Restore Images after delete
Is there a way to restore 1000 deleted images after I upgraded?
I did and uploaded the 1000 images again, but after I uploaded them they don't appear in their places in the website, probably because they are uploaded in a different folder.
Is there a way to restore them so they will be in their places again?
I have a backup of the website and the database before I upgraded.
Could this be done?
There is currently work being done on image-related stuff in the current development branch of c5:
It's *possible* that these changes, when released, would allow a 5.7-to-8 upgrade to work without the need for you to delete the files. You could decide to wait and see (ie, not work on your current 8 installation), or even participate in testing the develop branch (when they sort out the upgrade aspects).
In either case, I'd recommend keeping those backups!
But all currently-released versions of c5 8 can mishandle image thumnailing/resizing in some circumstances. I don't know whether this affects the upgrade process but it's possible.
It would be helpful if you could identify what types of images cause upgrade problems. Possibilities are certain file types (PNG, SVG), large file sizes, or large megapixel sizes. I know that's a lot of work and probably not worthwhile.
