Backing up a DNN Site

15 Sep

DotNetNuke site administrators often are tasked with maintaining their sites as well as ensuring that a proper backup/recovery plan is in place.  An important part of this is to have a proper site backup, therefore I am re-visiting my two previous versions of backup guides in this updated article.  I will walk though the items needed for backup, and considerations when creating the backup, specifically if you are looking to migrate a site to a different server.  I will then discuss the process to create a backup in both SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005, and lastly I will quickly touch on the third party options available for performing site backups.

Upgrade to DNN 4.9.0 from 4.6.2 or Later

04 Sep

I have previously blogged about the streamlined upgrade process that can be used to upgrade sites starting with version 4.6.2 and later.  With the upcoming release of DotNetNuke 4.9.0 (targeted for next week) I thought I would take some time to get all of my installation guides updated, with the most current information to ensure that everyone was ready for the new version as soon as it comes out.  Given the enhancements provided to the core in 4.6.2 the upgrade process from this version and later is VERY simple!  The following two step process will help you upgrade to your site to the most current version.  Instructions are also included regarding items of consideration for users in shared hosting environments.
