    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 2.1.3, 2.2
    • Fix Version/s: 2.1.4, 2.2.1
    • Component/s: Backup, Questions

      1. Restore the attached backup (backup-edited2.zip).
      2. Verify that the backup can be restored, even though there is data missing from the question definition.

      (Note there is still a notice. However this example data (which came from a real user) is total garbage, so I think we have to tolerate a notice when trying to restore it.)

      Hunt down the broken question, and delete or fix it on the 1.9 system before generating the backup.

      Description

      Try to restore the attached backup file into Moodle 2.1 or 2.2. It gives a fatal error.

      Trying to restore into 1.9 just gives a notice but allows the rest of the course to be restored. Moodle 2.1+ should be made similarly tolerant.
