I lost my server and created a new one. However, most of the phones had uploaded the collected data. Am desperately looking for a way of uploading the old form data to the new deployment. Unfortunately, all the form data on the phones was already uploaded to the lost server. Any advice?
1. What is the issue? Please be detailed.
2. What steps can we take to reproduce this issue?
3. What have you tried to fix the issue?
4. Upload any forms or screenshots you can share publicly below.
All I see when i look into the ODK directory is the actual forms but I cant seem to see the collected data (i.e form submissions). Where can I find these submissions and how can I get them uploaded to the new server. My point of interest is the form submissions not the actual forms.
The instances form is not empty. I think I need more guidance on how to push from instances folder to the server. When i did some bit or reading, i couldn't find a concrete tutorial on how to push such instances to the server. I expected Briefcase to have a way I can specify the source folder on my local machine (instances directory for this particular matter), but the closest to this was in the settings tab of briefcase. On self exploration, i did specify the instances directory under the settings tab on Briefcase but it did not do much as it only created a new directory called 'ODK Briefcase Storage'. Kindly guide me on how best I can pick the files from the instances directory and have them uploaded to the server. thanks.
This is a special case you are trying to do, and you may not be able to find a 100% exact steps tutorial anywhere. You would have to learn this from multiple tutorials and apply it yourself. Or if it is too complicated, you would have to seek expert help from some experienced personnel or ODK support team.
