Upgrading from Community to Standard

  • Upgrading from Community to Standard
  • I'm looking for some instructions on migrating from an older Community version (I believe it is 3.x) to the latest Standard version. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • Hello Matt,

    You can upgrade to 4.2 using our Migration Module ( former migration tool), which is now part of Sitefinity.

    However you need to be running the asp.net 4.0 version of Sitefinity 3.7 SP4 Standard Edition ( Community edition is not supported for migration ) to migrate to 4.2 using the built - in Migration Tool.

    The tool uses web services and it does not operate with the database directly.  Also make sure to backup your files first.

    Also we have this forum section related to the migration procedure.

    Please note that the migration tool migrates only the data, not custom controls and logic, so you may need a developer to migrate your controls and custom modules to SF 4.x

    If you use IIS to setup your project locally and on your production server please visit this article.

    After that you will need to set up you new license according to the version of Sitefinity you will be using.
