Moodle 1 into Moodle 2 course restore fails with error “unsupported subplugin” or “unknown resource successor” or “parameter (contextid) was missing

  1. I could not get the course to convert, until I deleted everything but the fora , and not even my rss blocks converted with urls – if this helps somebody, I describe the steps I took here:


  2. clip_image002
  3. upconclicking on more info: error/moodle/unsupported subplugin From MoodleDocs
  4. The cause of this is likely due to an unsupported subplugin not being available in the version of Moodle you are using. If this error appeared during the restore of a Moodle course check the plugins within the backed up course against what is available in the Moodle you are restoring the course to. The Moodle you are restoring the course to is likely to be missing a plugin that is present in the backed up course. There is a tracker for this error to be a bit more graceful during course restore for Moodle version 2.x.x http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-29288  <http://docs.moodle.org/23/en/error/moodle/unsupported_subplugin>
    • Do not include "Video Assignments" means not only video files, but also Kaltura streamed video.
    • If I remove pretty much anything which was useful and retry backup/restore with these settings
    • clip_image001


    1. I removed the video, however, there is a new error
    2. clip_image002

    Error remains:


  5. Now remove really all Saba Centra  and Kaltura references.

  7. Now we are removing everything except fora:

  8. Not much point anymore, but now we reach the next step: image

  9. RSSs blocks were transferred, but without feeds.

  10. In addition, you may see this error, when you get logged out and have to log in again after uploading the backup file: image
