version 2.3.1 -> 3.x
I have a backup of my old vanilla message board, version 2.3.1 which has 1) sql script and 2) website archive. I want restore it and migrate to the new version.
What I did was I installed a new version of vanilla (3.x.) via CPanel on my hosting. Then I opened PHPAdmin and re-wrote the DB by executing the old sql backup script. When I opened the forum, I found all content has been restored, which is very good. But the problem is that avatars and some images are missing.
Is this the right way to do it? will I run into more issues with this approach?
