Upgrade from InstantKB 1.3 to 2.06

Is it possible to upgrade from InstantKB 1.3 to 2.06? If not, what is the shortest upgrade path we could use?


Hi there,

Sorry for my long delay. We've been heads down the latest InstantKB.NET 2010 update recently which has not left me much time to post here.

Upgrading from 1.3 to 2.0.6 is certainly possible. We would suggest you install a fresh instance of InstantKB.NEt 2.0.6 and then create a back up of your 1.3 database.

Restore the back-up and execute the following scripts against your 1.3 database...
  • 1.3_to_2,0.0.sql
  • 2.0.0_to_2.0.1.sql
  • 2.0.1_to_2.0.2.sql
  • 2.0.2_to_2.0.3.sql
  • 2.0.3_to_2.0.4.sql
  • 2.0.4_to_2.0.5.sql
  • 2.0.5_to_2.0.6.sql
This will update your database schema to the 2.0.6 schema whilst keeping your existing data.

Update the connection string within your fresh 2.0.6 installation...


and point this to your updated 1.3 database.

Within your bwoser if your visit your 2.0.6 installation you should now see the default classic skin with all your existing articles. You can login using your existing admin email address & password.

To ensure all your attachments and image uploads from InstantKB.NET 1.3 continue to work correctly within InstantKB.NET 2.0 simply copy the "Attachments" folder & all it's contents from the root of your existing InstantKB.NET 1.3 installation into the root of your fresh InstantKB.NET 2.0 installation.
