1.9 to 2.5 issue with ID numbers
« on: 23.08.2015 15:21:26 »
Following your instructions, I have a J2.5 installation with 1.9 version of your software.
I am moving to J3 so decided to first upgrade 1.9 to 2.5.
Followed the directions, uninstalled old, installed new without touching the database.
Now none of the download links work because the old download IDs appear to no longer be valid, and upon looking at the system it has given them all new download ids.
is this what is meant to happen, because if so then its a bit crap,

slight correction, the Ids are ok, its the categories that are not right.  95% of the downloads are uncategorised after installing the new version?

Hi,
it is correct that when you update to a jD 2.5 version, the Download IDs are new. You can prevent this when you updated from a jD 1.9.2.x to a jD 3.2 series. Here are the IDs for the Downloads the same as before. Please read the documentation about the best way to make the migration.

Please note, that the category IDs are always changed. This has to do with the new db structure in Joomla and the permissions handling.

Here must be something wrong. For the most users works the upgrade proper. When you will, i can try for you the update here. In this case i need a download link with the jD backup file from the version 1.9.1. You can send it me via PM.
