Transition from 1.2 to 2.4 -- Lost Database

Hi -

We are attempting to upgrade from OS ver 1.2 to 2.4. We followed through on all of the instructions but ran into a problem that several plugins were not acting as expected when we upgraded. In trying to fix them we deleted our database and had to revert back to our 1.2 install.

What do you recommend for upgrading for such a large jump? Should we go from 1.2 to something inbetween 2.4 first?

Thank you,
Marge d'Wylde

Usually its best to do an upgrade "all at once" rather than in little steps, and it should be possible to go in one step from 1.2 to 2.4.

It might help to have some specifics about the plugin problems, though, to give better advice. While Omeka itself might upgrade fine, 1.2 was a long time ago and some plugins have changed substantially since then (or might have some problem in their specific upgrade process).
