Upgrade from Source

Dec 19, 2007 at 1:43 AM
Those that download the latest checkins and upgrade there BE.Net what process do you go through.

It seems like everything I try i always break something to the point I can't use it. For some reason trackbacks don't work well, if at all, with wordpress blogs and BE.NET in 1.2 and I need them to work.

Any help on how to upgrade would be great. I would be fine waiting for 1.3, but I have no idea when that will be and I need trackbacks to be working ASAP.

I don't know about your trackback problems, but what I do is run WinDiff to compare the sources. If a file has changed, I either copy it over to the website or merge the changes with my own changes.

If you can check your copy into source control you can then apply all the updates and compare them that way. Undo checkouts on files you don't want changed and you can even apply specific changes. The upside is that you can alway revert back specific changes.

For file level comparison I use Beyond Compare integrated into VSTS.
