Mihir Patel asked on September 10, 2019 09:08

i have tried to upgrade kentico9 project to kentico12 but facing lot of error so i manage everything my self instead of using upgrade tool.

Now i need to export only all pagetypes of kentico9 project and import into kentico12 project.

before proceeding with import export i want to make sure since kentico12 is total different version, would import export process break anything or what is the preferable method to accomplish this task.

Best practice is, you need to upgrade your Kentico 9 version into Kentico 12 version and export Page Types from source to Target Kentico 12 version.

Go through the Kentico documentation for upgrade 9 to 10, 10-11 and 11-12

Workaround is ,

Option 1: export Page Types from Kentico 9 Project and Import into Kentico 12 project. This may work with some warnings while importing.

In case this gives an error go for option 2.

Option 2:

  1. Export Page Type from Kentico 9 Project
  2. Unzip the export file and change the version in all XML files from 9.0 to 12.0 the version number in the first line of each XML file.
  3. Zip this back updated folder
  4. Import this updated zip into Kentico 12 Project.

One of these options may possibly work for you.

  1. I suggest you follow Multi-version Upgrades: Alternate Approach. We've done this way from 9 to 12.

  2. The system allows you to import packages from older versions to newer ones, but the support only extends back to the previous major version. For example, only packages from Kentico 10 or newer can be imported to Kentico 11.Read documentation here
