So we have been on a real lousy server and just got a dedicated one on a new host. But now comes the fun part... moving a 40k+ post site. :/
Looking for advice on the best way to approach this, to move the databases etc. Possibly even looking for a wee bit of help so I keep my sanity :P
Been trying to export the database but the file keeps failing - so yaaaa.... any tips are much appreciated!
Usually mysqldump is the best option, if you are running into issue's importing the sqlfile due to file size, increase your max_post_size php directive.
backup: # mysqldump -u root -p[root_password] [database_name] > dumpfilename.sql
restore:# mysql -u root -p[root_password] [database_name] < dumpfilename.sql
Depending on OS.. but I'm a Windows guy and have found that the best way for me to move a database is to install Navicat on the new machine then use it's "Data Transfer" method to move over all the data.
turn forums off before doing backup, wondering if thats why backup failing.
ooooo Thank you Rhett! - that was what I was looking for :)
Thanks everyone for your info. Gonna see if I can get this beast moved :P
fwiw I have done it MANY times, its not as hard as it seems. having ssh access to transfer over scp helps speed it up too if you have slow internet at home like I do
so - moved it on my own and logins and posts etc all working. Even the blogs and galleries.
Only thing that is not is the content - am getting this error:
Error: Could not load template 'template_basicsintro' from group ''
the template it is referencing is there - and all the pages are loaded as well... but not a single page is showing... every grouping gives the above error with a different template referenced.
can you access acp?
on one move I had similar error (not same) and had to reimport application hooks, then rebuild master skin data (checking everything) and then recache all skins. the rebuild/recache skins is something I have always had to do, the reimporting hooks was new that time.
then I also as habit recache furls/global/all in that order.
unfortunately that did not do it :/
when you say the content do you mean ip.content?
that just caught my eye
I believe so - its marked IPS Content in my ACP... where all the pages and articles are.
Driving me nuts... tried to even reimport a template to see if I could get it to work. Still getting same error.
shoot I cannot remember the fix for that one.
you file ticket yet?
no was hoping would get the answer here :) but doing that now because I have exhausted my knowledge of things to do to fix... everything else works fine, the blogs, the galleries, the nexus..... but not the actual content of pages.
