Summary0024715: When upgrade from 1.2 to 2.16, mantis_config_table's php serialized string cannot be decoded as json

2.16 expects field in mantis_config_table to be json encoded. However, older version used php serialize to save the config in table. Therefore, after upgrade and imported sql file from older version (1.2, I tried, don't know other versions) cannot display My View and View Issues pages. It will display an "INTERNAL APPLICATION ERROR".

Steps To Reproduce

Install 1.2, configure some customize configure view column orders, and save them to the database. Now check the database and you can see the text is something like:
a:12:{i:0;s:4:"edit";i:1;s:8:"priority";i:2;s:2:"id";i:3;s:11:"category_id";i:4;s:6:"status";i:5;s:20:"custom_project_stage";i:6;s:15:"custom_customer";i:7;s:14:"custom_country";i:8;s:12:"last_updated";i:9;s:24:" id";i:10;s:28:"custom_salesforce deal value";i:11;s:7:"summary";}

now upgrade to 2.16 and import the database. You will see INTERNAL ERROR on both view pages.

Additional Information

filter table handles this nicely with a v8 and v9 header in the string to indicating it is a serialized or json encoded string. The fix should do the same for config table.

TagsNo tags attached.

now upgrade to 2.16 and import the database

Does it mean you run admin/install.php?
If so, the following step of the installer should have converted from PHP serialize format to JSON
