Upgrading

Feb 5, 2016 at 4:01 PM
DNN: 7.3.4
2SXC: 6.6.0

I am contemplating updating the site to 2SXC 8.1.2 and to DNN 7.4.2.

Before I do that, though, what warnings or advice do you have for me. It's important that my data not disappear. All of the 2SXC content on the site is in Content modules, and not apps.

How should I approach this?

mm 6.6 I don't think you can do a portal copy with all content yet inthat version

Just export all your content using the 2sxc export feature that way you at least have all your data should something go wrong and backup your dnn ofcourse

never tried that upgrade, maybe better idea to first upgrade to the latest 7.x version and then go for the latest 8 ?

Everything should work, just make a DB backup first.

Please also note that Content and Apps are both 1st class citizens - both are important and neither can replace the other. So do NOT assume that Apps replace content, they are meant for more complex scenarios and never as a content-replacement.
