I've upgraded an old site from 220.127.116.11 to 6.2.5, and have found that some content nodes are missing their rich text editors. My first port of call was Document Types, but none of them will open. I suspect that both of these issues have the same base cause.
I get the following when I try to view any document type:
[NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.] umbraco.controls.ContentTypeControlNew.SetupStructurePane() +1073 umbraco.controls.ContentTypeControlNew.OnInit(EventArgs e) +169 System.Web.UI.Control.InitRecursive(Control namingContainer) +185 System.Web.UI.Control.InitRecursive(Control namingContainer) +290 System.Web.UI.Control.InitRecursive(Control namingContainer) +290 System.Web.UI.Control.InitRecursive(Control namingContainer) +290 System.Web.UI.Control.InitRecursive(Control namingContainer) +290 System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) +2097
I've found a couple of other posts about this issue, but haven't found a workable solution. The most relevant seems to be https://our.umbraco.org/forum/getting-started/installing-umbraco/39602-Upgrade-to-602-invalidates-DocumentTypes but it was fixed with an upgrade to 6.0.3 so that doesn't really help when I'm on 6.2.5. https://our.umbraco.org/forum/umbraco-7/using-umbraco-7/59561-Error-when-opening-doc-types-after-upgrade-to-72 also seems to be the same sort of issue, but I've tried removing ExamineIndexes and I don't have "ulconsy" installed.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
I've downloaded the 6.2.5 source, run it in Visual Studio and have pointed it to a copy of the database... and everything works. It therefore seems to show that the database itself doesn't have any issues.
I've reapplied permissions and have compared Web.config with a fresh install (nothing weird in there) but can't think of anything else to try.
Fixed. The Umbraco and Umbraco_Client directories hadn't deployed correctly when the site was upgraded (drag-dropping them in Explorer was silently failing; they simply weren't copying). I redid the copy from a command prompt and everything is working now.
