Upgrade Wizard Page
With the release of DotNetNuke 6.1.0 we added an Upgrade Wizard page.
This was explicitly done to aid our customers who are in hosted or other custom environments where:
- They have limited or no access to their web.config file
- They have limited or no IIS access/permissions so they cannot set an "AppOffline" page or redirect.
An upgrade to 6.1.0 will display this page:
In this case you have your upgrade key in web.config set to:
<add key="AutoUpgrade" value="true" />
This is the default setting and will protect the users mentioned in #1 and #2 above.
Those users not covered by #1 and #2 above can still create an App Off Line page, point to it, edit their upgrade key in web.config as:
<add key="AutoUpgrade" value="false" />
and manually trigger the upgrade.
The upgrade experience stays the same for these customers:
