- Verify that you are
currently using Version 12.
- Make a backup copy of
the entire /banmanpro/ folder on your web server as well as the SQL
database. This upgrade will alter the database and a backup is
required in the event of an error in the upgrade script.
- Extract the upgrade files contained in banmanproSQL14upgradeFrom12.zip
to a temporary location on your local computer. You will now see
several folders including RootDirectory, Admin, Images, Advertiser,
Bin, and Language.
- Version 14 includes changes to
the Root web.config file for the WYSIWYG Editor.
Because this file also holds your custom database connection string, you
must first enter your database connection into the web.config file
before copying the updated files. If you don't your database connection
will break after the upgrade. Also, if you added any custom tags to the
web.config they should also be transferred. To do so...
Open the web.config for your EXISTING installation of BanManPro. Find
and copy this line:
<add key="DBConnectionString" value="server=(LOCAL);UID=youruserid;PWD=yourpass;DATABASE=BanManPro"
Now, open the web.config found in the "banmanproSQL14upgradeFrom10\RootDirectory"
folder of the upgrade files. Replace the sample connection string with
your full connection string.
Save the file.
- From within SQL Query Analyzer,
execute the script called banmanproSQL14UpgradeFrom12.sql on your existing
Ban Man Pro database. The database is now converted to the new
format. If you are unsure how to do this, please review Steps
5-7 of the original database instructions found at:
and noting that in step 5 the SQL script is named banmanproSQL14UpgradeFrom12.sql.
- Copy the files from the directory called
"Root Directory" to the web server directory where Ban Man
Pro is installed. If you installed the software at
then that is where these files are to be copied. You will be
overwriting the existing files.
- Copy the files in the Images
directory to the images directory. This will most likely be...
- Copy the entire Admin, Advertiser,
App_Data, EditorDialogs, ImageEditorDialogs and Language folders into the folder where Ban Man Pro is installed. Be sure to
include all subdirectories.
- Copy the contents of the /bin/ folder
to your Ban Man Pro /bin/ folder. This will most likely be...
- Log into the Ban Man Pro admin console
and verify everything is working properly.
