Prerequisites

Instructions

This update requires the following files:

Follow the steps below to upgrade an existing Sitecore CMS and DMS 6.6.0 rev. 120918 (Initial Release) installation to Sitecore CMS and DMS 6.6.0 rev. 121015 (Update-1):

  1. Back up the site.
  2. Make sure that the IIS is configured to allow access to the /sitecore/admin folder. Otherwise the next step might display a blank page instead of the Update Installation Wizard.
  3. Open the Update Installation Wizard by entering the following URL in your browser: http://<hostname>/sitecore/admin/UpdateInstallationWizard.aspx
    See the Update Installation Wizard Guide for more information about how to use the wizard.
  4. Install the Sitecore CMS 6.6.0 rev. 121015 update package using the wizard:
    1. Upload the update package using the wizard.
    2. Analyze the package.
    3. Install the package.
  5. If you have enabled Sitecore MVC in your solution, copy the most recent versions of the MVC DLLs from the /bin_Net4 folder to the /bin folder
  6. Update your configuration files.
  7. In the initial 6.6 release, newly added actions in an engagement plan could fail to execute without any errors or any sign of failure in the log file. If you have created or edited any engagement plans in CMS 6.6 or used the ECM module, perform the following steps to check if you are affected by this problem:
    • Open the Developer Center » Tools » XPath Builder
    • Execute the following Sitecore Query expression:/sitecore/system/Marketing Center//*[@@templatekey='engagement automation action' and @Type='']
    • If the query returns any result, locate these items in the Content Editor and fill out the "Type" field with the value from the definition item for the action (which can be located by searching for the GUID in the "Origin ID" field)
    • Clear your browser's cache. For instance, in Internet Explorer this is done via the menu Tools » Internet Options » Browsing History » Delete » Delete Temporary Internet Files.
    • Rebuild your search indexes for the "Quick search index" (also for the master and core databases if you have such indexes) and rebuild the link database for the master and the core databases. You can do this using the wizards available on the Sitecore desktop: Sitecore » Control Panel » Database.
    • If you are using client languages other than English, download and import the latest translations from the Client Translations page on SDN.
    • Delete the <webroot>/temp/dictionary.dat file to regenerate the Dictionary (only necessary if any of your editors use other client languages than English).
    • Publish the entire site (including system items, templates etc.) to every publishing target you have. To do it run Sitecore » Publish Site dialog. The "Republish" option is recommended. 
    • Check if any installed modules needs to be upgraded to a newer version to be compatible with Sitecore CMS 6.6.
    • Reiterate the update procedure for every Sitecore instance in your Sitecore environment.
