Missing Avatars
« on: March 02, 2009, 03:33:55 PM »
Just about to upgrade to 1.2.1 but... every time I've upgraded in the past, we've lost all our user avatars! Its a very laborious task to have to upload them all again.
Is there anything I can do this time to stop them disappearing on upgrade?

Don't delete folder 'public/files'. There is where avatars are stored. Just extract the new files to your opengoo directory without deleting anything first. Just in case, you can try moving the folder somewhere else out of your opengoo installation and then moving it back to 'public/files' after extracting version 1.2.1.

Soon we will use the selected storage system to store avatars (database or filesystem).
