      • If your user schema name is different or if you have additional Sitecore user schemas, modify the batch file as necessary (but do not add the core, master and web schemas – they use a different database schema and should not be upgraded).
    4. Shut down Sitecore.
    5. Back up your Sitecore schemas.
    6. Upgrade your DMS database schema.

        • PASSWORD = Password for the system user of the Oracle instance.
        • PREFIX = Prefix for the Sitecore DMS user schema and its password (default value: 'sc').
          • Notice that user password is expected to be the same as the user name.

      9.2.  Upgrade Instructions

      To upgrade a previous Sitecore CMS 6 version to this release, refer to one of the following pages, depending on the version you upgrade from.

      9.2.1.  Instructions for Upgrading from Sitecore CMS 6.5

      To upgrade a previous Sitecore CMS 6 version to this release:

      Prerequisites

      Instructions

      This update requires the following files:

      Follow the steps below to upgrade an existing Sitecore CMS 6.5.0 and DMS 2.0.0 installation to Sitecore CMS 6.6.0 and DMS 6.6.0 rev. 120918:

      1. Backup the site.
      2. If you have Sitecore Analytics installed, upgrade the DMS database schema:
        • SQL Server: Execute the DMS660_BeforeInstall.sql script on your Sitecore Analytics database.
          Note: While you execute the script, you can get warnings about disabled constraints. This behavior is expected.
        • Oracle: Execute Oracle_DMS660_BeforeInstall.bat. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      3. 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.
      4. 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.
      5. Install the Sitecore CMS 6.6.0 rev. 120918 update package using the wizard:
        1. Upload the update package using the wizard.
        2. Analyze the package.
        3. Install the package.

        Note: The upgrade process might fail with the following error message: "Could not load file or assembly 'Lucene.Net, Version=X.X.X.X, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference."
        This error happens because Sitecore CMS 6.6 uses a new strongly-named version of Lucene.NET and can occur if one of the installed modules or your custom code refers to an old version of Lucene.NET.
        To fix this, disable any modules and custom code in your solution that depends on Lucene.NET, then rerun the process. If you cannot determine the exact module or code that should be disabled, or if your changes do not resolve the problem, please contact Sitecore Product Support Services.
      6. Upgrade the CMS database schemas:
        • SQL Server: Execute the CMS660_AfterInstall.sql script on core, master, web databases.
        • Oracle: Execute the Oracle_CMS660_AfterInstall.bat file. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      7. Update your configurations files:
      8. If you are upgrading from 6.5 Update-3 or earlier, it is recommended to perform the following steps:
        • If you have customized any of Engagement Analytics existing reports or created your own reports, the SQL statements for the reports might contain a "WITH (NOEXPAND)" hint. This hint only works with indexed views and should therefore be removed from the SQL.
        • If you have Analytics installed, it is recommended to run the Control Panel > Analytics > Refresh Aggregated Data in Reports wizard before you go live with the upgraded solution.
      9. If you are upgrading from 6.5 Update-1 or earlier, start Sitecore and check which language the Sitecore login page is displayed in. It might no longer be displayed in English, depending on the value of the "DefaultLanguage" web.config setting. To switch the login page language, add a language="en" attribute to the "login" site definition.
      10. 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.
      11. Rebuild your search indexes for the "Quick search index" (and 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 via the Sitecore desktop link Sitecore » Control Panel » Database.
      12. If you are using client languages other than English, download and import the latest translations from the Client Translations page on SDN.
      13. Delete the <webroot>/temp/dictionary.dat file to regenerate the Dictionary (only necessary if any of your editors use other client languages than English).
      14. 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. 
      15. Check if any installed modules needs to be upgraded to a newer version to be compatible with Sitecore CMS 6.6.
      16. Reiterate the update procedure for every Sitecore instance in your Sitecore environment.

      To upgrade a previous Sitecore CMS 6 version to this release:

      Prerequisites

      System requirements

      Supported SQL Server versions

      The initial release of CMS 6.5 and DMS 2.0 only supports Microsoft SQL Server.

      Instructions

      Note: A new version of the update package was uploaded on August 19, 2011. It is recommended to use the new version of the package instead of the old one for upgrading, while solutions already upgraded with the old version of the update package should not be upgraded once again.

      This update requires the following files:

      If you are updating from any of the CMS 6.4.0 releases, the following files are also required:

      Important: If you are running OMS 1, you must upgrade to DMS 2 when you upgrade from CMS 6.4 to 6.5. Please read the instructions for upgrading to DMS 2 before you begin the upgrade to CMS 6.5/DMS. As mentioned in these instructions, you must upgrade the CMS and have a working CMS 6.5 solution before you start upgrading your OMS production database.

      Follow the steps below to upgrade an existing Sitecore CMS 6.4.0 installation to Sitecore CMS 6.5.0 rev. 110602:

      1. Important: If you you are upgrading from Sitecore CMS 6.4, you should continue upgrading to version 6.5 Update-2 or later after installing this update. The system will not work as expected if you stop the upgrade process at version 6.5.0 Initial release.
      2. Back up the site.
      3. Upgrade the database schema, step 1. Notice that you do not need to perform this step if the solution already is based on 6.4.1 (or if the solution was upgraded from 6.3.1 to 6.4).
        • SQL Server: Execute the CMS641_BeforeInstall.sql script on each of your Sitecore databases (core, master, web and any custom Sitecore databases, but excluding the Analytics database and any Sitecore module databases you have installed).
        • Oracle: Execute Oracle_CMS641_BeforeInstall.bat. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      4. Disable Sitecore Analytics and modules that make use of Sitecore Analytics:
        • If you have Sitecore Analytics installed, disable analytics by renaming the Sitecore.Analytics.config file to Sitecore.Analytics.config.disabled. Otherwise the post-step of the update package will fail to execute.
        • If you have installed the E-mail Campaign Manager module, disable it by renaming the Sitecore.EmailCampaign.config file to Sitecore.EmailCampaign.config.disabled. Otherwise the post-step of the update package will fail to execute.
        • If you have installed the Web Forms for Marketers module, disable it by renaming the forms.config file to forms.config.disabled. Otherwise the post-step of the update package will fail to execute.
      5. 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..
      6. If you are updating from 6.4.1 Update-4 or later, modify the web.config file:
        • Add a comment around the SitecoreRewriteModule in the <system.webServer><modules> section:
          <!-- <add type="Sitecore.Web.RewriteModule, Sitecore.Kernel" name="SitecoreRewriteModule"/> -->
        • Also add a comment around the SitecoreRewriteModule in the <system.web><httpModules> section if you have such a line:
          <!-- <add type="Sitecore.Web.RewriteModule, Sitecore.Kernel" name="SitecoreRewriteModule"/> -->
      7. 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.
      8. Install the Sitecore CMS 6.5.0 rev. 110602 update package using the wizard:
        1. Upload the update package using the wizard.
        2. Analyze the package.
        3. Install the package.
      9. Open the \Website\Global.asax file and check that it contains the following line:     
        <%@Application Language='C#' Inherits="Sitecore.Web.Application" %>
        If the inherits attribute is not present, please change the file to inherit from Sitecore.Web.Application. Otherwise the "sessionEnd" pipeline will not work as expected. 
      10. Upgrade the database schema, step 2. Notice that you do not need to perform this step if the solution already is based on 6.4.1 (or if the solution was upgraded from 6.3.1 to 6.4).
        • SQL Server: Execute the CMS641_PostInstall.sql script on each of your Sitecore databases (core, master, web and any custom Sitecore databases, but excluding the Analytics database and any Sitecore module databases you have installed). This script updates the database schema to Sitecore CMS 6.4.1. The script also updates the schema with a number of changes that were applied to the clean databases in 6.4 Update-1 to ensure that the database schema is consistent across the Sitecore databases.
        • Oracle: Execute Oracle_CMS641_PostInstall.sql.bat. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      11. Update your configuration files.
      12. Log in to the Sitecore Desktop, and install the Sitecore Analytics Role Package, using the Installation Wizard available via Sitecore »Development Tools » Installation Wizard. Choose "Overwrite" every time when prompted.
        • Alternatively, you can manually create the following 2 roles in the "sitecore" domain: “sitecore\Analytics Testing” and “sitecore\Analytics Personalization”. For each of these two roles, click “Member Of” and make the role member of the “sitecore\Sitecore Client Users” role, then click “Members” and add the “sitecore\Author” role as a member.
      13. To avoid certain exceptions in the log file when visitors browse the front-end site, perform the following steps:
        • Open the Content Editor and navigate to the "/sitecore/system/Settings/Rules/Conditional Renderings" item.
        • Perform the "Publish Item" operation with the “Publish Subitems” option checked.
      14. 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.
      15. 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.
      16. Delete the <webroot>/temp/dictionary.dat file to regenerate the Dictionary (only necessary if any of your editors use other client languages than English).
      17. If you have a Sitecore Analytics database, you must upgrade your solution to 6.5 Update-5 (perform just steps, which are related to CMS updating) or later before upgrading your Analytics database.
      18. After you have upgraded the solution to 6.5 Update-5 or later, you are now ready to upgrade the Analytics database by following the instructions for upgrading to DMS.
      19. After successfully upgrading the Analytics database, enable analytics by renaming the Sitecore.Analytics.config.disabled file back to Sitecore.Analytics.config.
      20. 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. 
      21. Upgrade and re-enable modules that make use of Sitecore Analytics:
        • If you have the E-mail Campaign Manager module installed, you are now ready to upgrade it by following the instructions for upgrading to ECM 1.3.
        • After successfully upgrading the E-mail Campaign Manager module, enable it by renaming the EmailCampaign.config.disabled file back to EmailCampaign.config.
        • If you have the Web Forms for Marketers module installed, you are now ready to upgrade it by following the instructions for upgrading to WFFM 2.3.
        • After successfully upgrading the Web Forms for Marketers module, enable it by renaming the forms.config.disabled file back to forms.config.
      22. Upgrade the modules that have a compatible version for Sitecore CMS 6.5:
      23. Reiterate the update procedure for every Sitecore instance in your Sitecore environment.

      Instructions for upgrading the database schema of Oracle databases
      You will need the following files:

      The zip file contains four files:

      Upgrade steps:

      1. Extract the SQL script and the batch file from the zip archive.
      2. Copy the SQL script and the batch file to the Database Server (or to the PC where the administration tools for the Oracle database are installed and set up).
      3. By default, the upgrade scripts will process three user schemas: sccore, scmaster, and scweb (the actual names depend on the value of the PREFIX environment variable).
        • If your user schema names are different or if you have additional Sitecore user schemas, modify the batch file as necessary (but do not add the Analytics schema – it uses a different database schema and should not be upgraded).
      4. Shut down Sitecore.
      5. Back up your Sitecore schemas.
      6. Upgrade your database schema.
        • In System Properties/Advanced/Environment Variables set up user-level variables as follows:
          • DATABASE = The name of the database instance that hosts the Sitecore data.
          • PASSWORD = Password for the system user of the Oracle instance.
          • PREFIX = Prefix for the Sitecore user schemas and their passwords (default value: 'sc').
          • Notice that user passwords are expected to be the same as the user names.
          • Launch Oracle_CMS641_BeforeInstall.bat or Oracle_CMS641_PostInstall.sql.bat.
          • Review the output of the script for errors.
          • Remove the DATABASE, PASSWORD and PREFIX variables from the environment.
      7. Start Sitecore.
      8. Continue with the CMS 6.4 to 6.5 upgrade procedure as described above. Notice that after completing the upgrade to 6.5 rev. 110602, you must update your solution to 6.5 Update-1 (or later), since the initial CMS 6.5 release does not have Oracle support.

      17.2.2.  Use these instructions to upgrade Sitecore OMS 1 to DMS 2

      To upgrade Sitecore OMS 1 to DMS 2:

      Prerequisites

      Important: Please read the instructions for upgrading to DMS 2 in A4 or in US-Letter format before you begin the upgrade to CMS 6.5/ DMS. As mentioned in these instructions, you must upgrade the CMS and have a working CMS 6.5 solution before you start upgrading your OMS production database to DMS.

      Notice: Upgrading to DMS is performed in two steps. The second step can be time consuming, but can be performed after you go live with CMS 6.5/DMS 2.0.

      The most recent version of the tool is only compatible with 6.5 Update-5 and later.

      Instructions

      Choose the following link to download the Sitecore Analytics Upgrade Tool and the associated documentation for the tool:

      Notice: The initial version of the Analytics Upgrade Tool has been replaced with a new release of the tool which is more stable and which converts historical data significantly faster than the previous versions of the tool. See the Analytics Upgrade Tool rev. 120810 release notes for details. The new tool requires you to upgrade to 6.5 Update-5 or later before running the tool.

      If you want to download an empty DMS database, choose the following link:

      Follow the steps below to upgrade an existing OMS 1.1.1 installation to DMS 2.0.1:

      1. Read the entire Sitecore Analytics Upgrade Tool Guide before you begin to make yourself familiar with the process.
      2. Update the Sitecore.Analytics.config file. The easiest way to do so is to take the clean Sitecore.Analytics.config file from the target version that you are upgrading to and applying any changes that you require. 
      3. Back up the Analytics database.
      4. Before transferring metadata to the new Analytics database, upgrade your Sitecore 6.5 solution to the version that you require (must be 6.5 Update-5 or later).
      5. Upgrade from OMS to DMS using the Sitecore Analytics Upgrade Tool. Make sure to follow the instructions in the Sitecore Analytics Upgrade Tool Guide to first transfer meta-data to the DMS database and later transfer all the collected analytics information from your OMS database to the new DMS database.
      6. After the historical analytics data has been converted in Step 3 of the Analytics Upgrade Tool, perform the following steps. These steps convert the structure of campaign items from OMS to DMS, as well as updating the DeviceName and Language columns in the Pages and Visits tables:
        • Ensure that Analytics is enabled and that the connection string is pointing to the converted DMS database.
        • Download the actions.aspx.zip file and extract it.
        • Copy the page to the /sitecore/admin folder of the upgraded solution.
        • The ASPX page is self-contained and uses inline C# code. This allows you to easily modify the page and add your own logic if you have special requirements for upgrading campaign items.
        • Open the page and click the Start button.
        • The page informs you about the conversion process, including information about skipped items (such as campaign folders that do not need to be upgraded).
        • After converting the item structure, the ASPX page can be deleted.

      Prerequisites

      This update requires the following files:

      If you are updating from any of the CMS 6.4.0 releases, the following files are also required:

      Follow the steps below to upgrade an existing Sitecore CMS 6.4.0 installation to Sitecore CMS 6.4.1 rev.120113 (also known as 6.4.1 Update-6):

      1. Back up the site.
      2. Upgrade the database schema, step 1. Notice that you do not need to perform this step if the solution already is based on 6.4.1 (or if the solution was upgraded from 6.3.1 to 6.4).
        • SQL Server: Execute the CMS641_BeforeInstall.sql script on each of your Sitecore databases (core, master, web and any custom Sitecore databases, but excluding the Analytics database and any Sitecore module databases you have installed).
        • Oracle: Execute Oracle_CMS641_BeforeInstall.bat. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      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.

        • SQL Server: Execute the CMS641_PostInstall.sql script on each of your Sitecore databases (core, master, web and any custom Sitecore databases, but excluding the Analytics database and any Sitecore module databases you have installed). This script updates the database schema to Sitecore CMS 6.4.1. The script also updates the schema with a number of changes that were applied to the clean databases in 6.4 Update-1 to ensure that the database schema is consistent across the Sitecore databases.
        • Oracle: Execute Oracle_CMS641_PostInstall.sql.bat. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      6. Update your Web.config file.
      7. Ensure that your web.config file located in the /sitecore_files folder contains the changes described in the appropriate section of the Web.config changes in CMS 6.4.1 rev. 120113 page. Otherwise, WebDAV functionality will not work as expected
      8. 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.
      9. Rebuild search indexes and the link database in the master and the core databases. You can do this using the wizards available via the Sitecore desktop link Sitecore» Control Panel » Database.
      10. If you are using client languages other than English, download and import the latest translations from the Client Translations page on SDN.
        • If you are using the Danish client language, make sure to perform this step if you are upgrading from 6.4.1 or later, since the update package cannot correctly install all phrases.
      11. Delete the <webroot>/temp/dictionary.dat file to regenerate the Dictionary (only necessary if any of your editors use other client languages than English).
      12. Check if any installed modules need to be upgraded to a newer version to be compatible with Sitecore CMS 6.4.
      13. Reiterate the update procedure for every Sitecore instance in your Sitecore environment.

      Instructions for upgrading the database schema of Oracle databases

      You will need the following files:

      The zip file contains four files:

      Upgrade steps:

      1. Extract the SQL script and the batch file from the zip archive.
      2. Copy the SQL script and the batch file to the Database Server (or to the PC where the administration tools for the Oracle database are installed and set up).
      3. By default, the upgrade scripts will process three user schemas: sccore, scmaster, and scweb (the actual names depend on the value of the PREFIX environment variable).
        • If your user schema names are different or if you have additional Sitecore user schemas, modify the batch file as necessary (but do not add the Analytics schema – it uses a different database schema and should not be upgraded).
      4. Shut down Sitecore.
      5. Back up your Sitecore schemas.
      6. Upgrade your database schema.
        • In System Properties/Advanced/Environment Variables set up user-level variables as follows:
          • DATABASE = The name of the database instance that hosts the Sitecore data.
          • PASSWORD = Password for the system user of the Oracle instance.
          • PREFIX = Prefix for the Sitecore user schemas and their passwords (default value: 'sc').
            • Notice that user passwords are expected to be the same as the user names.
            • Launch Oracle_CMS641_BeforeInstall.bat or Oracle_CMS641_PostInstall.sql.bat.
            • Review the output of the script for errors.
            • Remove the DATABASE, PASSWORD and PREFIX variables from the environment.
      7. Start Sitecore.
      8. Continue with the CMS 6.4 to 6.4.1 Update-6 upgrade procedure as described above.

      The zip file contains four files:

      Upgrade steps:

      1. Extract the SQL script and the batch file from the zip archive.
      2. Copy the SQL script and the batch file to the Database Server (or to the PC where the administration tools for the Oracle database are installed and set up).
      3. By default, the upgrade scripts will process three user schemas: sccore, scmaster, and scweb (the actual names depend on the value of the PREFIX environment variable).
        • If your user schema names are different or if you have additional Sitecore user schemas, modify the batch file as necessary (but do not add the Analytics schema – it uses a different database schema and should not be upgraded).
      4. Shut down Sitecore.
      5. Back up your Sitecore schemas.
      6. Upgrade your database schema.
        • In System Properties/Advanced/Environment Variables set up user-level variables as follows:
          • DATABASE = The name of the database instance that hosts the Sitecore data.
          • PASSWORD = Password for the system user of the Oracle instance.
          • PREFIX = Prefix for the Sitecore user schemas and their passwords (default value: 'sc').
            • Notice that user passwords are expected to be the same as the user names.
            • Launch Oracle_CMS641_BeforeInstall.bat or Oracle_CMS641_PostInstall.sql.bat.
            • Review the output of the script for errors.

      2. Upgrade the database schema, step 1 (this step can be skipped if you are upgrading from 6.3.1 or later):
        • SQL Server: Execute the CMS641_BeforeInstall.sql script on each of your Sitecore databases (core, master, web and any custom Sitecore databases, but excluding the Analytics database and any Sitecore module databases you have installed).
        • Oracle: Execute Oracle_CMS641_BeforeInstall.bat. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      3. Open the Update Installation Wizard by entering the following URL in your browser: http://<hostname>/sitecore/admin/UpdateInstallationWizard.aspx

This script updates the database schema to Sitecore CMS 6.4.1. The script also updates the schema with a number of changes that were applied to the clean databases in 6.4 Update-1 to ensure that the database schema is consistent across the Sitecore databases.
        • Oracle: Execute Oracle_CMS641_PostInstall.sql.bat. Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      7. Update your web.config file.
      8. 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.
      9. Rebuild search indexes and the link database in the master and the core databases. You can do this using the wizards available via the Sitecore desktop link Sitecore » Control Panel » Database.
      10. If you are using client languages other than English, download and import the latest translations from the Client Translations page on SDN.
      11. Delete the <webroot>/temp/dictionary.dat file to regenerate the Dictionary (only necessary if any of your editors use other client languages than English).
      12. Check if any installed modules need to be upgraded to a newer version to be compatible with Sitecore CMS 6.5.
      13. Reiterate the update procedure for every Sitecore instance in your Sitecore environment.

      Instructions for downloading and installing Sitecore CMS 6.3.0 Initial Rel.(rev. 100716).

      This is an old CMS 6.3.0 update.
      You should only use this update as an interim update when upgrading from Sitecore CMS 6.2 to CMS 6.3.1 or later.

      Important: If you are upgrading from Sitecore CMS 6.2.0, you should continue upgrading to version 6.3.1 or later and not stop the upgrade process at version 6.3.0.

      Choose the appropriate link to download Sitecore CMS 6.3.0 Initial Rel.(rev. 100716):

      You may also want to consider downloading additional tools:

      To upgrade a previous Sitecore CMS 6 version to this release:

      Prerequisites:

      This update requires the following files:

      Important: Sitecore 6.3.0 rev. 100716 and 6.3.0 Update-1 (rev. 100830) do not include the fixes that are included in 6.2 Update-4 (rev. 100831). If you are upgrading from 6.2 Update-4 (or later), you should install this update only if the target version you are upgrading to is 6.3 Update-2 or later 6.3 versions.

      Important: A number of 3rd party DLLs have been updated to newer versions in CMS 6.3 (ComponentArt.Web.UI.dll, Newtonsoft.Json.dll, and the Stimulsoft DLLs). You might have to update and recompile your code if you are referencing these DLLs from your code. Also, CMS 6.3 itself contains a small number of breaking API changes that could require you to change and recompile your code if you are using these specific parts of the API.

      Important: If you are using Staging module for Sitecore CMS, it should be uninstalled when upgrading to Sitecore CMS 6.3. Refer to these instructions to uninstall the Staging module. Refer to this article for information about new features in Sitecore CMS that make the Staging module obsolete.

      Important
      : If the Configuring Production Environments document was applied to your multi-instance environment, it is recommended to revert the changes. Instead, updated instructions from the Scaling Guide document should be used.

      Follow the steps below to upgrade an existing Sitecore CMS 6.2.0 rev.091012 or later installation to Sitecore CMS 6.3.0 rev. 100716 (also known as 6.3.0 Initial Rel.):

      1. Important: If you are upgrading from Sitecore CMS 6.2.0, you should continue upgrading to version 6.3.1 or later after installing this update. The system will not work as expected if you stop the upgrade process at version 6.3.0.
      2. Back up the site.
      3. If you are updating from 6.2.0 rev. 091012, update the web.config file with the changes between rev. 091012 and rev. 100104 before you continue.
      4. 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.
      5. Install the Sitecore CMS 6.3.0 rev. 100716 update package using the Wizard. Some expected collisions may occur, see the Note about expected collisions below for details. 
        1. Upload the update package using the Wizard.
        2. Analyze the package.
        3. Install the package.
      6. Update your web.config document to the current version step-by-step:
        1. Web.config changes in CMS 6.2.0 rev. 100104 (if you did not already apply them before installing the CMS 6.3 update package).
        2. Web.config changes in CMS 6.2.0 rev. 100507
        3. Web.config changes in CMS 6.2.0 rev. 100701
        4. Web.config changes in CMS 6.3.0 rev. 100716
      7. Upgrade the database schema:
        • SQL Server: Execute the SitecoreCMS630.sql script on each of your Sitecore databases (core, master, web and any custom Sitecore databases, but excluding the Analytics database and any Sitecore module databases you have installed). This will update the database schema to Sitecore CMS 6.3.0.
        • Oracle: Please refer to the Oracle-specific instructions at the bottom of this page.
      8. The /bin/Interop.Shell32.dll file is no longer used by Sitecore. It is recommended to remove this file (unless any of your custom code depends on it).
      9. 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.
      10. Rebuild search indexes and the link database in the master and the core databases. You can do this using the wizards available via the Sitecore desktop link Sitecore » Control Panel » Database.
      11. If you are updating from 6.2.0 rev. 091012: Check if any of the Sitecore log files contain warnings that one or more Sitecore performance counters do not exist (hint: search for "Using temporary internal counter") or that one or more Sitecore counters cannot be instantiated because the category is marked as single-instance (hint: search for "single-instance"). To resolve this problem:
        1. Download sitecorecounters.zip.
        2. Unzip the archive.
        3. Run the SitecoreCounters.exe program to re-register the Sitecore performance counters.
      12. Reiterate the update procedure for every Sitecore instance in your Sitecore environment.

      Optional steps:

      1. It is recommended to install updated translations to the Sitecore client languages:
        • Translation updates are available on the CMS 6.3 Client Translations page.
        • Notice that the CMS 6.3 update package automatically updates the English, Danish and Japanese client languages with new and changed phrases, but it is a good idea to check if a more up-to-date translation is available.
      2. If you already had a Japanese language node in the 6.2 core database, you will now have two Japanese language nodes. It is recommended to delete the old one by following these steps:
        1. Set the "Languages.AutoRemoveItemData" setting in the web.config file to "false".
        2. Remove the old Japanese language item in the core database (the new one has ID: {F3AE1386-24EF-45F1-9389-755FDFA9C4C8}).
        3. Change the "Languages.AutoRemoveItemData" setting back to its previous value.
      3. It is recommended to delete following files, since SQLite is no longer supported:
        • /App_Config/ConnectionStringsSQLite.config
        • /web.config.SQLite

      Note about expected collisions:

      If you are upgrading from a release later than Sitecore CMS 6.2.0 rev. 091012, you will see warnings that a number of files have been modified and will be overwritten. This is expected behavior for the following files (you might only see some of the warnings, depending on which release you are upgrading from).

      Instructions for upgrading the database schema of Oracle databases

      You will need the following files:

      The zip files contains two files:

      Upgrade steps:

      1. Extract the SQL script and the batch file from the zip archive.
      2. Copy the SQL script and the batch file to the Database Server (or to the PC where the administration tools for the Oracle database are installed and set up).
      3. By default, the upgrade scripts will process three user schemas: sccore, scmaster, and scweb (the actual names depend on the value of the PREFIX environment variable).
        • If your user schema names are different or if you have additional Sitecore user schemas, modify the batch file as necessary (but do not add the Analytics schema – it uses a different database schema and should not be upgraded).
      4. Shut down Sitecore.
      5. Back up your Sitecore schemas.
      6. Upgrade your database schema.
        • In System Properties/Advanced/Environment Variables set up user-level variables as follows:
          • DATABASE = The name of the database instance that hosts the Sitecore data.
          • PASSWORD = Password for the system user of the Oracle instance.
          • PREFIX = Prefix for the Sitecore user schemas and their passwords (default value: 'sc').
            • Notice that user passwords are expected to be the same as the user names.
            • Launch UpgradeCMS630.bat.
            • Review the output of the script for errors.
            • Remove the DATABASE, PASSWORD and PREFIX variables from the environment.
      7. Start Sitecore.
      8. Continue with the CMS 6.2 to 6.3 upgrade procedure as described above.

      2. The file size of the update package is now considerably smaller.
      3. A new step about moving the /data/webdav.lic file was added to the instructions. This file was missing from the previous 6.1 to 6.2 update package. If you used the old update package to upgrade your solution, download the webdav.lic file and place it in your data folder (the folder that contains the regular Sitecore license).

      Prerequisites

      This upgrade requires the following files:

      Follow the steps below to upgrade an existing Sitecore CMS 6.1.0 installation to Sitecore CMS 6.2.0 rev. 091012:

      1. Important: If you are upgrading from Sitecore CMS 6.1.0, you should continue upgrading to version 6.3.0 or later after installing this update. The system will not work as expected if you stop the upgrade process at version 6.2.0.
      2. Back up the site.
      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 6.2.0 rev. 091012 update package using the Wizard. Some expected collisions may occur, see the “Note about expected collisions” below for details.
        1. Upload the update package using the wizard.
          Note: The upload might fail due to the large file size. If you run into this problem, move the update package manually to the /sitecore/admin/Packages folder. Alternatively, you can increase the value of the maxRequestLength attribute of the configuration\system.web\httpRuntime element in the web.config file to allow upload of the large update package.
        2. Analyze the package.
        3. Install the package.
      5. Rename the following files:
        1. Rename "/App_Config/Security/Domains.config.xml" to "Domains.config"
        2. Rename "/App_Config/Security/GlobalRoles.config.xml" to "GlobalRoles.config"
      6. Update the following configuration files. You can find the exact strings to update on the Web.config Changes page.
        1. /Web.config
        2. /App_Config/Commands.config
        3. /App_Config/FieldTypes.config
      7. Configure the Analytics Data Provider (App_Confog/Include/Sitecore.Analytics.config):
        • For SQL server:
          <analyticsManager defaultProvider="default">
          <providers>
          <clear/>
          <add name="default" 
          type="Sitecore.Analytics.Data.DataProviders.AnalyticsProviderSqlServer,  
          Sitecore.Analytics"/>
          </providers>
          </analyticsManager>
        • For Oracle:
          <analyticsManager defaultProvider="default">
          <providers>
          <clear/>
          <add name="default" 
          type="Sitecore.Analytics.Data.DataProviders.AnalyticsProviderOracle, 
          Sitecore.Oracle"/>
          </providers>
          </analyticsManager>"
      8. If you are upgrading from Sitecore 6.1.0 rev. 090630, you must also apply the changes mentioned on the Web.config Changes in rev. 090722 compared to rev. 090630 page. This step is not necessary if you are upgrading from 6.1.0 rev.090722 or 6.1.0 rev.090821.
      9. Move the /indexes folder to your "data" folder (the folder that is defined in the dataFolder variable in the web.config file).
        Alternatively, change the new IndexFolder setting from "$(dataFolder)/indexes" to "/indexes" and keep the folder in its current location.
      10. If your data folder is placed outside the webroot, move the file <webroot>/data/webdav.lic to your data folder (the folder that is defined in the dataFolder variable in the web.config file).
      11. 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.
      12. Rebuild search indexes and the link database in the master and in the core databases. You can do this using the wizards available via the Sitecore desktop link Sitecore » Control Panel » Database.
      13. Consider to perform the optional steps below, including the clean-up.
      14. Reiterate the update procedure for every Sitecore instance in your Sitecore environment.

      Optional steps

      1. The /sitecore/shell/Security.templates.xml file is no longer used by Sitecore and can be deleted.
      2. The following files in the /sitecore/admin folder are obsolete and should be deleted if you don't use them:
        • CompareSubtrees.aspx
        • DumpIndex.aspx
        • Reflect.aspx
        • SizeTester.aspx
        • UnitTestCacheClear.aspx
        • UnitTestLogin.aspx
      3. By default, Sitecore CMS 6.2.0 will use theme icons stored in zip-files. You can delete old icons and folders in the \sitecore\shell\Themes\Standard folder if they are not used for custom purposes and if you haven't added custom icons to any of the folders. Be careful not to delete any of the following folders:
        • ComponentArt
        • Custom
        • Default
        • Firefox
        • Gradients
        • Images
        • Internet Explorer
        • Reports  

      Clean-up

      The update package installs *.config files side-by-side to the original files to make it easier to merge configuration file changes. It is recommended to remove these extra config files after updating. This typically applies to the following files:

      45.1.  How to Upgrade an Installation

      To upgrade a previous Sitecore CMS 6 version to this release:  

      To install the update on the existing Sitecore CMS 6.0.0 installation, follow the instructions below: 

      1. Backup the site. 
      2. Install the update package using the Installation Wizard available via the Sitecore desktop link Sitecore » Development Tools » Installation Wizard. Choose "Overwrite" every time when prompted.
        Note: Installing of the package may take long time.
      3. If you are upgrading from version earlier than Sitecore 6.0.0 Update rev. 081222, remove the rest.aspx file from the /webroot/sitecore/ folder.
      4. Update the web.config file. See the web.config changes page for details.
      5. Add the following line to /App_Config/FieldTypes.config:
        <fieldType name="TreelistEx" type="Sitecore.Data.Fields.MultilistField,Sitecore.Kernel" />
      6. If you are using SQL databases run the following script for your master database:
        CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [ndxBlobId] ON [dbo].[Blobs]
        (
            [BlobId] ASC
        )
        WITH (SORT_IN_TEMPDB = OFF, DROP_EXISTING = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ONLINE = OFF) ON [PRIMARY]

        It will add index to the Blobs table and thus improve the performance when working with media stored in database. Such index already exists for both the ‘web’ and the ‘core’ databases, so you do not need to run the script on them.
      7. Unzip and run SitecoreCounters.exe script. 
      8. Delete Website/App_Config/Include/CheckIgnoreFlag.config if it exists.
