Missing Admin, Edit folders in migrated website


Hi, I'm trying to migrate our website from 4.62 to Version 5.0. I used the migration tool, and followed the instructions as mentioned in the article. The migration got completed, but i dont have the admin,edit folders in the new website. I couldn't create,edit or administer the website. Am i missing something.

I went ahead and migrated the code, fixed all the compilation errors and copied Admin,Edit folders from old 4.62 errors. The site loads fine, i could browse the pages.

 However, i get errors when i visit admin page.

Have i done anything wrong, or am i missing some steps here. Kindly help.

In CMS 5 and higher the edit and admin folders don't reside inside the webroot. Instead, they are mapped into the site structure using the Virtual Path Provider. In the CMS 5 installation process you got to choose the path of the UI components. If you don't remember what you chose, check your configs for a siteSettings element with a uiUrl attribute. Say uiUrl is "~/secure/UI/" then you should be able to reach edit mode on yourhost/secure/UI/edit.
