Hi I have been using this starter kit since last 1 and a half year. A lot of bugs have been fixed and many new cool features have been added to the kit since the version that I used on the site. 

Could you please let me know how to upgrade my site to the latest version without losing the content and other date wise data like the comments, news list etc. on my site.

Thank you very much in anticipation.

Tukel --

This is just a guess.

I have never upgraded a site-- but, if I had to, then I would do the following...

Make a copy of my old-site and set it up on my local machine.

Download the latest and greatest Mwpsk and set it up as a new-site on my local machine.

Copy the "App_Data" folder in the old-site and paste it over the "App_Data" folder in the new-site and replace when prompted.

Copy custom themes from "App_Themes" in the old-site and put them in the "App_Themes" folder of the new-site.

Test it.

That should be close.

If it works, then I would deploy the new site.

This is just a guess.


Thank you.
