(The loneliness of an Umbraco upgrader)
Upgrade an existing site (v4) onto
the latest version of Umbraco (v7)
The HQ team (and others within the community)
have been implementing and making lots of stuff.
The tech world can change quite a lot in
a relatively short space of time.
Oh, and it's also likely to take some effort
and require a bit of money in terms of resources.
For the most part a simple Nuget install
is all that is required. ;)
Note: your site / umbraco may still not work.
But what if that didn't work?! Here's just
a few things that might not work out.
Hate to break it to you, but some of that
old stuff just won't work anymore.
Not everything is stored the same way and
some data types won't be compatible
Note: Be careful when doing this and remove version history
The rebuild might take a while, so you'll need to
upgrade again with the new code
An up to date and solid foundation to build
upon, ensuring the website lasts another few years.
Embrace the change and enjoy the new world
of Umbraco that you find yourself in.
