  • [Forum] Database migration

    Hi there, I'm the new administrator of a vBulletin 4.2.1 forum. It's great but it's old ^^
    The previews admin (which I can't join) moved the attached documents out of the database.

    And I'm currently trying to move these documents back to the database (for a safer and easier backup for our next servers), but when I click on : "Move items from the file system to the database", it simply doesn't work =/

    I don't know how to resolve this issue. I know it's a bit light the way I describe my problem but I don't know where to look in order to solve this.

    Thank's for your help !

    Or maybe there is an other place to get help on this topic ?

      Is there some kind of error displayed? What exactly happens when you try?

      Do you have any idea what the file size of the combined attachments are? If you're trying to move too many into the database it's possible the system just can't handle it. Being in the file system is the best place for attachments and improves performance overall.
