I had to move an umbraco site from one subdomain to another. I did this by deleting the old "Site" in IIS and creating a new one bound to the new (sub)domain. The directory containing my umbraco deployment was also moved.
Now I get an error "The view found at '~/Views/
I have tried republishing the content within the backoffice. I tried redeploying the site from Visual Studio.
Does anybody know what the issue might be?
Where is your Views folder? Is it still in the root directory of your project?
And is it a specific View that is not rendering OR is it all of them?
Views folder (and all file structure) is exactly the same, only the containing/root directory is renamed. None of the views/macros/etc were rendering...
However, I just restored my old App_Data directory from a backup, and redeployed umbraco, and now my site loads. So now the site loads, but...
Now I am locked out of the backend. None of the "user" logins for the backoffice are working!
I have tried redeploying again and nothing seems to work. Going to "myDomain.com/umbraco" immediately acts as though I have failed a login, appending a bunch of extra stuff onto the query string. Using any combination of username/email/passwords yields a failed login.
I am closing this topic and opening a new one since my original problem has been resolved (albeit in a useless way).
I wouldn't say this is 100% fixed as of yet though.
Restoring an old version of your "App_Data" folder may have other knock on effects.
Such as my getting locked out of backoffice, or...?
Yes. I believe it must be related somehow.
How old was the backup? And was it the App_Data folder that was in the other domain/server?
The backup was recent, nothing had been changed. I copied the (umbraco site) files over, removed the old IIS Site, added the new Site (with the new domain), and the issues began.
Are you sure everything copying across correctly?
Your not missing any files/folders?
A folder comparison tool such WinMerge may help in this instance.
Craig, thanks for continuing to delve into this. Diffing the folders didn't reveal any missing files or concerning differences in web.configs. But I must have made a mistake somewhere, or something went wrong, corrupted file, etc...
Today I am going to rebuild my project and attempt another domain migration + directory move just to see what transpires. If I have further issues I will continue to post, otherwise (if all goes well) I will chalk this up to some error on my part.
is working on a reply...
