Steps to reproduce:

I am upgrading Bugzilla.
on this doc page:
https://bugzilla.readthedocs.org/en/5.0/installing/backups.html#backups

It mentions that you may need some data files.
I needed localconfig and data/params now data/params.json

But it does not mention the data/attachments directory, if you are using attachments on the file system. 


Actual results:

I forgot about attachments.  Found them of course.


Expected results:

I mentioned this in reproduce steps:
Mainly:
It mentions that you may need some data files.
I needed localconfig and data/params now data/params.json

But it does not mention the data/attachments directory, if you are using attachments on the file system.

You need the whole data/ directory when upgrading, not only a few files. This page is about backups, not upgrades. And for backups, you really want to save the whole bugzilla/ directory.

For upgrades, you must follow:

https://bugzilla.readthedocs.org/en/5.0/installing/upgrading-with-a-tarball.html#copy-across-data-and-modules

which correctly specifies to copy the whole data/ directory.

Thanks for the review.

I agree that below mentions the data/ directory. https://bugzilla.readthedocs.org/en/5.0/installing/upgrading-with-a-tarball.html#copy-across-data-and-modules
