Installation Performance

You are not authorized to post a reply.

New Around Here

    We have upgraded DNN version from 5.6.8 to 6.2.8


    We have 20 modules which are installed during portal creation. A module used to take around 5 seconds to install in version 5.6.8, But the same modules now take around 40 seconds which is a lot. We started the upgrade from 4.8.3 initially and did not face any performance issues till this version.


    Could it be old ".dnn" manifests, old xml formats, release notes and license files missing from modules? etc.


    please share any info regarding this issue. Thanks.

      DNN 6 had a number of new features, not all accelerating DNN platform.
      You should continue upgrading to DNN 9.9.1, where numerous performance improvements are incorporated.

          Add to that security improvements.

          You should be able to get to DNN 8.0.4 without too much trouble. There will be things that you need to adjust. Getting to 9.3.2 and beyond will entail some more work, but it's doable.

          Be sure to read the Suggest Upgrade Path at dnndocs.com, and also the release notes.
