When setting up a wiki, using the FileSystemProvider provider, and subsequently switching to the VersioningFileProvider, no page history is maintained (neither in "Page Info", nor in the jspwiki.fileSystemProvider.pageDir, where no OLD/PageName is created) when pages are subsequently modified.

Migration is supposed to be possible, ref. http://jspwiki.org/wiki/FAQAdministration

Q: Our admin started wiki with FileSystemProvider, which doesn't seem to do versioning or latch the username. I understand VersioningFileProvider is the best one to use for versioning. We have already put a bunch of pages on, and obviously we don't want to retype them in. Is there a way to retrofit versioning to pages already generated by FileSystemProvider?

A: Yes. Just switch the provider into VersioningFileProvider, and it will automatically use any pages already put there by the FileSystemProvider. No need for any retrofitting.

Although the old pages are being shown, no versioning is ever maintained on them.


Rather strange, it is supposed to be possible. Could this be a permission issue?

I have tried a similar thing on a brand new installation, and cannot reproduce the problem. Although no "/OLD/" directory was ever created by the VersioningFileProvider.

If I get the time to look into the original problem, I will try to find more evidence, otherwise treat this issue as non-reproducable.

Mind you, I have heard about the exact same problem from a collegue of mine, so I think there may be an issue somewhere.

Yup, I'm closing this. Please reopen if you see it happening again.
