Network error uploading file for migration to V4

Hi,

I'm trying to start migration of our V3 backend to V4 and hit a speed bump.

When I try to upload the file (v1-files-2017_08_16_07_37_41.zip in my case) of 2.61GB, I get a "Network error" after a while. I tried several times.

Kind regards,

Jeroen

I still cannot find a way to upload the file. I suspect it is due to its size.

Hi Jeroen

Sorry for the delay.

Could you unzip this archive and see what exactly is there.

How I remember you already had an issue with migration and git repository.

if you don't need GIT anymore you can just remove the git directory from the archive and try again to export the archive

Let us know if it helped you.

The GIT issue was a separate one and I removed GIT support since (and the git directory was removed with it).

This is all real data. I can imagine that I can upload the files inside archive instead of the zip file? Or does the migration involve processing of the uploaded zip file in some way?

yes, you can modify archive a little, but I don't not recommend you change "export" directory inside the archive.

If there are a lot of images/video/audio files you can remove them from archive and then upload these files manually in the Files Service screen via d&d

I will remove the binary data and try it that way. Thanks for the support!
