View Full Version : Transfered Servers
August 9th, 2008, 06:07 PM
Alright, I screwed up lol. I transferred servers, finally figured out how to change the script so people could upload new images to the new server but I accidentally uninstalled photopost and now all the images are gone, I did back them up and already uploaded them but they are showing up in the "broken images, or orphan images" how do I get them back? Please and thank you :cool:

I uploaded all the photos that I backed up, but they show up in the usercp under vbgallery, maintenance, scan database, all the images I transferred over through FTP show up as "Scan your database for problems such as orphaned or broken images."

Please post a test user login so I can view your gallery. You transfered files through ftp and did you restore the database as well?

Refresh my memory on which files would transfer over the categories and images? Which database I mean. Thanks again.

You would need to restore all your ppgal_ tables as well as restore the actual disk directory to restore a gallery
Now your gallery is closed and I am unable to see anything

turned it back on sorry about that. If you could give me some instructions on how to restore the gallery I'd appreciate it.

Okay well from what I see your ppgal_images table comments table etc is all empty
You would need to restore your database using a tool like phpmyadmin etc to restore your table data from a backup
Do you have a database backup? if not you need to start over fresh.

I saved everything from my old server, where would the database backup be? Would it be the same database for vbulletin or what? Please go into details to the steps I must take, thanks

I have a feeling you're not going to like this answer, but the database backup will be wherever you saved it.

Exactly you need to restore it from a backup you did and saved somewhere. I dont think anyone here could tell you where you saved it. If you did a database backup you would know and you had to have one to restore it to the new server.
