Page Files after upgrade from EPi 4


After EPiServer is upgraded from a "standard" version 4 to 5, the Page File folders is visible as numreric folders under Upload folder, since these are not longer configured as Page Files.

Does anyone have a solution for moving them out from Upload folder and into the Page Files folder after the migration is done? (And get them to work as Page Files, with preserved links)

Something like this perhaps? 

        <add showInFileManager="false" virtualName="pages" virtualPath="~/PageFiles/" bypassAccessCheck="false" indexingServiceCatalog="Web" physicalPath="C:\VPP_path" name="SitePageFiles" type="EPiServer.Web.Hosting.VirtualPathVersioningProvider,EPiServer" />


 <add toPath="~/pages/" fromPath="~/upload/" name="Mapping0" type="EPiServer.Web.Hosting.VirtualPathPageMappingProvider,EPiServer.Legacy4" />

Can't get that to work, when we run the Migration Tool against a site with this configuration it will fail with message:

[2008-11-03 11:34:54][Warning] Failed to convert filesystem ~/pagefiles/, reason:
[2008-11-03 11:34:54][Warning] System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (503) Server Unavailable.
