    I had a web portal developed by a third party.  They used a trial version of sitefinity. When I tried to open it today I got an error page saying the trial period had expired.  I activated the site using my license file.  It then displayed a page saying that I needed to log in and create my first page.  How do I get the pages back?

    Do you have access to the SQL database. I so confirm that there are pages in the sfPages table.

    Dear SteveH

    a) sure you are connecting to the right database App_Data/Sitefintiy/Configuration/DataConfig.config
    b) if yes sure the 3rd party moved stuff from development to production

    Hello Steve,

    Your pages are not deleted after the expiration of your trial period. As mentioned, can you check the database connection and look in Management Studio under sf_page_node table for your page (screenshot).

    If you keep having troubles finding your pages, can you open a support ticket to further investigate the problem?
