Upgrading DNN 5.0.2 to DNN 5.2.3

  • PLEASE DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP Backup your files/database before upgrading to a new version
  • Download the Upgrade package from DNN website
  • Unzip and copy the contents (Folders and Files) to override your existing DNN application
  • Rename your old “web.config” file to something like “web.config.backup
  • Rename the “release.config” file to “web.config” file
  • With both files open “web.config” and “web.config.backup” copy from “web.config.backup” the following sections
    • <connectionStrings> bla bla bla bla bla </connectionStrings>
    • <add key=”SiteSqlServer” value=”Data Source=SERVERIP;Initial Catalog=DBNAME;User ID=USERID;Password=PASSWORD” />
  • Note: I left this setting <add key=”AutoUpgrade” value=”true” /> unchanged. So my login information for Admin and Host was not working until I copied this settings from the “web.config.backup<machineKey validationKey=”bla bla bla bla bla” decryptionKey=”bla bla bla bla bla” decryption=”bla bla bla bla bla” validation=”bla bla bla bla bla” />
  • Finally, simply browse to localhost/DotNetNuke_Community (or whatever you have used for your url) in your web browser. The application will automatically execute the necessary database scripts and provide feedback in the browser
  • This work fine with me. My skin, content and data remained unchanged. But most importantly…it fixed the “?” issue. I hope it helps someone else out there.]]>
