Server Move / Site Restore On New Server
My server somehow became compromised and I was forced to move my site (forums and photopost) to another server. All files and databases were directly copied by the web host.
My site is only accessed via IP address (I have my reasons). This presents a problem as many of the settings in photopost and vbulletin point to the old IP address.
I am running photopost 5.5 with vb3 integration (vb 3.5).
I made several changes to the configuration of both photopost and vbulletin, to reflect the new IP address (including config-int.php). Vbulletin appears to be working fine. I am not sure if the changes in the photopost admin cp were saved however, as I am getting lots of problems.
The Photopost gallery appears to be displaying properly (front page). However when clicking on any links to photos or galleries, it directs me back to my old server. I am having difficulty making IP address setting changes and even logging into the admin control panel. It continuously wants to redirect me to the photopost version residing on my old server. When I force a log on by typing in the address manually it says:
"In order to accept POST request originating from this domain, the admin must add this domain to the whitelist."
I added the new IP address to the whitelist in vbulletin on the NEW server but that did not seem to help. I cant think of what else to do.
The new gallery is located here: http://18.104.22.168/mediacenter/index.php
The old gallery is located here:
In another thread you suggested that a user change:
"photopost settings table in the database and in the config-int.php"
How does one change the photopost settings table in the database?
Through searching I figured out that I needed to make modifications through phpmyadmin. I went to the photopost database and changed the properties within:
to reflect the new IP address. This seems to have corrected the problem (in case anyone else runs into a similar problem). Though I have a lot more testing to do.
There is a sticky thread also that states how to move servers in the install forum
I searched a little before I posted anything. I checked the installation forums of both PP Pro and photopost vbGallery.
I could not find the sticky post you mentioned.
Maybe I was looking in the wrong place?
Regardless, now I am having a new problem when uploading an image. The settings are such that a medium image should be triggered when the image is over 700pixels. max height and width are 1500 pixels and the program is set to resize to max dimensions, if the image is over max dimensions. On the old server it did this flawlessly. But now, upon uploading a few images, they are processed, and the medium size image displays, but when you click on the medium sized image to show the full size, there is only the title of the image in a box. It does not display the full size image. I have tried this with images exceeding 1500 pixels and not exceeding 1500 pixels, to no avail.
right in this forum my friend
your storage path is wrong. Go to Storage Options in admin and click revert and save twice to load the server path you changed earlier. That storage path is still old
great. that worked like a charm. I am having one more problem uploading larger zip files.
I am pretty sure (from previous experience) this is due to my upload_max_filesize being set to 2M. I think changing that will fix the problem. My question is, what other php.ini settings should I change or consider changing?
Is there some list of recommended settings for php.ini? It seems like there should be but I searched a fair amount and couldnt find anything.
I am not sure what all those settings do, but it seems like I should consider changing:
but I have no real understanding of what reasonable settings would be, as I dont understand specifically what each one does.
- The times are in seconds right? Is 15 minutes each reasonable??
- Is there any limit for maximum file sizes within PHP? I remember reading a long time ago that there was a PHP limit around 20 megabytes. Has that changed? Can I set these to 50 megabytes?
- Should I leave any of these settings alone?
- Are there other settings I should change?
It seems like answers to all these questions would be in the installation manual or in the forums but I was unable to find it either place... if I am missing it please tell me where to look, otherwise, I appreciate you getting back to me when you have a chance.
Those should be okay
