The following are informal userid migration notes ONLY. As always bugzilla will have the real details!
Notes on SuMoMo tikiwiki to SuMoMo Kitsune KB userid migration
To create a Kitsune/Django user out of a Tiki user, you'll just need to INSERT...SELECT a few columns from the old users_users table into the new auth_user table.
users_users -> auth_user login username hash password email email
Not too important, but if you want to keep more data, you can also salvage the registration and last login dates:
FROM_UNIXTIME(lastLogin) -> last_login FROM_UNIXTIME(registrationDate) date_joined
For the symlink issue I mentioned: When you set up kitsune, none of the kitsune directory will actually be in the document root. You'll want to do an apache Alias to two places:
- kitsune/media --> /media/ (probably)
- kitsune/vendor/django/django/contrib/admin/media --> /admin-media/
Within that, you'll want to symlink kitsune/media/uploads to an NFS mount shared by the web servers. (kitsune/media/uploads doesn't exist in version control) The directory should be totally writable by the web server user, as all user-uploaded content will go in there.
