I have a small problem with building a site from backup.
I was on a server from hostgator but than moved to namecheap.com (silly name but still good), Before deleting the site from the old server I backed up everything, aka
- used navicat and did complete backup of database ,
- went to admin panel of cms and created a backup file.
So I am on my new hosting space and trying to do the rebuild,
- I upload a new cms
- I upload the restore file into that cms
- on completing the details and adding the restore, I then notice ok I am in the cms but none of my cms is like it was before aka it no longer has input forms that I had created previously.
I also see at the top of the cms page i see I have an alert.
Upgrading MySQL table '_accesslist' to utf8mb4
Upgrading MySQL table '_email_templates' to utf8mb4
Upgrading MySQL table 'accounts' to utf8mb4
Upgrading MySQL table 'uploads' to utf8mb4
all in all my database is setup, but the cms itself is missing the previouslly created forms.
any idea as to where i went wrong
