I try to migrate my V7.15.7 website to 8.1.x
I followed the guides / documentation / blog posts.
I made sure there are no Obsolete document-types.
Then I installed the Pre-migration health checks and it says it ready for upgrade
Then I installed a fresh new Umbraco 8.5.5 website on my ftp, and after I logged in and made sure it works (the new empty 8.5.5 website) I logged out and changed the connection string in web.config to my old 7.15.7 database.
It started the migration process but after few minutes I got 504.0 GatewayTimeout
Then I tried the process again and after few minutes I got again 504.0 GatewayTimeout
So I tried to increase the Connection Timeout from 3600 to 33600, Connection Timeout=33600
<add name="umbracoDbDSN" connectionString="Server=xxxxxx;Data Source=xxxxx;Initial Catalog=xxxx;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=xxxxxxxxx;MultipleActiveResultSets=False;Encrypt=True;TrustServerCertificate=False;Connection Timeout=33600;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
What else should I do?? It's been almost a week that I my website is unavailable. I try to migrate to 8, but it seems so complicated ...
So annoying ..
What's the reason I'm getting the 504.0 GatewayTimeout ?
I'm using Azure to host my website.
With my other websites that running on wordpress it's so easy ...
Even when I once migrated one website from Drupal to wordpress it was smooth and easy ...
How can I migrate my 7.15.7 to 8 ?????
Thanks for your help .
The easiest way to make an upgrade is to make it on the local machine. I believe there is no reason to upgrade to 8.5.5 is a better way to migrate to higher versions like 8.17 or 8.18
If it is Azure web apps, you can use all DTU on the SQL server, which will break your migration.
How do I make it on the local machine?
I installed a fresh Umbraco 8.5.5 locally (reason I installed 8.5.5 is because "A migration was introduced in v8.6 which can break the migration process")
Then I downloaded my database from Azure as .bacpac file.
Now my question is how do I connect to the local .bacpac database?
Every time when I open the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio it tries to connect to the database on Azure:
Then when I put the password it will connect to the database on Azure:
But, as you suggested, I want to migrate the local .bacpac file - so how do I do it?
How do I connect on the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio to the local .bacpac file ?
How do I connect in the Web.config to the local database ? What should I put in the connectionString?
Thanks! I was finally able to do it and I was able to migrate to 8, then to 9, then to 10, then to 11.1
Thanks a lot for your help.
Just one comment:
3. connect to local SQL server
I had to install a local SQL server, which I found a very good tutorial here:
Create Local SQL Server database

You are welcome, you can skip 9, from 8->10, probably to 11 (not tried yet)
I tried. Didn’t work. Had to do 8-9, 9 - 10, 10 - 11
