  • [Forum] Missing some attachments after domain name change and server move

    Moved my longstanding vb to a subdomain on my VPS site server (from russbo.org to forum.russbo.com), database appears to have been moved correctly, forum working fine except SOME inline image attachments are not showing up in the threads. When I "rebuild attachment thumbnails", apparently all of the attachments are present (about a thousand of them) in the rebuilding process, but they do not show up in the forum posts. Used the "Update counters" commands to rebuild the forum, threads, posts, cache and attachment thumbnails. The inline stuff is not showing. Using database for images. Have upgraded to 4.04, multiple upgrades over the past two years. Just noticed the missing image attachments.

    Suggestions as to how to get these to show? I suspect that the database is fine, as there are no issues in the maintenance tools section. Thanks!

    That really shouldn't have affected inline images. What did you do exactly?

      I screwed up, my bad... Noticed it after I had posted this. But another question now arises....

      These inline images were in a separate folder in the old domain, which is why they did not appear in the new domain installation. However, I have just put that folder back into the new domain, and the images still don't show. (Not a problem, I'll just edit the posts and upload them as attachments, there are not many).

      But, for educational sake, if you change domains, how do you get the inline images to, well, get found again? I can't see anything in the "edit post" section. Not sure if it's simply the image path that you put in the options area.

          HI Steve,
          Still having issues. I've "debugged", have the thread inline images folder within the vbulletin installation folder, have changed the "file attachment path" in vbulletin options/version info and other untouchables to point to this folder (have used a path such as ./inlineimages and .home/servername/public_html/forum/inlineimages )all to no avail. When I view the page source of the thread that should have inline images, it still calls to the old server (http://www.russbo.org/forum/inlineimages/threadpic.jpg) instead of the new one (http://forum/russbo.com/inlineimages/threadpic.jpg)

          Here is the page source reference: <img src="http://www.russbo.org/publicaccess/blmj.jpg" border="0" alt="" /> . It should be calling to forum.russbo.com

          Is there a way of editing each post? Seems like the individual posts are calling to the old server.

          Thanks!

            That does not look like an attachment because it is using <img scr ...>.

            What is the direct link to the post with that?

              It's not an "attachment" per se; it got posted within the post itself. Not sure what you call it. The images that were inserted using the "insert image" command in the upper box of "quck reply" or "new thread"

              http://forum.russbo.com/showthread.p...rated-at-Birth

              Does this mean I should change that path to attachments now? Does it matter? I have all the attachments in the database, they are showing up, as you'll see later on down in the thread. There should be an image in the first post. It's an "Insert image" picture, not an "attachment".

              Thanks Steve. You're fast...

                Than you will need to edit any posts with that URL.

                  OH, I see it now. Have to "switch editor mode" to have that "insert image" code to show up.

                  So, now that I have changed the "file attachment" code in the Untouchables region of the control panel, does it matter, if I already use the database to keep the attachments? I assume not..

                    Attachments and linked images are too different things. You can store attachments in the database or file system. It is up to you.
