How do we upgrade an Umbraco website?

The upgrading service follows this procedure

  1. You will need to provide us with your Umbraco website login details.
  2. We will advise you of any plugins that are currently incompatible and discuss this with you.
  3. We will make a full backup of your Umbraco website files and database.
  4. We will then restore the backup to create a cloned Umbraco website as your staging website.
  5. We will then upgrade the cloned website for you to verify. Although we can verify some of your website i.e. login and general page and extension errors, no one knows your website better than you. Each Umbraco installation is different with any combination of paid for and custom extensions (packages, macros etc) installed. Sometimes these extensions are not compatible with the updated version.
  6. Once you have validated your website we will backup and upgrade the production website. You will then need to validate the upgraded live Umbraco website.
