Welcome to the DotNetNuke Upgrade Page.
The first step is to choose the language you wish to use for the Upgrade.
You are about to upgrade your website to a more recent version of the DotNetNuke application. Applying upgrades on a consistent basis is the best way to ensure that you are protecting the integrity of your investment and the security of your users and assets. Before proceeding with the automated upgrade process please ensure that:
- you have made plans to first attempt this process in a staging environment
- you have documented your current installation characteristics including doing research on the compatibility of any third party modules which you may be using
- you have created the necessary backups of your environment so that you will be able to restore your website in the event of an unexpected upgrade failure.
Just simply close your browsers, or better yet, grab a browser that you have not accessed for some time. Then try hitting your URL and loggin in with the new browser session. While I did not bother to work out what the cache issue was, I did find it was cache related to an open browser session that was trying to authenticate to a previous session.
Easy when you know how~!
