"Restore area" not working
I can't get "Restore area" to work. It gives me this no matter which area I try to restore. "XML error: no aliases object found!"
Backup is made from a "1.2.3-PRERELEASE-TESTING-VERSION built on Thu Mar 19 19:41:43 EDT 2009"
Onto a "1.2.3-RC1 built on Thu Apr 2 03:48:46 EDT 2009".
Any clue to why this is. As I'm writing this I'm upgrading the source of the backup. I'll get back soon.
Ok, both machines upgraded to "1.2.3-RC1 built on Tue Apr 7 09:49:19 EDT 2009". Can't restore just one area. for example alias. Should this be possible?
Did I post this in the wrong forum?

Let me start, with this, as people keep posting support questions to the 1.2.3 testing forum:
Did you try under 1.2/1.2.2? If not, don't assume it's something with 1.2.3
Ok, now that I've said that-
How did you go about this? It's not immediately obvious, but to restore a specific area of the config, you must first backup a specific area of the config. You cannot take a full backup of your config and restore a single area. Perhaps this could be fixed, or clarified on the backup/restore page, but AFAIK, this is the way it has always worked.
If you have followed this procedure, and it worked in previous versions, but not 1.2.3, then nevermind.
I just assumed that I could backup everything and then do a selective restore on the areas I wanted.
Tried backing up alias and then restore alias on another machine. Worked!
