If you have previously upgraded a test server to Version 13.0, and now need to refresh the new server with changes from your 12.5 production server before going live, here are the instructions. These instructions only apply to migrating data from 12.5.16 or later to 13.0.4 or later. Your source 12.5 installation must be on the latest patch, and you must be using the latest 13.0 upgrade installer.
STOP: If you have not ran the 13.0 Upgrade installer previously, please follow the steps outlined on the 13.0 Upgrade article linked here instead.
Updating V13.0 Test Server with more Recent 12.5 Data
Please DO NOT UNINSTALL Railo or ElasticSearch. After copying the updated data, we will re-run the upgrade installer and repair the installation. All instructions below are performed on the 13.0 server (not the 12.5 server).
- Uninstall the Intranet Connections program from the Add/Remove programs screen.
- Restore and overwrite the 13.0 database with the 12.5 database.
When restoring, under options, ensure Overwrite the existing database is selected.
- Run the following SQL against the restored database, to ensure database login is connected to server login:
exec sp_change_users_login 'auto_fix','intranetconnections';
- In the wwwroot and Intranet folder (typically C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Intranet) backup the following files and folders to the desktop if they exist:
- _CleanFiles folder
- WEB-INF folder
- web.config file
If done correctly, there should be only Intranet folder:
e.g. C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Intranet<files and folders> NOT C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Intranet\Intranet\<files and folders>
Expand your sites list > highlight your website > click 'Basic Settings from the right navigation to locate the path.
If your path in Step 10 included /intranet in the path, copy the WEB-INF folder into the Intranet folder, otherwise, copy it into the wwwroot folder.
