    Trouble updating ANCIENT Umbraco install (v3.0.6)

    I have a client looking to update a 10 year old version of Umbraco into the modern age. I found the archive of old releases ( and am working my way through the upgrade path. The move from 3.0.1 to 3.0.6 was easy and uneventful, but the jump to 4.0.1 is causing trouble.

    The biggest problem is that I can no longer log in to umbraco to fix all the OTHER problems. I just keep getting spit back at the login page.

    I know this is a long shot, given how out of date this request is, but can any of the old-timers point me in the right direction?

    Alternatively, is there a way to import content and media from a very old install into a clean install of version 7? I suspect I'd need to update all my templates anyway...

    Thanks in advance!

    This is a long time ago, but could it be that your problem is related to Umbraco encrypting the user passwords?

    Look at the configuration for the UsersMembershipProvider and see if the passwordFormat is set to encrypted.
