What should I do if upgrade process has failed?

Installation & Upgrade
Before you start upgrading your EP account to a newer version it's strongly recommended to backup both EP SQL database and EP installation folder. Backups allow you to rollback to a previous EP installation in case of the upgrade will fail.

If the upgrade failed you need to do the following:

1) Open the 'MS SQL Server Management Studio' and
restore Easy Projects database from a backup to a new name, or to existing one (in such case please make sure that the 'Overwrite the existing database' box is checked):


2) Delete all files from your EP installation folder:


and then copy EP files to the folder from a backup.

3) Make sure that your Easy Projects site or virtual application in IIS points to the EP installation folder, e.g. 'c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\EasyProjects\':




4) Make sure / set up a dedicated Easy Projects application pool in IIS to use the right version of ASP.NET (ASP.NET v2.0 for EP v7 and older, ASP.NET v4.0 for EP v8 and later):


Note that EP v7 and older uses the "Classic" managed pipeline mode of an application pool.

5) Once the above actions are completed try to open your Easy Projects website.
