    Copying a site to a fresh umbraco install

    I have completed a site for a client(4.7), and a new client would like something similar, is their an easy way to copy what I've done into a new fresh installation of umbraco (4.7.1) and just edit the templates?

    Cheers,

    S

    Hi Stephen

    If it's a simple site you have made you could just create a package from within the developer section where you choose the templates, document types and possible datatypes that you will need in your new site.

    Files like CSS and JavaScript I would just copy from the disk.

    You could also script the database from your current site and import it into a clean db and then copy all the files from the disk.

    In the future I think you could benefit from making your own Umbraco base where you setup the basic document types, attach some templates to them create a content structure etc. and then simply have this site as a starting point for every project so you avoid doing stuff all over again each time you start a new project :)

    Hope these pointers help a bit.

    /Jan

    Hey Jan,  thanks for the feedback, sorry it took so long to thank you for your detailed reply.  Never created a package so going to give that a try tonight.

    Cheers,

    Continually getting this error when i try to install my newly created package....

    Could not find datatype with id 5e9b75ae-face-41c8-b47e-5f4b0fd82f83

     

    Is there a way to find out what that Datatype is?

    Cheers,

    Hi Stephen,

    If you open up your database, open up a new query window, and use the following query to list all datatypes and guids:

     

    SELECT TOP 1000 [pk], [nodeId], [controlId], [dbType], [text]
    FROM cmsDataType
    inner join umbracoNode ON cmsDataType.nodeId = umbracoNode.id
    order by text

    To find your missing control, add a where clause to filter on the "controlId" column. Hope that helps!

    :)
