I've been putting this off but eventually I'll have to bite the bullet. My Typo is old. So old I'm not sure how old. So old I'm not even sure how to find out what version I have. I notice some things like test/ are timestamped Oct 5. I do remember I was updating it from svn -- I also remember I had migration issues every single time I migrated, and I had no custom code or anything. If you were me, where would you start? Besides backing up the database, that is. Thanks, Hal

I would start by backing up the database, pulling down latest trunk, and seeing if you can migrate up to it. Some time ago a lot of work was done on the migrations to try and make it as robust as possible, so it should be a lot better now. If that fails, come back and ask again.

The BareMigration patch (now in trunk with many improvements thanks to Piers) should fix any migration issues you saw. So, back up your DB and prove me wrong! I don't keep very current on this list -- email me directly if you notice a migration that's broken. - Scott
