  • temp move of my forum

    hey all--
    My WEB provider is having problems with the server I am on, and php is down for at least the next couple of days.

    My database is up and un-moved..

    I have a friend that will allow me to setup my forum on his site, temporarily, until my ISP can get this resolved.

    What is the best way to do this.. ???
    a DNS change is not possible right now either...

    Thanks!
    Eric C

    EDIT::
    BTW:: I NEED HELP FAST!

    You could move your database and forums over to the new server and leave an htaccess redirect in your old forum directory to the new temporaty site.

      why move the database ?

      I can do the other stuff, without a problem...

      one thing I was a bit worried about (but not a show stopper) is it will kill everyones cookies ????

      My users are not of the highest computer tech ability... so i get a lot of password requests and simple stuff like that..

          1. Most servers do not allow remote connections to the database. However you can always try and see if it works.
          2. I'm not sure what afect this will have on cookies. I had to do this myself once and there were no reported problems for the day-and-a-half I moved the forums.

              we.. I am completly screwed now...

              I can't use myphpadmin to connect to the database to do a dump,
              I cant use the forum to do a backup,

              So even if I could get a DB setup on the new server today, I still can't get my data...

              UGH!!!!!!!

                    that answered 95 % of my questions..
                    my last one is just a command option for the mysqldump command

                    my www server, and DB server are not on the same server..

                    so when i try the mysqldump it tells me the db does not exist..

                    where can i specify the name (or ip) of the server to connect to ?

                      You don't need to specify the server. However you do need to run mysqldump on the server with the database.

                        I don't have telnet access to the server with the database...

                        however.. a man of mysqldump gave me a -h parameter that will let you switch hosts you are connecting to.

                          That only works if the server allows remote connections which, as you've already seen, it doesn't.

                              The web server is different from the MySQL server. The problem is that the MySQL server does not allow remote connections.
