I have recently migrated our mantis bug tracker to a new machine and upgraded in the process. Everything seemed to go smoothly and our new system is up and running. The only problem is that any old uploads are "available" though contain no data. New uploads are fine! We can upload files and then access them with no problems. We use the database as the file store. The documents are still on the old system and are available and downloadable. Might I have not exported the database correctly??
I used the commands suggested in the manual.
mysqldump --opt -u<username> -p<password> <database name> > <backup file>
mysql --force -u<username> -p<password> <database name> < <backup file>
Everything else seemed to be backed up and restored correctly (projects, users, passwords, bug entries ...)
when I use the system utilities on the old machine to move attachments to disk I receive :
Found 0 attachments to be moved.
0 attachments processed, 0 failures
This does not seem correct as we have many attachments to bug entries (or am I confused as to what that utility does).
