      If we're restoring a course backed up with Moodle 2.2 and the older version of UploadPDF, into Moodle 2.4 with the newer versions of Upload PDF (Submission and Feedback), should we be receiving errors? From the looks of the errors a colleague has passed on, the restored code is looking for the 2.2 UploadPDF version which doesn't exist in 2.4.

      From a conversation about restoring backups:

      "I tried on Friday and although the restore was successful the assignments didn't appear on 2.4. However, I've just realised that the 2.2 assignment type module is switched off so I have enabled it and lots of uploadpdf errors appeared (I can't see them now though to copy them!)

      I can also see the assignments in the test course but if you click on one you get the following error.

      Warning: require(/srv/moodle24/mod/assignment/type/uploadpdf/assignment.class.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /srv/moodle24/mod/assignment/view.php on line 43
      Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/srv/moodle24/mod/assignment/type/uploadpdf/assignment.class.php' (include_path='/srv/moodle24/lib/zend:/srv/moodle24/lib/pear:.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /srv/moodle24/mod/assignment/view.php on line 43

      ...and restoring a full course with uploadpdf assignments bought up the following error:

      Incorrect assignment type: uploadpdf
