Importing old entries from pivot 1.4

Postby vengoroso » Thu Sep 04, 2008 7:05 pm

Hi there,

I tried a new fresh install of PivotX beta 11, importing the old flat-files database from pivot 1.4.

Followed the usual procedure (clean-up database, convert entries to UTF, copy the files, copy the config files, then loging in... as stated in the instructions for importing) and at the beginning my old entries did not show up in PivtoX at all.

Tried rebuilding the index, and the entries did show up, but most of them didn't have any category associated to them. Only the ones in the categories "default" and "linkdump" were still correctly categorified.

I dont know if this is a bug or if I did something wrong this time, but since i already followed the same procedure with earlier betas and never found this issue before, I thought I might just ask...

Cheers

Hi, We haven't made significant changes to the import script lately, I believe..

Is it much trouble for you to wipe your DB in PivotX, and try again? If it fails again, i'd be interested to get a copy of your old DB, to investigate what goes wrong.

I have fixed this issue long time ago (by creating an import script also for the flat file database).

However, I think Bob has forgotten to update http://docs.pivotx.net/d/4-1-upgrading.php ...

Sure, blame me! ;-)

Well, it's true, I'll update the page in the docs.. See here, for the instructions: viewtopic.php?f=2&p=1296#p1296
