00605: pm1 -> pm2 lost attachment download capability - wants to upload
Summary: pm1 -> pm2 lost attachment download capability - wants to upload
Created: 2005-11-23 07:28
Status: Closed - fixed documentation
Description: I converted the pmwiki1 to pmwiki2 per the upgrade documentation and all went pretty well, but am seeing that my attachments don't actually download, they are now links to upload new attachments.
Here is the wikitext from the page which simply links to the upload page.
[[Attach:ContactList.pdf |Contact List]]
I see the resolution is to simply copy the upload directory from the wiki1 directory to the root of the wiki2 directory. I didn't see this in the upgrade documentation and would likely be worthwhile note. Granted i tried this before the convert, so if the convert copies the upload folder then this point may be moot.
I added a note about uploads to the upgrading document. Thanks. --Pm
