Hi Doug,

Is this in the data or is this a view issue? That is, if you edit the record, do the double quotes appear escaped?

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] 1.0.4 to 1.1.2 upgrade results in " appearing in collection names

I installed aspace version 1.0.4 and migrated our Archon 3.21-rev2 data to it using the most recent version of the migration tool. The data seemed fine. Then, I used the instructions at
to upgrade 1.1.2. After the upgrade, there are a few dozen collections which look like this:

"A Historical Look at University Housing" Vertical File Manuscript
"Let’s Go" neweletter of the Motor transport Reconstruction Park 772, Verneuil, Nievre, France
"My Friend Harry" by Doris Larson

This seems to only have happened to Collection names and Digital Objects names. I don’t see any instances of this happening to the names of Accessions, Subjects, Names, Classifications or Repositories.

Aspace is on Ubuntu 14.04 and Archon is on Ubuntu 8.04, happy to send more system details if they will help. What logs/configuration information, etc. could I post to help diagnose this problem?
