    Hi,

    We're developing our web site locally (local SQL Server & local IIS) which we deployed on a server today, it all worked great, however, I was surprised to see that the home page wasn't set anymore (even though all stored pages were there) and the front-end theme wasn't registered neither?!

    The way we deployed was as follows:
     - backed-up the local databases,
     - published the ASP.NET web sites on the server,
     - restored the local databases on the server,
     - updated connection strings to point to the new databases.

    Any ideas how I could lose those two settings?

    Regards,
    Carl

    Hi Carl,

    This is possible if some of the configuration files are not migrated. For instance the homepage id is set inside ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/PagesConfig.config

    Ok, thanks Ivan, I get it, some .config files weren't included in project, hence not published on the server, it all makes sense.

    Thanks for the quick answer as always,
    Carl

    Hi,

    What about front-end themes ?

    I deployed in the server from my local copying all site files. Front-end site and backend sitefinity are running well but I lost my themes. Somehow, when generating pages, Sitefinity is not putting the right link for the css or is not routing to the correct path.

    Hi,

    It was the same: it's configured in the AppearanceConfig.config which also wasn't included in my project and that wasn't shipped on the production server neither.
