Migrating database to fresh svn install

posts: 84319 Canada

I'm trying to move my 12.1 database to installs of 12.5 svn, 14.x svn and trunk

During the install process, it does not recognize the database and insists on creating a new install, overwriting the dump I have already placed there.

I know the functionality is not completely broken because when I allow it to install with a new database and then attempt a reinstall, it does recognize the freshly installed database and asked me if I want to upgrade.

I have tried manually changing the database config file to specify the 12.1 database structure to no advantage.

I've looked through documentation about upgrading and upgrading manually, and was not able to find any clues that might help.

If someone could give me a clue as to what I might be missing, I'd be happy to update the documentation and continue with tiki development.
