    Not sure if upgrade worked

    I followed the instructions with the upgrade but i'm not sure it worked. Now it looks like two packages are installed. V2.5.7 and V2.9.1 (upgrade version). How can i check if the right version is properly installed?

    Hi, Johan,

    Depending on the version of Umbraco you might see multiple installations of ImageGen in the 'Installed Packages' section. That's normal so you can see the history. Though the latest versions will change that so you only see the latest installed version.

    You can verify which version of ImageGen is running by visiting your website and using the /imagegen.ashx?version url. It should say v2.9.1, indicating the upgrade was successful.

    Shout with any questions or problems.

    cheers,
    doug.

    Thanks Doug! I'm running 4.11.10 and get ImageGen Basic version 2.9.1.36630 so everything seems to be in order on that front.

    The reason for the upgrade is that my host is telling me that my site is slow due to Image Gen. The images that are loading takes incrementally longer and longer to load for every image loaded.

    This sounds weird because Image Gen caches the images and my local dev environment don't have these problems.

    I have updated everything and deleted the cached folders but it still having problems :S. You have any idea why this could be?

    The upgrade will help as performance is one of the improvements. Hopefully that'll resolve the issue you're seeing.

    If not, maximum website visitor performance (and minimum server load) is achieved with ImageGen Professional and using client-side caching in addition to the server-side caching built into the free Basic version.

    But try the free upgrade and see how you get on.

    cheers,

    Well, the upgrade didn't solve it. But i think there is something weird going on on the server and not the fault of ImageGen. It works fine in my dev-environment so i kludged it by putting the images on a CDN :P

    Glad you've got it resolved. But do be aware that if you're using remote images you'll need ImageGen Professional and will definitely want to use client-side caching.
