Migrating from an earlier version

Backup

It's a good idea to make a complete backup of the contents of the web site folder before beginning the migration process, just in case you want to revert to the previous version.

Web.config

Custom "appsettings" in web.config are no longer supported. Previously defined settings in web.config need to be moved to options.json

Application pool

The web application no longer supports using a shared application pool. If you previously hosted with a shared pool, create a new dedicated application pool.

Migrating existing data and settings

It's recommended to migrate to a new application folder for this release. Once you create the new folder, make sure to set up the permissions as discussed in Setting up Stonefield Query in IIS. The App_Data, Project_Data, and Licenses folders contain all the files that should be migrated to the new release. If you've customized the logger.config file, you should also migrate the Logs folder.

After this, continue publishing to the new application folder as discussed in the Publishing Stonefield Query help topic.

Plugins

If you have existing plugins, they must be recompiled for .NET Standard 2.0. If you aren't sure how to do this, you can consider using the new Automatic Compilation feature.
