Unable to install with Umbraco 7.7.8 #2118
Installation of Merchello 2.6.0 fails (using local install via zip) on umbraco 7.7.8.
I get a completely different error when trying to install Merchello (Merchello 7.6.0 from downloaded package zip).
The error I get is:
The really weird thing here is that the package is successfully extracted and the license agreement shown, but as soon as installation is confirmed the entire f8a85616-3226-41f4-a1cd-bc3d2f713599 directory (or whichever has been generated on that attempt) is deleted - you can watch the files disappear in windows explorer! So the error that follows is quite correct - the manifest file is gone...
Having the same issue. This is my log, removing the package folder before clicking the install button didn't work for me
I think i know what the problem is with this as i just had it.
I installed merchello and then the umbraco back end wouldnt work. Looking at the error in the code it was related to this migration
It is trying to convert a field to NTEXT which doesnt exist in SQL Server. The field was previously LONGTEXT which is an equivalent.
To fix it it i changed the following in the database
Field: detachedContentValues to be a VARCHAR(1000)
The migration had a check for the field size being over 500 and if so thinks the migration has already happened and therefore continues. This now makes the umbraco backend load
Can someone who knows the code better comment on the impact of this elsewhere in the code and also how the product will behave?
