Migration

Troubleshooting Your Migration

The following are issues reported while attempting to migrate content from Cascade to SiteFarm.

1. Error Message: An AJAX error occurred.

What happened: At the end of your selected migration process, the system generated an error indicating the possibility that one or more of your files were unable to be transferred because the process exceeded the timeout setting.

Migration Management Actions

Once you have set-up your preferred options for migration or actually performed your initial site migration from Cascade to SiteFarm, some additional action services will be available from the Overview of Migrations screen located at Manage > Configuration > SiteFarm Migrations > Cascade Migration tab. 

After completing Step 4 of the migration process (pre-migration, but batched) or after the migration process itself, the additional list of possible actions will assist you in managing your migrated content.

Next Steps to Configuring Your Site Home page

Be aware that the migration process may introduce a conflict so that your home page is no longer accessible. This isn't a problem; you have the option to create a new Basic Page content type, give it a name that designates it as your home page, and then use that in the Basic Site Configuration area to instruct the system to use it as your home page. Example: /home or /homepage or /newhome or /node1.
