Files disappeared on upgrade

We just upgraded from to

Before the upgrade, the public directory contained an empty file index.html and subdirectories site and journals/1 that contained images and our style file.

After the upgrade everything except index.html was gone.

We use postgres 9.6.15 and php 7.2.26.

I don’t have a theory.


Hi Brendan,

Did you perhaps start the upgrade with a source download and forget to copy the public/ directory over from your old installation? You’d need to migrate that over by hand, since it won’t happen automatically.


Hi Jason,

That’s embarrassing! I’m sure you are correct.

Thanks, Brendan.
