    Default Migrating a contao 3.2.X site

    Are there any changes to the way Contao 3.3.X handles data when backing up an importing through phpmyadmin or other SQL managers.

    We usually develop locally and then export the database, upload all the files to a live server and then import the database into the new site and it works.

    The tl_files seems to be different. Does this use binary and need any field type changes or anything.

    Does anyone have a step by step guide if there is a new process?

    Thanks

    From Contao 2.x to Contao 3.x you have to use /files instead of /tl_files
    1. Use the new .htaccess.default
    2. BE-Settings $GLOBALS['TL_CONFIG']['bypassCache'] = true; (/system/config/localconfig.php)
    3. Get contao-db-update.php https://gist.github.com/leofeyer/3304014
    4. Run CONTAO_ROOT/contao-db-update.php after you put your DB connection data in there
    5. BE-Settings $GLOBALS['TL_CONFIG']['uploadPath'] = 'files'; (/system/config/localconfig.php)
    6. Move your files form /tl_files to /files
    7. Delete /tl_files
    8. Delete contao-db-update.php

    You may hire me to do the job.

    Do exactly the steps from 1 to 8. Config settings can be done in /system/config/localconfig.php.

    needed? Yes, as I told you before Contao 2 => 3 means /tl_files/ => /files/

    It is not necessarily needed (see https://contao.org/en/news/contao-3_0_0.html), but it might be a good idea to do that anyway.
