Just updated from 2.10.2 to 11.5.0 and it shows no photos in DB

Yep, all my photos are somewhere in the Either land after my upgrade. I was far behind on updates so decided it was past time to do it.  I did the manual update/upgrade that kinda worked but had a lot of 500 errors on files during the FTP portion! Today I find that my host provides a auto install for the product so I configured that and ran it with no errors but also no photos!

I put the upgrade into a new dir on my host /local_host/piwigo so it didn't mess up the old one! I have gone into PHPADMIN and can see there are now 5 MYSQL databases and I found the one with all my photos in it! 

Problem is I don't know how to show the new install where my old DB is and I don't know where in the DB to find the dang password for it!

Any ideas??

If you look under piwigo/local/config, the database.inc.php file should have the DB name, username, and password in it. So you could update that file in the new install to point to the old DB and see if that works. Keep in mind your photos are not actually in the database, they're on the file system under piwigo/galleries (for FTP/local sync) or piwigo/uploads.

Be aware though, as you didn't run the upgrade on it, that the old DB will not be updated to the structures the current Piwigo version might expect. You may want to load upgrade.php once in your browser.
