    Moving website causes AuthorizeUpgrade loop

    I recently upgrade from 7.2.8 to the latest 7.4.1. Everything went smoothly besides a couple of queries I had to run.

    If I try to move the database and files to my localhost (or vice versa to another host) then I'm constantly asked to AuthoriseUpgrade.

    I have cleared the cache, modified the ClientDependancy config and also made sure the bin files are all fresh (for testing sake). The version in the web.config is as it should be (7.4.1).

    Anyone know a way around this please as it's extremely frustrating.

    If I do actually run the installer, I get this message:

    The database failed to upgrade. ERROR: The database configuration failed with the following message: Invalid object name 'umbracoMigration'. Please check log file for additional information (can be found in '/App_Data/Logs/UmbracoTraceLog.txt')
    

    Looking in the database, I see the following, this looks strange right? I think that this is a DB issue?

    Is your connectionstring pointing to the correct database ?

    Hi Dave,

    100% certain it is.

    Can you check if the table umbracoMigration is in the database ? This should been added as part of the upgrade.

    Hi Devin,

    Missed the screenshot in the original post. It seems you ran the upgrade using a different user/schema on the sql server. The tables should be prefixed with dbo.

    So it is a SQL server issue.

    Makes sense Dave - Thanks for the clarification. I did think the prefix looked strange.

    Is there any way to resolve this without having to go back and re-upgrade the older version? We have already made content updates to this instance of the website.

    Not even sure how I would've caused this to be honest.

    Managed to resolve this myself using the following script:

    declare @sql varchar(8000), @table varchar(1000), @oldschema varchar(1000), @newschema   varchar(1000)
    
      set @oldschema = 'resuser'
      set @newschema = 'dbo'
    
     while exists(select * from sys.tables where schema_name(schema_id) = @oldschema)
    
      begin
          select @table = name from sys.tables 
          where object_id in(select min(object_id) from sys.tables where  schema_name(schema_id)  = @oldschema)
    
        set @sql = 'alter schema ' + @newschema + ' transfer ' + @oldschema + '.' + @table
    
       exec(@sql)
     end
    

    Thanks for your help Dave.

    Devin - mate, you rock, I was at the "have another whiskey" stage on my new laptop and my websites not working.

    Thank you so much for sharing...
