Upgrading Graffiti

Unless noted otherwise, you can upgrade to the newest version of Graffiti by using the following procedure.

  1. Make a local copy of the Web folder contained in the root folder of your current version of Graffiti. Do this to ensure that you can recover your existing data in case you encounter problems during the upgrade and so you can migrate your existing database after you complete the download.
  2. Create a folder on your computer or server to which you will download the new version of Graffiti. This folder will only be a temporary repository of these files. You will eventually copy some of these files to the folder that contains your existing Graffiti files.
  3. Download the new version of Graffiti from
  4. Unzip the contents of the downloaded software to the folder you created in Step 2. If you have not backed up your files as specified in Step 1, DO SO NOW.
  5. Copy the Web folder and its contents from the folder you created in Step 2 to the root folder of your existing version of Graffiti, overwriting the existing files.
  6. Upgrade the database if necessary (required for users of 1.1 or older upgrading to 1.3, or when running VistaDB)
  7. Make any necessary changes to the data provider and connection strings in web.config. Also change RequireWWW setting as needed.
  8. Enable the Generate Folders option under Control Panel>Site Options>Configuration if ruinning IIS6 or older.
  9. Regenerate your Web site if running a version of IIS6 or older.

Note: See Al Pascual's blog post on his upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3 for details on upgrading to the open source version
