    Hi,

    I have heard that you don't need to use the Project Manager to upgrade a project. If the code base is upgraded, then the code will see that the signature of the database is older and automatically upgrade it. That sounds cool.

    What I want to know is, how do I know that the database has been successfully upgraded? Where do I look to check that the database ignature is the same? Also, if there were any errors during the upgrade, where would they be logged?

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hello Andrei,

    When you supply the project with the new dlls and replace them, they automatically upgrade your configs and your database. If you wonder if your database has been successfully upgraded, you can find the version of the database in the table [sf_schema_vrsns] where there is a column [version_number] which holds the actual project version.

    Also the upgrade logs can be found in the same folder as the original error logs - yourproject/App_Data\Sitefinity/Logs but their name starts with UpgradeTrace.

    Kind regards,

    Victor,

    Many thanks. I have had a look at my current status of that table and it looks as attached.
    I was expecting only a couple of records, but there seems to be quite a few once in there
    with zeros and all. I guess it is fine.

    Thanks again,
    Andrei

    Hi Andrei,

    As you can see from the columns, the database keep records of your previous version of Sitefinity and your current one and also lets you know which version are your assemblies.

    All the best,
