Upgrade 1.3.0.1 to latest

Jun 29, 2009 at 8:15 PM

I am not clear on what I need to do to upgarde my WSS SLK site from 1.3.0.1 to the latest 1.3.1

The current site is up and running, a couple of courses are already in use on it. Can I upgrade without disrubting existing assignments?

I downloaded the the Upgrade to 1.3.1 zip file, I know there is a database upgrade script and a web part repalcement script, what else, do I first install the full 1.3.1 version?

Sorry if I have redundant or seemingly simple questions, but I don't want to mess up my existing site with the upgrade.

 

Thank you for the help.

1.    Install the 1.3.1 version first. Either by removing 1.3.01 completely and then installating 1.3.1 from scratch, or by running upgradesolution.cmd.

2.    Run the database upgrade script.

3.    Delete the existing web part from the web part gallery.

4.    Add the new web part to the gallery.

5.    Replace the web part on any sites. If it's only on a few you may as well do this manually.

6.    You may need to re-configure SLK in SharePoint Central Administration. Just put your existing database name in and ensure that the Create Database box is NOT ticked.
