Summary0006534: move_db2disk does not use $g_absolute_path_default_upload_folder

I've use the $g_absolute_path_default_upload_folder value to set my site's default upload folder to something other than my Mantis install location. I have about 95 files that got stored in the database before I setup DISK based storage, and I would like to move them to the disk.

All newly uploaded attachments are being stored just fine, so I know the directories are setup correctly. When I use the move_db2disk page, it keeps trying to write the files to my Mantis instal's root, which is of course read only.

I couldn't find any mention of the global default upload folder in the move_db2disk code.

TagsNo tags attached.

I added the following to the get_prefix() function, just before the line that returns the dirname(FILE) value. It worked for me, although I had to follow up and manually correct the values in the database. The absolute path wasn't prepended to the diskfile values, but that was easy to identify and fix.

$t_default_upload_folder = config_get_global( 'absolute_path_default_upload_folder' );
if ( !empty($t_default_upload_folder) ) {
return $t_default_upload_folder;

I've attached a cleaner patch that checks $t_file_path == '' for the project file path and fetches the global if it is empty.
