We have successfully upgraded our local development enviroment to v7.5 from 7.1, and now want to upgrade the staging/production environment.
In the best of worlds I would like to only upgrade the stage database by running upgrade scripts, followed by the VPP migration tool.
I have found some interesting SQL scripts in Upgrade\Database\sql, however I do not know the right order to execute the scripts or which ones to use.
Has anyone had any experience doing this? I know I could point the dev site to stage database and upgrade that way, but it would be a lot easier with an "Upgrade Database" option in Deployment Center. (Oh and I do not have RDP to stage webserver).
Upgrading only the database will not work - you need to upgrade VPPs as well (EPiServer source files has moved from program files to Modules folder). It's tricky to upgrade an environment other than dev, this because there are a lot of code changes involved when moving from 7.1 to 7.5.
I have upgraded one test environment, here is what I did:
Thanks Mari for your reply!
The problem is that I do not have RDP to staging so I cannot use Deployment Center. I had to resort to the solution I mentioned last in my post:
