When I'm trying to specify backup file with no path like:
FUDforum_28_09_2002-12:56.fud.gz, I get an error, that file doen't exist. If I specify the path, like:

/opt/apache/htdocs/forum/tmp/FUDforum_28_09_2002-12:56.fud.gz

I get the following:


Commencing restore of data files
ERROR: Directory '/opt/apache/htdocs/forum//opt/apache/htdocs/FUDforum2/messages' does not exist and the import script was unable to create it

Please help.

It seems a wrong path, the real root directory is
/opt/apache/htdocs/forum, that is a link to /opt/apache/htdocs/FUDforum2,
but it tries to get another path like:
/opt/apache/htdocs/forum//opt/apache/htdocs/FUDforum2/messages/private

All the permissions are all right. When I run successfull backup and at once trying to import it, I get the above errors. Actually I got the errors for all the files, but didn't specify them in the report.

Which version of FUDforum are you running, this is something that was an issue in older versions. Also, was the datadump made from the same forum version or different one, in case of the later, which version?

The version is the latest stable one: FUDforum 2.3.1
I was using the same FUDforum version for backup and import.

So where was the problem in the backup or import. Can I import the datadump from current 2.3.1 version to the new one?

Well, there is a slight problem with that. The datadump is bad because of a bug in the dump script not the importer.
You can however fix the problem fairly easily.

decompress '/opt/apache/htdocs/forum/tmp/FUDforum_28_09_2002-12:56.fud.gz' using gzip utility.

then run the following script:

perl -p -i -e 's!/opt/apache/htdocs/forum/!!g' FUDforum_28_09_2002-12:56.fud

This will modify the file and remove all /opt/apache/htdocs/forum/.

The bug doesn't seem to be fixed. In the new version I lost bodies for all the messages. However, I'm still able to see the subject.

I tried to run datadump - import with the new version and still got the following:

Did you use an old datadump? If so that obviously you'd have this problem cause as I've explained before the bug was in the DUMP script not the IMPORT script.

Ok, now I did everything more carefull, but the perl script didn't work for me, so I did the following:

sed 's/\/opt\/apache\/htdocs\/FUDforum2//g' dumpdata_file > dumpdata_new

Then I imported the new file using the web interface and all the database and messages were all right.

The only problem was, that all the "gif" files were broken (I don't know why) and I had to restore them manually. Now everything seems to be all right.

Thanks.

Okie, the gif files are binary files, it is possible that the sed or my perl script had an adverse affect on them. Either way the problem which caused the original bug has been solved in the CVS and the fix will be avaliable in the 2.3.2 release due sometime this week.
