Post by: Allan on December 27, 2020, 04:53:56 am
Has anyone tried converter a 2.1 to EA?

I don't have any after 2.0.x migration to EA.

Yes, but it's been a looong time. If memory serves, a few database table/row names had to be altered in the script before it would complete.

The process was something like this: run the script to failure. The script should indicate the errant database non-conformity. Either change the table/row name in the script, or in the database being imported. Run again. 

It's a good practice to keep unaltered backups in at least two separate locations. Just in case!

The worst that happens is you wind up restoring the 2.1 install. After all, you have the database and all files in backup, right? ;D

 Of course you do! Much like the backup itself, it never hurts including redundancy for other readers too. Good luck, let us know how it goes for you.

Problem there are still people thinking "I don't need a backup, nothing can go wrong."  ;)
