upgrade from 1.6.1 to 1.8.4

Postby ccc123 » Thu Oct 15, 2009 2:46 pm

i installed 1.8.4 on another machine, then did db backup copy from existing 1.6.1.

on 1.8.4, did a new install from ...../testlink/install/index.php so mySQL get a new schema,

and did a backup restore of the older 1.6.1 database on the new machine. it's named as new schema as testlink161

and then launched the link: Migration from 1.6.2 to 1.7.x (my old one is 1.6.1).
and the converted schema is stored in testlink174. it take a while after it's done.

after it's done, i checked the two schema, testlink174 has 40 tables, rows 12000 and data length is 1.4M, the older schema testlink161 has 21 tables, rows 16000, data length 48M. Data length is much smaller.

wonder how to convert 1.6.1 to newer one?


my another question is: are those attachment stored in database? or just a link and the actual attachements are stored in the apache2? then if that's the case, the db backup will loss all the actuall attachement and i have to get a copy of the old www folder, correct?

Paths for the attachments are stored in the following path ......\testlink\upload_area\executions\
You can find the paths for all attachments by view the records of attachments table of the database.
