    Upgrade from v7 to v8 - Migrating obsolete datatypes


    I try to upgrade my website from V7 to V8 (then hopefully V9, V10, etc.)

    As a first step before I even begin with the actual upgrade process, I try to migrate the obsolete datatypes.

    I was reading few articles / answers here and in other places and I try to figure out how to do it.

    I understand that I can't only change in the back office but also in the database. I was reading some people created scripts but I'm little hesitant to run others scripts on my database, so I was thinking to do it manually .

    My question - where in the database I need to make the changes after I change in the Backoffice and what do I need to change?


    Umbraco.MultipleMediaPicker -> new editor: Umbraco.MediaPicker2 Umbraco.MediaPicker -> new editor: Umbraco.MediaPicker2 Umbraco.ContentPickerAlias -> new editor: Umbraco.ContentPicker2 etc. ?

    Like, to find in the DB for example Umbraco.MultipleMediaPicker and rename to Umbraco.MediaPicker2 ?

    Please advise.


    Bellow a screenshot of my db:

    Hi Dennis, Yes. I was reading your post when I was looking for solutions, very good and useful post.

    Anyway, I decided just to do it manually, and this is how I'm doing it:
