I am trying to save an old version of Alfresco Community 3.2r - the data is there and once it's rebuilt, I'll work on updating it. For now, I managed to install a clean tomcat/alfresco system and everything runs fine. No error messages, and just a nice log file of starting things up. Now, when I migrate my alf_data folder, and the alfresco/extension/ files (we had our own content management model), it no longer works.
I think that there is an issue with reconciling the alf_data folder & content models with the database (since nothing else has changed). I'm not sure where the "workflow" comes in.
The alfresco.log file gives:
22:41:29,326 INFO [org.alfresco.config.JndiPropertiesFactoryBean] Loading properties file from class path resource [alfresco/repository.properties]

It seems the there is a workflow definition in repository ,but the content of this workflow definition node didn't exist. if it exists ,it should be at store://2011/5/25/14/27/6ac015da-db3a-4ad8-8736-bc5e2ea059bc.bin. You can check your repository 's folder --/app:company_home/app:dictionary/app:workflow_defs in your old Alfresco Community 3.2r If workflow definition noe that cause error in this folder is no longer used ,you can try to delete it first and reupgrade again.
