    Upgrade from 4.0.2.1 -> upgrade path and potential issues

    I inherited a site. Yeah, its made with Umbraco and even worse with ASP... never used ASP. Ah well, its code and database, I'll figure it out. ;)

    I will need to get back on this, but my intention is to get the site up to date and during the upgrade process I may stumble over a number of problems, but the main concern is basic static page content, nothing fancy, just text and images. Starting off following this path unless I see any issues related to the versions: https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/Getting-Started/Setup/Upgrading/version-specific

    I will of course find out more details about the site, I know you will ask, but rest assured I have done these things before and I am not overly worried since Umbraco is alive and well, with continued development and what seems like a great community support.

    The most relevant question right now is do I risk having to redo the site during upgrade or will the pages content remain in place? The layout is rather simple, but I need to get a grip of it of course. Styles/Themes may have been abandoned over time.

    Anyone of you familiar with this task?

    May the force be with you. Now to find out how I set up an ASP testing environment, tips? I am used to www.apachefriends.org/index.html but don't have much experience with IIS...

    As for now I am prepping a test environment on a Srv12R2 machine using IIS8 and MS WebMatrix 3 (updated versions from what is described here: https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/Getting-Started/Setup/Install/install-umbraco-manually ).

    So will I run in to snags when I move in an Umbraco 4 site?

    Ok, finally got in to the site, the owners had little clue about these things, which is understandable.

    The site is: umbraco v 4.0.2.1 (Assembly version: 1.0.3441.17657)

    How do I know if it is Vanilla or there are any custom plugins or addons added to it.

    And how do I make sure the backup is correct?

    Download that same version of Umbraco. Unzip it to a different folder. Use a tool like WinMerge to see what's different. Some folders can largely be ignored (e.g., App_Data/TEMP and media).

    Packages can be installed via the back office, in which case there will be an XML file somewhere in App_Data that lists out the packages that were installed. Packages can also be installed via NuGet, in which case you can see what's in the NuGet XML file (packages.config IIRC). Some can be installed manually, so best to rely on the WinMerge diff for those.

    I could use an answer to a few more of above questions, if it aint to much to ask for.

    @Nicholas Westby I can only find up to 4.5.2 on Github: https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/releases/tag/Release-4.5.2

    Wait, found https://our.umbraco.com/download/releases//4118 but still not as early as the one I would need to check the files for changes.

    Thanks. Looking for a time slot to deal with it.
