View Full Version : Moved website to new server, can't get photopost pro to work now.
August 21st, 2006, 04:21 PM
I've installed imagemagick.
I've set the proper paths, usernames, passwords ect in the config-inc.php. Yet, as you can see here:
A blank page shows.
(The DNS servers should be updated globaly so the url should work...)

If you have transfered the files and database and updated all paths and connect info it will show.
However I get the page does not exist so maybe a dns issue

Okay. I got it up and running. However, there are no thumbnails. What do you think is causing this?
August 22nd, 2006, 07:00 AM
You need to login to admin and in your global options and storage options input the correct server path to the data and uploads directories. You still have the old server path in there from the old server

Thanks! I changed the paths but the thumbnails still aren't updating. Have any idea on what I should do? Thanks for the help btw. :)

Did you not post in another forum you deleted your data categories all except 1 2 and 500
If that is so thats your issue your photos simply do not exist because you deleted them
August 22nd, 2006, 02:50 PM
No photos have been deleted. I will comb through all the URL and paths again...
August 22nd, 2006, 03:02 PM
This post you edited said you deleted everything except 500 1 and 2 directories
You have no photos now
The photos last time I looked at the site did not exist in the data directory on this server which means maybe you did not transfer them to the new server

That is not a full server path
You need to place full server paths where asked for paths and you need to restore a backup of your photos table since you emptied trying to rebuild thumbs in admin and your path was wrong

that is your base path for photopost yes and you must set permissions like this
August 23rd, 2006, 09:39 PM
Thank you. A few of those were set incorrectly however I do get the same error and when I scan the database it still can not fine the media that is present.
Also /tmp is set to 0777.

As stated in my initial posts you deleted a post where you said you deleted all data directories except 1 2 and 500. How are you going to show photos if they dont exist. This is something I brought up earlier
If your path is now right and you restored the photos table but the photos do not physically exist in the data directory your not going to be able to show em
Make sure to reupload the data directory with the photos
August 23rd, 2006, 10:07 PM
The data dir currently has, 1,2,500,501-507 populated with videos and pictures.
When I "scan the database" and rebuild everything it doesn't seem to be picking up the media but as you can see above the paths should be correct.
If I deleted a post it was becuase it had bad info in it.
As you can see in this link:
files are there. (forgive the content...) Again, thanks for helping with this.

Okay you must ensure once you restore the photos table that the server paths are correct in the Admin => Global options and Storage Options. If the photos do not appear then your path is incorrect

Your program can not find imagemagick try setting the processor to gd2 in global options
August 24th, 2006, 05:27 PM
I've found this, http://www.photopost.com/forum/showthread.php?t=108805
ah, yes I see your reply. Thanks, looking into that.
August 24th, 2006, 05:33 PM
Switching it to GD2 fixed that. I'll get the proper patch to morgify in a bit. Is there anyway I can rebuild the photo's and comments were already there?
August 24th, 2006, 06:21 PM
You need to restore a backup of the photos mysql table if you want photos to show again
August 24th, 2006, 08:41 PM
Alright! I got it going at 100% again. Thank you so much for all the help and my 100 questions. :)
