You can upgrade to 4.1 using our Migration Module ( former migration tool), which is now
part of Sitefinity. I would advise you to use it this way as it is the latest version of the migration tool. This is how you can do that:
You can download the migration module from your account ( check screenshot ) , install the release and follow the instructions.
Also we have this forum section
related to the migration procedure.
You can also migrate your site the old way by downloading the migration tool itself ( the latest changeset ) and followinging the instructions on http://sitefinitymigration.codeplex.com/documentation
to migrate the data from 3.x to 4.0.
The tool uses web services and it does not operate with the database directly. Also make sure to backup your files first.
Please note that the migration tool migrates only the data, not custom controls and logic, so you may need a developer to migrate your controls to SF 4.x
If we assume that your project has passed the steps from 3.7 - 4.0 and it is 4.0 now
, follow these steps to move to 4.1:
- create a blank project using the ProjectManager ( version 4.1 ).
- copy the entry in Project.XML that has been created ( the file can be found in the same folder which also contains ProjectManager.exe ) to the Project.XML of the newer version.
- hit the upgrade button of the ProjectManager.
If you use IIS to setup your project locally and on your production server please visit this article.
After that you will need to set up you new license according to the version of Sitefinity you will be using.
All the best,
the Telerik team
