  • another Moving Hosts Problem

    Howdy

    I am in the process of moving hosts

    current url www.austouring.com

    I am trying to get the forum running on a temp URL at the new host, www.hytram.com so I know everything works before the proper change over..

    I have the board up and running, meaning I have changed the config file correctly?

    but as soon as you click on a thread you get

    Code:
    Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected ';' in /home/hytram/hytram.com/forum/showthread.php(2168) : eval()'d code on line 523
    I do not have shell access to the old database (MYSQL4) but I have downloaded the tables in small groups in zip format
    followed this
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...myadmin_backup

    the new DB is running MYSQL5 and I used compatibility mode in the import

    I have also tried importing all separate DB tables (all 162 of them) from the backup mod I have running and have the same result

    any idea where I can start looking?

    To troubleshoot this, first reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

    [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

    Next, disable all plugins.

    Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

    Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

    Do you have the same problem?

      thanks I will give that a try tonight...

      but seeing I have spend about 8 hours on this, will spend a hell of alot more and only have about 6 modifications and a simple style

      though causing an extra 24 hrs in forum down time would a fresh install just be simpler?

        Ok...

        did what you said and it is now working

        where to from here

        Do I just edit the new style to match the old one.. not a big problem

        turn the plug in on one by one? to see which one could be erroring?

          Yes, turning them on one by one will help identify this.
