Summary0023632: I am upgrading from older version of mantis to newer version i.e 2.8.0, how can i migrate the my older defects to new version

I am upgrading mantis (very old version) on my organisation server system to new version (2.8.0) which is Bitnami Mantis, but i have to migrate the older defects also.
I have around 3000 defects stored in mysql, but I dont know how I can migrate my older defects data directly to newer version. Please help.

Steps To Reproduce

Upgrading to newer version 2.8.0 from a very older version.

Additional Information

My old mantis server is running using Wamp server and mysql is accessed by PhpMyAdmin. Now I am using Bitnami Mantis and I am not able to migrate older defects to new Mantis.

Depending on the version you are using, it should work the way it's described in manual


This is not a bug or feature request for MantisBT (you are asking for help on how to configure the system). I am therefore resolving this issue as "no change required".

Please use the forums to get support on customizing and using MantisBT (refer to for links and further details).
