ummmmm, just upgraded pp to 5.0.3.....i had no errors, got thru the moving of files, said to click here to continue then went to a page that says "Updating filenames..." It doesnt look to be doing anything?
while Im waiting it just occured to me that like a whole lota other people we use photopost as gallery software for vbulletin, for some reason this diddnt click till just now....Are all my members vb posts with images broken now? Since they are all -med -thumb etc?
Haveing the host install a second Hard drive in the morning. Then I can rebuild the thumbs and meds.
I cant remember exactly if it was a script someone had writen or what. It was something that checked each file in /data/500 for a match in the ppphotos table and if there wasnt a match deleted the photo. I could probably get a gig or two outa something like that.
As far as upgrading goes Im gona have to wait to figure something for all the pics posted in our forums. Every thread will have broken img tags.
so this rebuilding isnt working. i restored the backup of the pp tables that i made right before the upgrade. im running pp 4.8.5, i go to rebuild thumbs and mediums, get no errors but it only does to 400 or so photos then gives the results.....I have 65k+ photos. this is getting very annoying, our gallery has been down a week.
Had no problems with the upgrade, except that it filled the harddrive. On a new server now with a bigger hard drive, could upgrade no problem. But our photopost is heavily intergrated with vb3. All the thumbs that are used in the posts will be broken with the new directory structure/filenames of photopost5.
I am trying to get everything back the way it was. I have restored the pp tables, uploaded backup of 4.8.5 and am trying to use the option of rebuild thumbs and mediums in the admin cp. It does a couple hundred then stops. At this point ive zipped everything that was moved to /data/thumbs and am downloading to rename them all back to -thumb then upload them back to /data/500.
