Re: IP address relocated

Oh, I checked about the permission rules for both Unix & Linux, witch a understand.. good stuff.

- Therefore, i haven'T found the the files that have that kind of writing in it. I guess i'll have to check them all, one by one, to know if the permissions are right inthere.

- At the same time, i do have a "Permissions" access board into my FTP file manager, that give me the chance to change the (read, write, execute) options. That, for owner & viewers. Maybe, it's sufficient enough?

At this point though, i'm really don't know what'S going on. Before the server migration, i've never played with FTP file codes and now, nothinsg is working??

Do you have any other tricks or thing that you could know that i could had as code into a file or something that would make the difference?

Or should i change something like: my whole system, the XOOPs template or the whole Godaddy hosting... i don't know anymore? Maybe, what i need is a very specialyzed website programmer or something??


Let me know what you think..
Thanks for everything.

Karl

Re: IP address relocated

Thanks Rod,

I will go learn more about the "permissions". I'm using linux though not unix. So, i'll check for linus first i guess.

Otherwise, Godaddy has been able to clean my "cache foltder", erasing all files in there. My website is still not working though. It is hard for me to understand how come Godaddy can manage my FTP files when i can't even do it myself or don't have the permission myself to do so.. And on top of that, i asked them to check "my website ownership settings" to see if everything was in orther and they didn't answer me on that one??

Anyway, i'll go read about the permissions for now and will certainly be back for an update.

Thanks, it's very appreciated.

Karl

Re: IP address relocated

Thanks once again,

First, Yes, i do have a FTP file Manager into my hosting account. So, i can see and work stuff up at the "root files" of my website. And i do have the "Files Permissions" option in it too.

(*I do not have access the the normal "Administration board or the normal website builder control panel" though. That website tool is no longer comming up either, as the website itself.) But, the FTP files manager is fine.

Therefore, i tried to adjust the "users permission" to the "Cache Folder & files" and a message pop up saying: "the permission change has been done successfully." Therefore, the small accessibility icon does not show up (at the extreme right of the file name and description) then, i still can't erase anything in there??? I'll have to request that to the hosting compagny.

So, it should be good regrading the "Cache Folder & files" to be erased.


*Now, i am definitly intrigue be the ownership aspect of the website. It sounds like something totally relevant. From what i understand, the hosting compagny should fix that themself.. isn't it?

I'll go with that and will be back with the resultes.

Thanks a lot,
Karl

Re: IP address relocated

Thanks redheadedrod,

I'm got so many helping responses that i'm now, i gatta watch carefully who i'm saying thanks to.. ah!

You definitly seems to know a thing or 2 about the net. And yes, i do have a linux server.

So, i check again the "cache folder" and there's nothing acan do with the usual/basic commands from the control panel. When i try to open a single file into that cache folder, i get that message:"The file could not be open, closing file."

So, contacting the host compagny, again, they effectively told me that they would try to remove those files for me. Therefore, regading what you just said, don't you think that i should focus more on getting that "chown-R" command in order into my files first? The ownership aspect of the situation here seems to me to be more a priority to be fixed.. isn't it?

*In this case, do we know where and in which file (or files) that "chown-R" command should be added?

Thanks,
Karl

Re: IP address relocated

Hi,

Thanks mrphilong,

I tried to delete what's into the cache file and basicly, only the 2 files that i talk about in my previous message got erased (2 files out of 16). Trying to erase the files, a message pop up a said: "Error! Delete was not successful" So, i can't even erase those files??? Unbelievable..?

Re: IP address relocated

Thanks a lot mrphilong,

The change is done. I haven't done enything in regard with the line: "# Change http://example.com to http://www.example.com (Optional)" seemed to me that it was already changed in your exemple.

So now, i'll wait for the change to processed. Therefore, i would like to know what we can erase in the "cache" file? There in fact 2 file that i shouldn't erase i think, such as:

- adminmenu.php
- xlanguage.php

*All the rest are a bunch of, (exemple): "http%?fs35363................_rss.html" links. I quest these are the ones that can go?

Thanks a lot again.
Karl

Re: IP address relocated

Thanks for taking some time on this trabis.

I checked about what Peekay said indeed. I couldn't find his exact line though. My lines or codes were always written in a slightly different way than Peekay..?? I made a change that seemed relevant to me but, 48 hours later nothing changed.

I really think that i just need to have Apache to be able to read or reach my FTP file. Because, everythings seems in order and relevant in my FTP files.

The .htaccess file doesn't seems to be read either..??


- Here below is the .htaccess codes i tried.

*************************

Redirect to www using htaccess redirect
Create a .htaccess file with the below code, it will ensure that all requests coming in to domain.com will get redirected to www.domain.com
The .htaccess file needs to be placed in the root directory of your old website (i.e the same directory where your index file is placed)

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

Please REPLACE domain.com and www.newdomain.com with your actual domain name.

Note* This .htaccess method of redirection works ONLY on Linux servers having the Apache Mod-Rewrite moduled enabled.

********************************

Is that an appropriate set of codes to use?

Thx,


Karl

Re: IP address relocated

Yes, i did indeed checked my A record and everything relate to the right IP in there.

There's below what Godaddy find as problem with my site, since it got migrated.

"The issue appears to be due to a redirect issue, as your index.php file is attempting to redirect. This is likely caused by a missing .htaccess file, as I was not able to find a .htaccess file within your hosting account. I recommend using your preferred search engine to find a suitable example."

So, now i'm looking for a "suitable exemple" of .htaccess file.

Any expertise or help would be appreciated.
Thx,


Karl

Re: IP address relocated


Hi mrphilong, and thanks for the help.

I was wondering if i should assingned or forward some subdomains to my new IP address (main domain name).

Would that have anything to do with seeing the content of my website or not?

Thx,
Karl

Re: IP address relocated

Hi,

I'm still working on the same website issue. After my server relocated my website IP to a new one, i can't access my (xoops admin page). Also, when we click "ENTER" on the front page of the website, nothing happen, the site stand still seeking for something to download.

Now, after questionning the hosting company, apparently they found that my ".htaccess file" would have been damaged or lost during the IP exchange????


Is anyone can bring help regarding .htaccess?

Such as:

- Is the exemple shown on this site below a good one to create a .htaccess file. ( http://www.htaccess-guide.com/how-to-use-htaccess/ )


- Where in the FTP directory should i download my new .htaccess file.


If any of you guys can give me some help regarding the .htaccess fille for FTP directories, it would be very appreciated.

thx,
