Hello, I've been scouring the documentation for BlogEngine, in an attempt to find information about pointing my new installation of BE 3.1 to a Database that we have been using for BE 2.6.
I have found 2 pieces of information about how to modify this new BE 3.1 Installation:
- You need to modify connection string to point to your database and switch from XML to DB provider in these 3 places:
defaultProvider="XmlBlogProvider" -> defaultProvider="DbBlogProvider"
membership defaultProvider="XmlMembershipProvider" -> membership defaultProvider="DbMembershipProvider"
roleManager defaultProvider="XmlRoleProvider" -> roleManager defaultProvider="DbRoleProvider"
Could someone could clarify this? This is not very apparent. When I attempt to modify the web.config as mentioned, I get an error.
- I read that I should delete everything from the App_Data Folder of the new BE 3.1, then copy all of the contents from my previous BE 2.6 App_Data into that App_Data from BE 3.1.
I did that, but did not resolve the DB connectivity problem. Also what appeared in the Default Theme was "Welcome to BE 2.6"
Here is my test BE 3.1: http://blog.petcenters.com
Does anyone know of a better source or documentation about how I can go about connecting to a previous BE Database?
