Migrating Multiple Sites Same Database

  • Migrating Multiple Sites Same Database
  • I have several different sites that use the same Sitefinity database.  What is the process for migrating the sites in this situation?  Do we need to do anything different based on multiple sites on the same database?
  • I received a reply from Telerik support.  Below is the response...

    Hello Aaron,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    Such scenario is not currently supported by Sitefinity 4.3. What I can suggest is to migrate each site ( as they share one database ) separately. You can follow our migration guide:


    Basically you can use the Project Manager to install the Migration service, then you can start the new 4.3 project and follow the on-screen instructions.

    What I am not clear on is the direct question on whether running multiple sites from the same sitefinity databse is possible with 4.3.  If it is not yet supported, what is the timeline on supporting this?  The cost implications of having all of the sites have their own database on Azure is huge.
  • Hi Aaron,

    Unfortunately such scenario is not supported at the moment and such feature is not planned in near future. I will forward the request to the dev teams who can discuss the implementation of such feature.

    Kind regards,
