I used YouTrack on my home server to organize my tasks. I liked it very much, so I decided to move the database to my company's server to replace our old issue tracking system. I created a backup and restored it on the company's server as described here: https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/YTD6/Restoring+Database+from+a+Backup
However, when I started YouTrack, there was no sign of my project and my issues. Youtrack started as if it was a clean installation and told me I needed to create a project and start creating issues.
After many hours of frustration I have still not managed to run the database on my company's server.
Problem is, with all the experimenting, I screwed up my installation or database on my home server. I don't know what I did, but at some point I started getting the following message:
You have no permissions to view this page
Try to relogin, go to issues page (logged in as 'root'), or contact your system administrator.
When I go to issues page, there are no issues there. The user accounts are there, but all the issues are gone.
Now I'll be happy if I just find a way to restore the situation as it was this morning. I have the backups and I have the content of the data directory (C:\ProgramData\JetBrains\YouTrack\data).
I also tried a clean installation of YouTrack on a virtual machine and I copied on it the content of "C:\ProgramData\JetBrains\YouTrack\data".
Same thing: user accounts are shown but the issues are not. Also, when I go to the "Projects" page, there is a checkbox "Show archived projects". When I click on it, the name of the project is shown and it is even shown that this project has 116 issues.
But I can't "activate" them.
Can somebody help me? I don't have experience administering YouTrack and I am maybe missing something obvious.
