migrate images from file manager with description to new instance

Permalink
hello

I have an 5 year old concrete5 site with a lot of files and just created an new installation with the current concrete5 version.

Now I have to migrate a lot of pictures with correct description to this new site. I thin this will take hours if I have to upload every single image again and then edit the description.

So I am searching for a way to do this with a script or something else...c

Maybe someone can help?

# mass file / picture upload with description
old version: 5.7.5.13
new version 8.2.1


Old versoon

Hello,
There's a migration tool for that. Read this article
https://documentation.concrete5.org/tutorials/upgrade-56-57...

Make sure to also read the article and watch the video referenced in the first comment.

I have tried this now, but package is not working, or the documentations is wrong:

I have C5 v 5.7.5.13
Documentation:
"The legacy version exports content from a concrete5 5.6 site, and the 5.7 migration tool handles export from and import to a 5.7 site."

So I download NOT the legacy version. But hen I try to install (Migration Tool v.0.9.0):
"This package requires concrete5 version 8.3.1 or greater."

And when I try to install the legacy version I get this:

"""Awaiting Installation
Unknown Package v.0.0
Broken package (handle migration_tool).

Can't install"""

Yes, it's a bit hidden, to be honest.

So on v8 website, you will use the NOT legacy one which is only for 8.3.1 and up, the same one you already downloaded from here:https://github.com/concrete5/addon_migration_tool...

And for your 5.7 website you need to grab version 0.5.4 of the tool from the release tab on the same page as the other one. The download link ishttps://github.com/concrete5/addon_migration_tool/archive/0.5.4.zip...
