Finally, we launchet one of the biggest upgrade of Umbraco / uCommerce / Windows servers I have ever been involved in.From Umbraco 4.7.0 to the latest 6.1.5 .From uCommerce 2.0.5 to the latest 4.1.4 .Refactorering solution to fewer projects.From Win7 , IIS7 , MSSQL2008 to latest WinServer 2012 IIS8 , MSSQL 2012.As previously with TeamCity , Subversion and a pipeline of 4 servers (local and demo delveloper , stage , live ) .http://mit.jp.dk.">Where: Jyllands- Posten commercial team on http://mit.jp.dk . One
of Denmark's largest newspapers , Jyllands- Posten - have here a store
that sells subscriptions and special offers for subscribers.A team of 5 men worked over a month to get all updates implemented. A large part of the code that uses uCommerce 's API has been rewritten . The
biggest challenges has been setup : config -files and assemblies ,
weird hacks and undocumented new guidelines - especially uCommerce has
been a challenge . Another major challenge has been automated tests that run in a separate project - which also needed updating.Such large changes have not been able to be part of a normal deployment . We
have set up a parallel line with the upgrade project and continuously
synchronized with normal project which regularly had small updates .A
parallel line of course, provides world of challenges in relation to eg
dns , permits inside and outside gmz since we use a range of services
from third parties.So - here's how we did it :A : Upgrade uCommerce and solution files- Install uCommerce packets from Umbraco backend. Stepwise. We found this model works: 2.0.5 - > 2.6 -> 2.6.1 -> 3 - > 4- During the upgrade: the code and settings using uCommerce must also be upgraded.B : Upgrade Umbraco- From an empty folder only with Umbraco 6 : Specify the database and run the installer- Merge Umbraco 's web.config with your own . Do the same for other config filesC : Use the upgraded database just replace the files with the updated files ( from A except for the new merged config files)Oh - by the way :Lots of things can go wrong in such a big upgrade. I will post some more details on our.umbraco.org in the coming days.
