Ok I have moodle moodledata and the database from my 1.9.10 install
moodle data contains every file ever uploaded for a course in folders with names like 1 and 132 ect.
Moodle2.6.1 stores course files a little differently with names like fjdshgofghdfhsdhgjfbhdhsj or similar.
So my courses have moved up with moodle but all the course files have gone probably into legacy files.
so at first glance it looks like backing up the course files from my old moodle version downloading them and restoring them on my test server in appropriate places on my courses. a long and boring job.
is there a relationship between the folder number and the course the files belonging to the course. It does look like the files are clustered by course in moodledata.
maybe using find or locate with the name of a needed file might give me the location of a courses files in moodle data or perhaps there is a line in one of the database files which will let me look up the folder
any suggestions or is it just suck it up and get on with it
