OK I just let DiscountASP.Net install the 6th kick at this cat. I saved an old version of Orchard.Framework.dll and it was version 188.8.131.52. Now the version is 1.3.0 so it appears they upgraded their version of Orchard some time today. OK that's
all good because now I don't need to spend 40 minutes uploading the latest version via FTP on my slow connection.
Woo Hoo. Everything works as expected right away. I log in and change the template, etc. All is good.
Now I'm starting to doubt how I upgraded from 1.1 to 1.3
Here's what I did:
1. Stop web server at DiscountASP.Net and also recycle app pool just in case.
2. Using the latest version of FileZilla I copy all files in the Orchard.Web.1.3.9.zip to the root dir at my web site.
3. Start the web server and try to log into the web site.
4. Boom. no worky.
I guess the other possibility is that FileZilla isn't transferring all the files correctly or they are getting corrupted on the way up but I doubt this. there are some failed transfers but I just re queue them and they eventually go. I can't even recreate
all the issues I've seen today because of the upgraded version of Orchard that is now at DiscountASP.net.
I guess I should be happy that it's all working but this sure makes me uncomfortable thinking about applying a backup or a future upgrade.
