Backup / restore webwallet issue
« on: November 16, 2015, 03:57:14 am »
I backed up my webwallet from chrome (bitshares,org), and tried to restore it in firefox webwallet (bitshares.openledger.info)
It recognized the file, it says Ready to Restore, and I clicked the the RESTORE button and nothing happen.
Does the backup is different from each site?

and also, why in bitshares.org, the link for webwallet is the openledger.info instead of bitshares.org/webwallet?

don't RESTORE .. use the IMPORT KEYS tool instead

migration guide: docs.bitshares.eu/migration
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

Not migrating from v1 to v2
I already migrated to v2 using webwallet bitshares.org/wallet
I used the webwallet backup from bitshares.org/wallet and gave me .bin file
then I use different browser to open the bitshares.openledger.info
then Existing Account > Import backup, I selected the .bin file
Nothing happen.

What I mean is the backup file created from bitshares.org/wallet is not properly importing in bitshares.openledger.info

Oh .. that worked like a charm for me ..
This is what happens here:

If I provided the passphrase it would import the backup
