Mar 3, 2015 at 5:19 PM
Can anyone advise on upgrading BE 1.6.1 to 3.1? I have tried to do a new install of, clean install and works great. Then following what MGD_King did in this post (http://blogengine.codeplex.com/discussions/568018), but after copying in the Pages, Posts and Files folder/files, there was still only one post that showed in the blog... the clean install welcome to BlogEngine post.

I would greatly like to upgrade this blog without loosing all of the previous content.

Thanks for your help.

Sorry, forgot I posted this. A day or so later I tried exporting my blog to BlogML.xml and then imported it. I also uploaded the Files folder, for all the images and photos. That seemed to work just fine.

Thanks for the information though. I will admit I hadn't tried that, but it makes total sense that it would work, forcing .Net to recompile and review the content/posts.
