    I am migrating our website from an old sitefinity 4.1 install to a new 5.1 install.

    Is there a way to export pages and content into the new site/db?

    Doing an upgrade on the site breaks it.

    Dear James

    Please excuse if this question is a dumb one. You are aware that you cannot take 4.1 streight to 5.1, right?

    You have to upgrade with releases in between. I guess the way would be:

     4.1 -> 4.2 -> 4.4 -> 5.0 -> 5.1  So actually you would have to rund 4 upgrades. Testing after each upgrade would show you were something might break.

    Thanks Markus. I have done this a couple of times, but each time the newly upgraded 5.1 install shows an empty login page and no pages on the site.

    As a last resort I have created a new installation of 5.1 on a new server, and would like to 'start afresh' but keep the content.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Dear James

    When you start from 4.1 upgrading, which is the last version when testing that the site has content?
