Hello,

 

I have to redeploy blog engine because of a change to the master page.  From what I understand posts and all data are stored in the app data folder.  I copied it to the new deployment and the blog posts appeared but they are missing images.  Also I lost the user accounts login.  I can see the list of users but only the admin username/password work to login to the admin panel. 

 

Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance.

Were your passwords hashed or clear in your old web.config,  the default is hashed so if you didn't change it in your original web.config ignore this.

It all should be inside app_data folder. Verify you really have it there and check broken images paths - do they point to existing files?

Thanks for your responses.

It appears they are pointing to the same files:

I have not made changes to the original web.config

Actually it was something really simple...

We were working in a staging environment - we went live and all is good.  Thanks again!
