Changing the Database

  • Changing the Database
  • Hello,

    I am about to start creating a web site for my company. I have been using the "community" edition to test out Sitefinity and Im going ot start on the licensed version and I was wondering if I could somehow use the templates I created in the community version in the new project. Also, I am going to be using the developer's databasen in my local box, but once I deploy the site to production, I will need to change to a database in production in another server. Is it possible to change the database that you set at the beggining of the project??

    Thanks,
    John
  • Hi John,

    There should not be a problem to use the templates that you have already created. For the database, please restore a backup on your production server and change the connection string in App_data/Sitefinity/Configuration/dataConfig.config file.

    Best wishes,
