TOPIC: Docman URL problems after migration

Docman URL problems after migration 12 years, 3 months ago #28371

I am moving a 1.5 site over to a fresh 2.5 install. I have my content moved over and JoomSEF is correctly creating the URLs to match the old site. The problem I am having is with the Docman component. I have installed the docman extension in JoomSEF but it is doing some strange things. I finally fixed a loopback problem I was having by deleting all the old docman menus that were copied over from the old site. The thing is that now I need to reset things so the new URLS will point to the same documents as the old ones.

Here is an example. If you go to the root of my docman install on the new site you get this URL:

but if you go to the old site you get:

In fact, now that I have done some more digging I see that on the new site clicking on a specific docman category is taking me to a completely incorrect docman category. If I ask for the folk music category it instead takes me to a listing of the scale category... I have no clue what is going on here.

I was hoping I would just need to change a setting in the docman joomsef extension but the extension controls are totally different between the old version on my 1.5 site and the new one.

Is there an easy fix to this problem? Did I mess up by deleting the old non-working docman menu items? If I didn't have 5+ years of inbound links built up on some of these files I wouldn't be so worried about it.

My sincere thanks for any insight into this.

I'm sorry, but we don't currently offer DocMan extension for JoomSEF 4 compatible with Joomla 2.5, as its developers didn't provide us with a copy of DocMan component for testing and there hasn't been any request for it so far.

If you are interested, we could implement a Joomla 2.5 extension directly on your server as a paid service - in that case, please purchase 2 hours of our support time at:

Or you could try our own document management component: We offer a JoomSEF 4 compatible extension for JoomDOC for free.
