Some feedback, for the benefit of others, on the new 2.0 upgrade and a question :-)
I have just upgraded from 188.8.131.52 to 2.0 and have my old data being successfully pulled from SQL Server 2008. I followed the upgrade documentation
here. I created a new blank DB and used the Database Publishing Wizard to migrate my old data and then ran the DB upgrade script. Finally, I updated the SQLServerWeb.Config file in the setup folder and replaced the existing Web.Config file with it.
The first thing I noticed is that the login link does not work correctly. I'm aware that the login form is in a new "Account" folder and when I manually changed the URL in the browser address bar I was able to reach the login.
How do I fix the login link to point to the new login form location? When I use the master page in my custom theme folder, it won't resolve. It works with the new Standard theme. I feel like I'm missing something?
New master page:
<span runat="server" id="aUser"></span><a runat="server" id="aLogin" />
Old master page:
<li><a runat="server" id="aLogin" /></li>
The next problem was that my login user name and password was not recognized. Why was this if the DB info was scripted over to the new DB? I solved this by using the
WSAT tool in VS and creating another admin account, then deleting the old account which actually displayed in WSAT?
