    Pre 8.7 - 9.4 Upgrade Questions

    Just before I try this on my 3 sites, can I check that I am just overwriting (after taking a backup of course!) the files with the ones from the 9.4 upgrade download zip? Anything I should be aware of before I start?

    TIA

    backup the App_Data folder and restore it after. Download the v9.0 full, install that, replace folder from the backup, install the v9.4 upgrade

    You will need to backup your hapConfig.xml file, delete it and create a new one, sorry, there was an issue with the v8->v9 upgrade script that I wasn't able to figure out

    I tried that after seeing another post and the new file only had one line on it and would not do anything else. Will try again.

    New file created with just this in

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <hapConfig version="9.0.424.1200" local="en-GB" firstrun="True" />


    Then when browsing to the site it tries to go to https://links.malvernstjames.co.uk/Hap/setup.aspx but then reports no page found.

    Ok, that's an odd one, can you restore the web.config file form the main release?

    Yes, sorted that, thank you. I have now got another issue as the setup page is not displaying correctly but I will look at that.

    It's working but a text only version, going to upgrade to 9.6 first before trying to fix

    As soon as I try and edit hapconfig.xml file with my info (what files can be uploaded, drive mappings etc) I get Object reference not set to an instance of an object error again

    You will need to configure HAP+ again using the basics, a fair few settings have been changed which the upgrade script would of changed, but obviously it doesn't work sometimes. Sorry to say :-(

    No worries, just thought I would say. There must be something in there that has changed, I am trying to figure out which line of code is the issue to report back.
