to go to admin and perform 1.4.2 upgrade process ...
    and yes to get to be able to even get to admin ... needed to add code to the pagelist module ...per znowman ...

not n production yet .. but visible .... all links working ...

We have instructions on the upgrade process to 1.4 in the release notes:

The documentation, like all of Orchard, is open source and accepts contributions.
