Installing FS 3.0 on top of 2.0

May 12, 2009 at 5:28 PM


I have installed Faceted search 2.0 on my production environment and would like to install 3.0 on top of it.  I was wondering if I need to uninstall 2.0 first or I can just run the 3.0 installation on top of what I already have.  Has anybody had any issues when doing this?

Thank you very much,

You will have to uninstall 2.0 first and delete FS 2.0 web parts from WP site collection galleries where you've installed them to. Then do a clean install 3.0.

Thank you very much!!

To uninstall 2.0 I assume I just have to retract the solution and manually delete the webparts? Do I have to manually edit the web.config files or anything else?

Thx :-)

If you still have 2.0 installer, just run it with REMOVE selection. It will take care of the solution and web.config. Then make sure that WPs are cleaned from the gallery.
