Hi guys, just upgraded from 8.1.4 to 9.02 and I have a question.  Where does the new version move the gallery files to?  I have about 11000 image files in my photo gallery, but none of them are in the /uploads/galleries directory anymore.  I'm assuming you have chosen a new place to store photos, as I would sure hate to have to upload a 3GB backup, then save all these pictures, then upgrade, then reupload all these pictures.  Please tell me the upgrade only moved them and did not delete them.

I wouldn't know about where they went but did your try checking your folder sizes and do you see one that has 3gb somewhere? That may be where to look for the files?

We haven't moved anything in v9, and the upgrader wouldn't have moved these files itself – something else must be going on, but I'm not sure what.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks, guys.  I don't know what happened, but the files were gone from the server.  Just another cautionary tale about backing up before making major changes LOL.

I just restored the previous version, renamed the galleries folder, and performed the upgrade over again.  Then changed the folder name back to galleries.  Everything is good now, just need to work on theming and cleanup.  Thanks.
