Upgraded to BlogEngine.NET 2.8

I have just upgrade our Blog Server from BlogEngine.NET 2.7 to 2.8, all seems to have gone well, basically it is just file copies as there is no DB schema change, so…

  1. backup your blogs folder
  2. delete it’s contents
  3. copy in the the new release from the zip
  4. fix the SQL connection string
  5. copy around a few files as detailed in the release notes, basically any customisation you have done,

That that seems to be it, just a case now of swapping themes to get the new look, if you want it
