Yeah, wouldn't be the first time I was on a different wavelength than the person I was talking to....
Here's what I did:
- Installed new vBulletin license on a new site.
- Copied vBulletin database from old system that had PhotoPost 5.3 tables installed on it to the new site. I did NOT copy the PhotoPost program folder to the new site.
- Purchased a PhotoPost 6.01 license for the new site and installed that this morning onto the new site as a NEW install.
At this point, should I instead run the 6.01 UPGRADE script on the new site even though a new 6.01 install was done there previously? Will this update the PP tables on the vBulletin database or did the new install corrupt them? And then copy the DATA folder from the old site to the new one?
The config files on the new site have been modified to work correctly. At least it appears to be the case.
Yes, I read over that other thread, twice, but it appears to be related to copying a standalone copy of PhotoPost from one server to another. It doesn't appear to cover the mistakes I made in this process. Re-copying the vBulletin database from the other site to the new is no longer an option.
At this point, I guess the main question is: Can I just copy the DATA file from the old site to the new, run the UPDATE routine for the 6.01 license I have and is now installed on the new site, and be up and running?
Sorry if I am not picking this up as quickly as you would like. This is all old hat to you, but I don't play with this kind of stuff every day.
ps, Merry Christmas to you as well, Chuck. Thanks for helping us out with this stuff.
