[Mediawiki-l] Moving images in transferred wiki

Having moved a wiki from one server to another using mysqldump (thanks 
for all the previous help, everyone!), I then moved the images directory 
over as well. Unfortunately, none of the images are displaying. This was 
a move from a 1.6.3 wiki to a 1.6.9 one, so I diffed the old 
LocalConfig.php file against the new one, and the only relevant change 
we'd forgotten to include was '$wgFileExtensions = array( 'png', 'gif', 
'jpg', 'jpeg', 'zip', 'mov', 'pdf' );', which I then put in to the new 
config file. Still didn't work, unfortunately.

So I then tried creating a blank images directory, and using 
importImages.php to load all of the images. However, this gives me 
mostly 'no such file or directory' errors, presumably because I don't 
have the images/0, images/0/00, etc subdirectories in the images 
directory. I also get a few errors noting that a give file is already in 
the wiki.

Any suggestions as to the best course from here? Any thoughts on what 
might have caused the images to fail to display on the initial attempt?
