  • Moved Servers - Now posts don't show.

    I want to move my vbulletin installation from one domain to another, different hosting services, different mysql servers, the works.

    I've installed a couple of programs and packages, and have tons of smilies and avatars, etc, which I don't want to lose/reinstall. So.....

    I copied the /forums/ directory tree from one server to another. No problem.

    I dumped the database (using the VBulletin control panel admin function, since I do not have telnet access to the old server (one of the reasons for moving!!). I copied the .sql file to the new machine, and ran it through mysql into my new database. No problem.

    I editted my config.php file to point to the new mysql. No problem.

    I fired up the new URL, and the homepage of my board came right up. No problem.

    Sigh. Now for the problem.

    I can see the home page.

    I can go into any forum, and see the posts.

    If I try to pull up an individual post, all I get is a blank screen.


    Any clues? If I *have* to actually install vbulletin on the new server and start from scratch, I could do that, but that's going to suck for re-installing icons and avatars and such. I was hoping to just be able to **move** everything.

    Sigh again.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and Happy New Year.

    It's a white screen with nothing on it? Do you have this problem on the default style? Try reuploading the original PHP files and disabling any plugins.

      maybe some files got corrupted during placement on the new server, do like Jake and upload the files again.
