How do I upgrade my website?
Umbraco 7 and newer versions of Umbraco use different versions of the Microsoft .NET framework. This means that there are some fundamental changes that mean you can't do a simple upgrade to a newer version.
You can upgrade your database (i.e. your content, users etc.), but you may run into problems with your website's code or your database.
The best way to upgrade your Umbraco 7 website is to migrate your content to a new Umbraco website. This will allow you to keep your content and start fresh with a new website that is based on the latest version of Umbraco.
