Upgrading to EPiServer 7 Connect for SharePoint

EPiServer 7 Connect for SharePoint contains new features and bug fixes. An existing EPiServer CMS 6 R2 site with the previous module version should first be upgraded to EPiServer 7 CMS

Upgrading the EPiServer CMS side:

  1. Open EPiServer Deployment Center.
  2. Run: Upgrade to EPiServer 7 Connect for SharePoint 
  3. Follow the installer instructions.

Upgrading the Microsoft SharePoint solution:

  1. Uninstall the previous solution version as described in Installation instructions under Uninstalling the SharePoint Solution
  2. Install the new solution by following the steps described in the Installation instructions under Deploying the SharePoint Solution.

Note:  Channels configuration in the new version of SharePoint solution is stored in database instead of XML file, so it needs to be reconfigured after upgrade. The old channels configuration file: EPiServerSharePointConnector.config can be removed. You can find it at <drive>\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\<port> (<drive> is the drive where IIS is installed and <port> is the port number for the web application, for example: 80). You can also remove a reference to the configuration file from the web.config located in the same folder. The reference you can find in configuration/appSettings with key EPiServerConnectorConfigRelativePath.
