    Transferring files from local machine onto web server HELP!

    Hello my fellow umbraco users,

    I have a website that I directly installed umbraco on, got it working perfectly and all I had on the site was a trailer of things to come, nothing else.

    I have developed the site locally on my laptop, to transfer it to my live site I removed all the files on my server and copied over the files from my dev site. The homepage is visible fine but it is missing my macros and other content. When I log in to umbraco on my live site, all the nodes and templates/document types etc are the same as the previous site I had before I copied over the dev files. 

    Does anyone know what I've done wrong or how to fix this?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Jedd,

    I think that you could try some different things here. The first thing I would try to do was to make an IIS reset on the server and see if it updates the backoffice of Umbraco. If it has no effect will my next step would be to try reloading the notes in the content tree and the different sections in Umbraco.
    If it´s still does not work, then I wIll try delete my browser cache, and see if this was the issue.

    No one says you have to try these in that order.

    That is just my thoughts of what you could try. I hope my thoughts can help you solve your issue.

    Another possibility is file permissions.   Are you able to view, edit and save a change to a macro from the Umbraco UI?  

    If not, then file permissions might need to be reset on your live server after you upload files.  Normally these are inherited, but it's possible the hosting folder was set not to inherit permissions.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks a lot for your help guys, really appreciate it.


    Managed to fix it - I had to backup the database I was using for my dev site and restore the live site database using the .bak file from it.


    Thanks again!
