@Naeem Is anything special with your page? I tested with the Alloy template with EPiServer.CMS.Core 11.13.2, the modified date is updated

Hi Naeem, Is it happening for all page types or only for specific page type?

Hi Sanjay,

This is happening for all page types. EPi website is upgraded from 10 to EPi 11 and it has this issue after upgrade.

Hi Naeem,

Please check the updated database date format for the UTC with the following steps.

1. Check the UTC time format:

DECLARE @result int
EXEC @result =sp_GEtdatetimekind
select @result

2. If @result does not return 2 ( o/p. 2 for UTC) then Go to package manager console area and run following command and then try.


If @result returns 2 then we need to more investigate.

Hi Sanjay,
