I have my forum (VB
3.5.3) and photopost (5.3) up and running perfectly at twtex.com.
I created a subdomain named twttestvb.twtex.com (password protected to keep the VB
people happy) and made a copy of my live site. I created new DB files for the copy to use so I would not be messing with the live databases. I then updated the config.php for VB
and the config-int.php and config-inc.php files for photopost to point everything to the subdomain and the new databases. The forum works fine and sees the subdomain and new database files. However, ALL of the links in photopost still point to the live domain twtex.com.
From my config-int.php file...
// We need to know the server paths to both your vB installation and your PhotoPost installation |
$vbpath = "/home/vbscott/public_html/forums";
$pppath = "/home/vbscott/public_html/photopost";
// We need the URL path to your PhotoPost and vb installation
$url_path = "http://twttestvb.twtex.com/photopost";
$vb_urlpath = "http://twttestvb.twtex.com/forums";
// The URL of your photo dir where your images are stored (with / at end)
$data_dir = "http://twttestvb.twtex.com/photopost/data/";
When I click the link on my forum navbar to open the photo gallery, the gallery opens, but there are no images and ALL of the links still point to the live domain. It is almost as if the info in the config-int.php file is not being read by the program. Thus if I try to go into the Admin panel to set all the Global Options for the new path info and also to update the Storage Options, ALL of the links still point to the live domain. Any changes affect the live site.
I used different database names and usernames to make sure I did not accidentally leave a reference to the live DB in the config files. I can't think of anything else to check. I am sure it must be something ridiculously simple, but I just don't see it!?
