Installation Notes

  • In some cases in upgrade scenarios, settings in the centroSettings.config files may get overwritten. It's always good practice to save these before you start the upgrade process for the CentroWeb app, Pipeline Host service, and Pipeline Manager service. 
    After upgrading, check if these settings need to be reset and/or copied over from saved config files.
  • For multiple site deployments after upgrading, you'll need to set the "Cookie" domain values in the web.config file found in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\Centro and in appSettings.config foudn in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\Centro\Configuration.
