View Full Version : moving to new server woes
January 6th, 2011, 03:16 PM
i have followed this thread
i have moved over the directory but i have not chmod them yet as i am confused. I ma using filezilla and wondering if i could get help. i paid for getting it all setup last time. i have also moved my db over and vb works fine. Just the gallery does not. I am unable to log into gallery also.
i have edited the config files - both
from there i am unable to continue.

If you need us to do an install you would purchase an install service. I work for the company I can not take money on the sly to help outside the company channels.
changing directory permissions are like this no big secret
PhotoPost PHP Photo Sharing Photo Gallery Installation Guide (http://www.photopost.com/installphp.html)
As long as you changed your server paths before you moved in the database as noted in that thread and then you moved everything to the new server edit the config files with all the new proper info and server paths you should not have any issues.
You script should be working if that thread is followed. It is very very extensive and clear. I really can't suggest anything to help you in a support manner unless you tell me what your actual problem is. Site urls work also so I can see where your at.

sure i will pay. Just let me know how much. I did not change anything before the db backup.
www.cg-hq.com/gallery moved to CGWHAT (http://www.cgwhat.com/gallery)
Please advise on how i should proceed now ...
not sure why i thought moving this would be as easy as moving wordpress or VB hahah or i just can not read ..which i think that is it.

Well yes as that tutorial suggests there is lots that you have to do before moving so your urls and server paths etc etc are all different so it has to be properly reinstalled elsewhere.
vb is easy to move it is not dependent on server paths etc like a gallery.
If you want us to perform the install you would need to purchase an install service.

So for moving and reinstall will that work ? putting on new domain ?
January 6th, 2011, 04:04 PM
You can move and reinstall without loosing anything installing into the same database and tables you have moved essentially the install will update all paths urls.

okay i just paid for new install again to have it installed correctly. I am on msn for you to chat and i have a database backup also.
January 6th, 2011, 09:33 PM
well customer service will send me any install when its authorized to do so no worries.
January 6th, 2011, 09:44 PM
No problem thanks. If anything else i can do feel free to find me ...

I cant do anything till they give me an install so probally tomorow sometime since its 11pm

thanks chuck for installing this on the new domain. Just one slight issue. If you go to gallery when logged out there is not styling or anything. Really a mess.
January 7th, 2011, 02:10 PM
I am logged out and see your gallery without any issues. Where you maybe setting the gallery default style to come old missing style? Under vb admin panel your default style should be essentials_x I beleive if we are talking your site.
I suspect here you found your issue and corrected that.

hey chuck guess what ..I need it all done again lol ..same info as before. I forgot what did i have to do before to get you to fix it ? also do you need database at all . I do not think so . Let me know cause i had a server crash and backups was not going on there server. So i am starting back.
March 1st, 2011, 03:33 PM
would this be upgrade install cause i already have software and moved it all over. Just paths and some variables are mixed up ?
March 1st, 2011, 03:44 PM
It would be an install service $59.00 an upgrade is for a working copy not one we need to reinstall.
March 1st, 2011, 03:55 PM
okay i think i have it all working out but one part
if you go here and are not logged into the forums
CG- HQ Community for Maya, 3dsmax, XSI, and Zbrush (http://www.cgwhat.com/gallery/)
the paged is messed up ...then i can not login but if i go to my forum home and login things work fine.
how much to troubleshoot just that ..since that is only thing off. Not sure why. This is what i tried to explain before.

Also when i try to login that page and this is when i am not logged into forum it goes to page not found
but like i said if i go to my forum and login and then click on gallery link it shows up fine ?

Suggest you edit your vb standard error templates any relative urls to full urls.
You are using our latest code right?
March 2nd, 2011, 08:15 AM
well i could not figure it out so ordered your install service again. Just go ahead and delete all files. I did that last night but still same error was there . Let me know the fix as this has stumped me ..everything working but that one part.
Just maybe this time i will make sure my backups are working hahaha
March 2nd, 2011, 08:20 AM
Having backups is always a must if you dont want to lose anything
March 2nd, 2011, 08:30 AM
Yeah as the same sometimes
I guess i am paying the stupid tax cause i never checked my backups hahha
March 2nd, 2011, 11:36 AM
well we shall let you know if we need anything.
