Hi, we use Umbraco cloud and I stupidly tried to add the uSync content package and now our site is totally down. Can't even login to the back end.
Does anyone know how to roll it back to before we added this package?
What an unfortunate issue :-/
I'm just wondering if you have tried reaching out to Cloud support and see if they're able to help you out? Maybe they have an option to restore things?
Yes I have but they want me to upgrade to a pro package...
Ah, so you're currently running in trial mode? I don't know how large a site you have been building or whether it's live or not but if it's a live-site I think that the best way to get this issue resolved would be to go for the 25€ option listed here https://umbraco.com/pricing/ ?
If you have been playing around and trying stuff then maybe you can do a new trial? But otherwise paying for the cheapest cloud package might be worth it?
No it's not a trial. We're on the 25 package but they want us to upgrade to pro for support...
Have you tried uninstalling uSync content edition? (Sorry it may seem obvious but I thought best to ask rather than assume)
How did you install the package, was it through the back office or through nuget?
How many environment's do you have? Just the live?
Oh yes, very relevant - I should have asked about this too initially. hi5yr Nik :)
Yes but I am not able to access the backend. Just get error 500 on all pages on the site. Only live environment yes. I installed it via back office
Okay, so first step is to log into the Kudo tools if you can and access the actual log file.
It will be located in the App_Data/log directory for the website but on Cloud it can be a bit tricky to find the current log file.
In there it should, I hope give you more information on the error but if the backoffice is down it means the entire site won't start up so it might be a bit tricky to fix it.
Have you cloned the site down locally so you can work on it in Visual Studio?
Yes I've already cloned locally (before this happened) but in my git client, there are no new commits so nothing to roll back. The whole site is stuck in a restart loop according to support.....
Okay, so.. if you have a local clone that is working... try installing uSync content edition to it in order to get it to the same point.
See if your local then gets the same problem. If you can replicate the issue you can then look at resolving it a bit easier.
But I suspect you'll want to do the following:
1) Remove all uSync related DLL's from the bin directory
2) Remove any references to uSync in web.config
If you do those 2 bits I would like to think the site will then start but, as I say, it's hard to advise fully in this situation.
Support says uSync is not compatible with cloud. Can I use Kudo somwhow to remove it? I've never used that before
you be able to at least edit the web.config and remove the dll's to get the site starting again though kudo.
But, if you can reproduce the behaviour locally, then you can test the process to clean it up and push a clean version up to the git repo. This should, I think, trigger a new deployment updating your site with relevant fixes.
This is very much an I think situation as I've not tried it fully, it could go wrong, so please be cautious.
That's the problem, there's no mention of uSync anywhere that I can see via kudu
I am very sorry to hear that you are having this issue.
The plan that you currently are on is the Starter plan, it costs 25€/month and will obviously not include full support. That's what you will get on the next plan, the Pro plan.
However we will do what we can to guide you through. I can see that my colleague Eric is doing his best to guide you through on how to solve the issue.
It can be a bit tricky depending on the experience you have. So hang in there, and I am sure Eric will help you find the right solution :)
I highly recommend that you will attend one of the free Cloud webinars. It is a super great way to achieve knowledge and best-practice on how to work with Umbraco Cloud :)
Next webinar is already on Oct. 22 and you can sign up for free right here: https://umbraco.com/products/free-umbraco-webinars/
Thanks for the help and suggestions guys. I'be fixed it. I just needed to delete the dlls from the bin folder via kudu.
Wonderful Ben! #H5YR
Have a fantastic weekend.
Sorry about this uSync shouldn't actually run on cloud, it has a check in there to see if its on cloud and not startup if thats true.
obviously Thats not working anymore - the indicator for running on cloud might have changed - so i will reach out to the core team and see if we can get that fixed.
is working on a reply...
