How can i save user

  • Hansjakob Strickler

    It's now the second time i lost during the upgrade all users :-(

    Does anybody knows in which file they are managed/stored so i can save this file local?

    It would be good to have a save and a restore function!

    Any help would be very welcome!

    Regards Koebi

    I can say definitively that you must not be following the upgrade instructions as this is not an issue with any other users.
    Aa to which tables (not a file) house the users, this depends on which version you are using. The last several versions (minor updates) split the users into, IIRC, three tables:  prefix_user, prefix_user_gedcom_setting, and prefix_user_setting

    Not sure why, when upgrading, you are trashing your SQL. You can not upgrade to a new prefix database and retain any of the old NEWS, MESSAGES, BLOCKS, FAVORITES, PLACELOCATION (GM) or USER settings as these are not contained within the GEDCOM and would not re-established when you import.  You MUST upgrade in place, either on a duplicate of the existing DB or make a backup and operate on the existing one.

    Hi Stephen

    Whow, that was a very quick and very competent information, thanks very much :-)

    Hopefully it will works next time better with your information.

    Thanks again for help, Koebi

    The upgrade instructions have been described many times.  The most recent example is in the Help topic where the subject begins with "Repost: …"

    Please read these instructions.  If you follow them exactly, you will NOT encounter the sort of problems you are having.
