upgrading 1.2.7d to 1.3.5 to 1.3.6 with Image Handler
I am wondering if I can get there from here.
I made a 1.3.5 fresh install working with an upgraded 1.2.7d DB.
I then installed a Imagehandler 2 (I have the old version on live site)
Set up the config and got everything working correct on this test site.
I then recently did a 1.3.6 upgrade of this 1.3.5 test site. Looks workable. IH is working, DB is OK when I use the upgraded 1.3.5 DB.
But if I go back and take the present "live" DB to bring things up to date, I loose all my images all together.
Am I correct to assume that even if you reinstall all IH2 files, and reinstall the IH2 sql in the IH2 admin area (did that) - that this upgrading process will not retain all the image referances that IH made in my test site. I was hoping to retain them but now think I need to either re-inter all my images or there is some admin setting that I somehow overlooked. And this all would need to be done while down for maint. I understand keeping a log of your config changes while testing, but this makes me think I should move site up and live "then" add mods like IH.
Is my understanding correct that the live site 1.2.7 DB upgrade will just erase the working 1.3.6 DB entries that IH2 or other Mods with a sql patches might make? Is it possible to install the live site date "into" the working 1.3.6 DB and then upgrade it again? Doing this latter instead of "dropping all the tables" and "importing" 1.2.7d DB?
Please forgive me if the answer is out there already, I just have not seen it.
