[Solved]: Keeping two cpg installations "in step"
« on: March 30, 2008, 10:54:10 pm »

I have cpg installed on a live site and also on a local development version of the site running on XAMPP.

I prefer to upload new pictures, and add captions to them, on the local development system. If I transfer a dump of the local MySQL db to the live site, and ftp the images (full size, normal and thumbnails) with the exact same Albums folder structure, can I be sure the two cpg installations are keeping "in step".

It seems to work fine, but I wondered if there were other cpg files that I didn't know about which get modified when you add pictures and which I would also need to upload ?

That's not entirely correct: you'll lose the hits counter if you constantly overwrite the www table with the local one.

Thanks guys.

I'm not too worried about the hit counter, but I guess that if I were to download a dump of the www MySQL db to the local XAMPP  before adding new pictures offline, that would also stay in step.

Thanks again for your help - my main worry was that there might be some other "internal" cgp files that got changed in addition to Albums and MySQL.
