  • In the process of upgrading from 6.2 to 8.2.  Test environment is already running 8.2, but I I would like to  grab a fresh copy of the live db and restore it to test db.  Is there a way to  trigger the db upgrade process again?  Thanks for you help!
  • Hello Carlos,

    It is not supported to connect Sitefinity project files to a database which has different schema version. In order to upgrade the Sitefinity project, please strictly follow the upgrade instructions as described in our documentation article:

  • Hi Sabrie,

    I followed the instructions when upgrading my test environment and everything is running great in 8.2 there, but I need to refresh the test database with a current copy of production (which is still in 6.2).   I know that I can upgrade the production database once I deploy, but I am not at that point yet.

    I figured that if I overwrote the database in test and restated the site it would trigger the upgrade process again.... would that not work?


    Thanks for your help!!
