Docman import /export

I am moving from Joomla 1.5 to 3.3. and Docman 1.5.2 to 2.0

1. I have exported the data and imported and all the categories are there but no actual files where copied across. I have 6400 docs, please tell me I dont have to reenter all this data?

2. I cant seem to display the Frontend of Docman- I just see a list of documents. See
The Categories are Countries and the Documents are Publications and the Files are PDFs.

Hi Simon, after you migrated your data you still need to manually move your files as explained in point of the migration FAQ, see : 9-how-to-migrate-from-docman-1x-to-docman-20

DOCman migrator only migrates your DOCman data, it does not recreate your menu items. To display your documents on the frontend you need to create a menu item using the Joomla menu manager and link it to DOCman, best to choose the Hierachical Document List or Table layout.

Does that help you ?
