    When I was upgrading from 6.0 to 6.1.43 the site crashed as well. The support sent a bunch of dlls - to substitute the existing ones. Then they said it has been fixed. What is wrong this time???

    Hello Inna,

    This issue is caused by a custom control or other file that was built against the 6.1 version of the Telerik.Sitefinity assembly and as a result is still looking for that version. The issue can be resolved with a simply binding redirect pointing that version to the actual current version of the assembly. You can resolve this by placing the following binding redirect in your web.config:


    <runtime>

            
    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
     
                <dependentAssembly>
     
                    <assemblyIdentity name="Telerik.Sitefinity" publicKeyToken="b28c218413bdf563" culture="neutral"/>
     
                    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="0.0.0.0-65535.65535.65535.65535" newVersion="6.1.4600.0"/>
     
                </dependentAssembly>                    
     
            </assemblyBinding>  
     
        </runtime>

    I would like to recommend watching the upgrade webinar before upgrading as it details how to resolve such issues during the upgrade process:Common Issues with Sitefinity Upgrades.

    After this, when you upgrade, you just need to update the newVersion value to the version you are upgrading. More on this method you can find here:Avoid Version errors with Assembly Binding.
