    Hi guys hopefully an easy question but I have a website currently running Umbraco v7.5.8 and SQL Server 2012. My hosting company has advised I need to migrate from SQL Server 2012 to 2017 will this cause any issues with CMS or are there any pitfalls please?

    Shouldn't be any compability problems, just make sure there are no updates to the DB between the backup is taken and the connection string is updated to the new sql server (or however they do the migration).

    Regards, Magnus

    Heya Andrew,

    You really shouldn't have any problems with simply migrating the DB from MSSQL 2012 => 2017. I've done this several times in the past.

    So I managed to create an MSSQL 2017 and restore from 2012 however when updating the connection string in the web.config umbraco loads the site and prompts me to login to authorize an upgrade?? however, my login details dont work..
