    Upgrade Stuck at Step 1


    We are upgrading one of our Umbraco installations from 4.7.0 to 4.7.2, this particular installation presents us with the Upgrading Umbraco screen but clicking the Let's get started button just sends us back to that same page.

    Other upgrades have been done without any problem and this particular install does not have anything special or different in relation to the other ones.  Our installed plugins are uControls, Refactored Views Count and Standard Values.

    The log table registers this:  CurrentVersion different from configStatus: '4.7.2','4.7.0'

    Any suggestion is welcome.

    Hi Joe666, welcome to the community :)

    What steps did you take in order to upgrade?

    Perhaps something went wrong with updating the web.config to hold the correct version number in <add key="umbracoConfigurationStatus" value="4.7.2" />?

    Hi Jan, thanks for taking the time to reply, steps were:

    1. Backup Everything
    2. Replace files in umbraco installation with the ones from download
    3. Apply custom changes to files  in web.config and in files under the \config directory
    4. Visit homepage in browser

    The value in web.config for the umbracoConfigurationStatus is: 4.7.0

    <add key="umbracoConfigurationStatus" value="4.7.0" />

    If I change that value to 4.7.2 then I get a 404 not found when the system tries to enter the /install/ directory.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Hi Joe

    Ok, with this particular version it's only neccesary to overwrite /bin,/umbraco and /umbraco_client folders and do a winmerge on the config files.

    I think you should try doing this

    1: Edit the web.config and change the version back to 4.7.0
    2: Place the Install directory in the root folder at the same level as /bin, /umbraco etc.

    Try accesing the site in the browser again - I believe this should end the redirecting to the start-page issue and help you complete the upgrade.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Hi all

    I have the same problem upgrading from 4.7.0 to 4.7.2.

    When I log into the website I am met with the Upgrader/Installer and stepping thru the process seems to complete, but when I try to open the site afterwards I am again met with the Installer-screen. (actually the installer jumps directly from Accepting the License to "You're done")

    I tried to follow Jan Skovgaards advice but that did not help.

    My log also reads

    " CurrentVersion different from configStatus: '4.7.2','4.7.0' "

    What to do???


    @Joe: did you get it to work?
