I recently had to move a moodle site from one hosting service to another (never mind the reasons, I will talk about that in another post)
Anyway, the old site is no longer accessible, but I did get a tar file of the entire site.
Since the tar file was so large, and I didn't want to include all the old files from my moved site, I chose to upgrade to the newest moodle using the zip file from moodle downloads. I pointed the new install to the old SQL database, and everything worked fine. I was able to see my site, and it appeared to come across fine.
However, some things are not quite right.
First, all the user pics are missing.
Secondly, all the course theme graphics, such as system icons, etc., are missing.
So, since I have all the old data, I need to know what directories to restore to my new host. I can put them manually into the correct directories, or if I need to create directories, I can do that too.
But can someone tell me where these graphic reside, and all the folders I need to restore manually should go? That will be a lot quicker than trying to restor an entire site.
Oh, and one more thing I noticed...My backup files show up in the restore dialogs, but I get php errors when clicking on them. Apparently moodle is lost when it comes to knowing where certain files ought to be, or it can't find them because they aren't yet on my new server. So its all related, but I just need to know what folders to restore and/or any utilities I should run to "sync" up the new locations.
Thanks in advance.
