Earlier when I have try to upgrade directly from 7.3.1 to 7.9.x, it fails.
Would it be better to upgrade in several steps, for example to 7.3.6, then to 7.4.3, then to 7.5.14, 7.6.13, 7.7.13, 7.8.1 and then 7.9.2?
Yes, it's better to upgrade in several steps, we had similar problems with Upgrading Umbraco 6 to 7.9.2
7.5.14 and further
Then I'll test out step by step upgrade when it becomes relevant, depending on which packages needed for new webservice.
I tested this with a local copy and it went well. There was something I had to change / set up to get these upgradings to work from 7.4.x to 7.5.x, and from 7.5.x to 7.6.x, but after that it was straight ahead from 7.7.x, 7.8.x and 7.9.x.
Thank you very much for sharing with community your observations, have a great day!
I just upgraded from 7.2 to 7.9.2 using NuGet and I wanted to share a discovery I made.
Problem: Install screen routes you to a login page, and logins don't work anymore because new Umbraco expects a new userLogin table to exist.
Solution: Clear the connection string and provider for the umbracoDbDSN connection string in Web.config. Umbraco sees the connectionstring and thinks it's already installed. Additionally, clear the value field for app setting umbracoConfigurationStatus. E.g. <add key="umbracoConfigurationStatus" value="" />. This had been set to 7.9.2 when I upgraded and when I cleared it, I was finally able to reach the install page.
<add key="umbracoConfigurationStatus" value="" />
Problem: Upgrade fails halfway through (check Network Tools XHRs for PostPerformInstall) with a message saying you're not authorized
Solution: Make sure you're in a private/incognito browsing mode or clear your cache. Also make sure you're not already logged into the server with the credentials. Kill existing connections to the database
I hope this helps someone out there one day.
