Fixing features for hotfolder

Here is some documentation about the process I used to solve some issues with hotfolder and the features module. I was doing this partly through the web interface and partly through a console, so this is a reconstruction of what I remember and the console log. 


I was getting the following error message when I tried to check hotfolder watches (see https://www.drupal.org/node/2453659):

Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$field_watch_config_scheme


Drupal: Changing a text field to long text

Once you have data in a field, it is not easy to change the field type in Drupal. Looking at the database tables, I thought I could just change a couple things and it would work. Well, I was mostly right... the only thing that didn't seem to be working as the filtering not getting applied to the long text. By the end, I had to export and import the data for one table for it to fully work.So these are the steps I would do next time.
