  • Hi,
    I have an existing Sitefinity 3.7 sp2 live website built on standard edition. Now I am planning to Upgrade it to 4 version. and I would like to do the upgrade on my local machine and copy over to live.

    Can anyone please suggest me from where I can download the sitefinity 4 standard edition installation package for this?
  • Hi Hydo L,

    You can use the migration tool http://sitefinitymigration.codeplex.com/  to migrate the data from 3.x to 4.0. The tool uses web services and it does not operate with the database directly. You need to patch your project to Sitefinity 3.7 Sp3+ / or 3.7 Sp4 /. Also make sure to backup your files first. Here are the official upgrade instructions

    http://www.sitefinity.com/support/upgrade-instructions.aspx

    It migrates only the data, not custom controls and logic, so I would say that there should be a developer at your end to migrate the project.

  • Thanks Victor.

    Can you also answer me for that second Question "Can anyone please suggest me from where I can download the sitefinity 4 standard edition installation package for this? "
  • Hi Hydo L,

    I can see you have expired trial license for Sitefinity 4. You can contact our sales team to have it extended or purchase a valid license for Sitefinity 4 Standard Edition. Then you will have all your purchased products available for download here.

    All the best,

  • My company already have License for Sitefinity 3.7. So do we need to purchase it again? Is there no way to upgrade our product to 4 without buying 4.0?
  • Hi Hydo,

    Thank you for getting back to us!
    Actually all clients who have purchased Sitefinity 3.7 and had a valid subscription on the 14.01.2011 automatically received an upgrade for Sitefinity 4.0 for free. The ones who still have active subscriptions have received all upgrades until now (service packs and the upcoming Q1 release if they have active subscription).

    Please feel free to contact our sales team directly with specific question regarding your license and options, we will be happy to assist you further on! You can reach us at sales@sitefinity.com or on +1.888.365.2779

    All the best,

  • Hello Majd,

    Thank you for your interest in Sitefinity!
    You can download a trial of Sitefinity here.
    The current version of Sitefinity is 5.4, so you can log into your Sitefinity.com account and choose to activate the Standard Edition trial -

  • Hello Pat,

    Thank you for the answer

    But I could not find the page that you mentioned in that image.

    www.sitefinity.com/try-now is going to a common download page. I can't select standard or professional.  Please help me out
