I assume you mean the XOOPS_ROOT_PATH? Yes I updated that.

URL's broken in modules after migration

Hi,

I've just migrated a XOOPS sites from one cpanel server to another using it's 'transfer account' function. Initially all seemed fine then I realised the following:

- images were broken in Xcgallery.
- clicking on a forum (CBB) topic resulted in error 404.
- clicking on a Smartfaq item resulted in error 404.
+ some more...

After closer inspection it seems that at module level URL's are being created minus two directories deep (e.g. missing the ../modules/newbb/.. bit).

Old server:
PHP 4.4.5
Mysql 4.1.22-standard

New server:
PHP 5.2.5
Mysql 5.0.51

I installed a vanilla copy of XOOPS on the new server, stuck the CBB module and it worked fine...

Not sure what to do now??? I dumped the live site database and imported it into the vanilla XOOPS install but that resulted in a white page and no error messages (with debug on and show errors on in php.ini).

Right, o.k...

After the 4th attempt at dumping the database and backing up the files my site has sprung back into life. I think the database dump was the culprit. It's a hefty 68mb, what with a gazillion private messages in there.

Is there a way to set the notifications as email by default rather than PM?

That age old problem strikes again... running into a blank white page after migrating a site.

So, I backed up DB and site files. Imported DB and uploaded files to new server. Modified mainfile.php and run the new location in the browser and I get a blank white page. Turning debug on results in this:

Quote:

Notice [PHP]: Only variable references should be returned by reference in file include/functions.php line 493
Notice [PHP]: Only variable references should be returned by reference in file include/functions.php line 493
Notice [PHP]: Only variables should be assigned by reference in file class/database/mysqldatabase.php line 236


Originating Server:
FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE
PHP 4.4.2
Register_globals ON
MYSQL 4.1.19
Xoops 2.0.13.1

New Server:
Linux Fedora 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp
PHP 4.4.2
Register_globals OFF
MYSQL 4.1.21


re-backed up the files and database incase they were corrupt, but that hasn't yielded any results.

Can anyone help?

Hmmm, the site files are a straight copy of those on the (previously working fine) old server. So I don't see how any additional garbage could have got in echo statements? (or is that just a bad assumption?) I'm also not sure where to go looking to be honest.

[EDIT] Found the problem, it was the 4 chareacters 'wher' that had somehow been inserted before <?php in mainfile.php.

Site Migration: problem with 4 characters before doctype

Hi,

I'm in the process of moving a XOOPS installation from one server to another. The database is now in situ on the new server and the site files have been uploaded. When accessing the site in a browser I noticed 4 characters appear first, those being 'wher'. Looking at the source reveals this:

wher<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">


Can anyone shed some light on what might be causing this (and throwing IE into quirks mode!).

TIA.

Aren't you missing the point?

It doesn't matter how good the house looks if it's built on s**t foundations. Eventually it will fall down.

The visually impaired man doesn't care how good the house looks, he just wants to be able to get around with ease.

This is not to say that visual styling and layout are not important. But to ignore how pages are built or attempt to devalue well established "best working practices" is just... foolish IMHO.

Yeah thanks for that... I was kinda hoping it would be some big scripting problem so that I didn't look so stupid.

Ah well, problem solved, thanks for your help.

CBB missing topics

Xoops 2.0.13.1
CBB 1.12

Since migrating a site to a new server we've noticed some discrepancies in the forum. The main forum index page lists the topic quantities correctly but once entering a forum the number of topics listed are less than they should be. See here for the forum, check the topic numbers for a forum like 'Circus & juggling job offers' then go into the forum to see what I mean.

This problem seems to be getting worse also, more and more topics are disappearing from view. Has anyone else experienced this? And more importantly, does anyone know what might be going on?

On the grounds of useability, accessibilty and generally #OOPS# good organisation of a lot of content.

Open to users with disabilities, mobile platforms and multiple languages.

For interested parties, there's a document available detailing the redesign process (8mb PDF):

The Glass Wall - The Homepage Redesign 2002

Obviously this document is 3-4 years old, but still holds some relevancy in this context.
