View Full Version : Admin Lockout, Files to Upload
August 7th, 2005, 06:33 PM
Okay, got photopost installed again on my new server...however, I locked myself out of the admin area. Which file on my server do I need to go into to open the gallery up again since it was closed before?
My thumbnails and images aren't showing up....which files from my old server do I need to upload so those images people uploaded will appear again?
thanks in advance.

You need to specify the server path to photopost in your config-inc.php file and then you would need to actually view the database settings table and change the paths and cookie settings within that table. At the minimum the cookie settings need to be realigned and then you can login to admin and change the paths.

okay, got in to my backup - now....

You do not rebuild thumbs.
You would specify the correct data and uploads path in admin. If you try to do a rebuild with an improper path you will do nothing but clear your install of all photos.
You can view the php info to get the new path to the gallery data and uploads directory and enter those in global options

got it - worked great.....
one last thing:
my vbulletin menu within the gallery links to my old site. when straight in vbulletin it does not. is this a vbulletin issue or photopost? if photopost, where might i fix this? i've looked everywhere for any old references within what you've told me to look at with the other items, but don't see anything.
