I have a backup course created from a moodle 1.7.1 version. When I try to import this course into a moodle 1.8.3+ version, it logs me out right after having analyzed the backup.
Below is a step by step procedure of what I have done to restore the course. Perhaps I did something wrong here, although I highly doubt so.
Step by step
I create a new course category and a new course. In that new course, I select the "Restore" option. I select the zip file created by the backup and it continues to the next screen. It asks me to continue and I click on yes.
On the next page, it lists the following:
- Creating temporary structures
- Deleting old data
- Copying zip file
- Unzipping backup
- Checking for BlackBoard export
- Checking backup
- Reading info from backup
I have tried restoring it to a new course and an existing course, both giving the same result of loging me out. I leave the remaining information on default, including everything from the backup.
As soon as I hit continue on this page, it redirects me to the login page and I'm logged out. When I log in again with the same account, it says "No files have been selected to restore".From this point on, nothing has been restored and I'm clueless as to what I should do to fix this.
Thanks in advance for any help !
