The IDS Logic Sitefinity upgrade and migration process:
To help maintain your Sitefinity CMS sites features and health it is essential that you keep your software up to date. Similarly, in order to take full advantage of the new features and productivity these updates bring, it is recommended that you stay on top of the latest upgrades for Sitefinity. Ensuring those updates are carried out in line with Sitefinity’s requirements is a skilled task and can have implications for your site and service if enacted poorly or without regard for each primary step and configuration.
Our team is highly experienced in managing these upgrades in a methodical and efficient manner ensuring a trouble free process. These steps include:
Step 1: Application Backup:
Before we start the migration or update process, we make sure that we have taken and tested a full (off site) backup of your database and application code.
Step 2: “Employ” Project Manager to Initiate the Process
In case your Sitefinity website is not using the NuGet packages, then we use the Sitefinity “Project Manager” Tool to upgrade the site. This helps ensure that we update any web references, update configs and obtain new DLLs.
Step 3: Migration Module:
For sites that use Sitefinity version 3.7 version or older, we initiate the process using Sitefinity’s “Migration Module” in order to import the site’s content whilst upgrading to the next version.
Step 4: Carry out thorough post upgrade test:
Before we make the site live, we carry out a thorough test of your upgraded site against our exhaustive checklist to confirm all your widgets, modules, customer code etc. are all working and performing as required.
Step 5: Push Upgrade to Live:
To reduce your site’s downtime, we carry out the upgrade using a backup of your site and once it is upgraded and tested, the domain is then switched back to the live site. There are times when downtime is unavoidable, in those circumstances we display a maintenance page to ensure your visitors are informed.
