moving coppermine gallery
« on: March 06, 2006, 02:44:09 am »

I want to move a coppermine gallery to a new server - what's the best way to do this? The gallery has several categories each with several subcategories and a total of 500 or so images. Would backing it all up via ftp to my hard drive then re-upoloading it all to the new server work? I'm concerned about permissions etc. I can back up the mysql database and have my new host restore it.

Any suggestions? thanks in advance.

Would updating to a new version (this uses v1.3.3) be advantageous during the changeover? If so, how would I go about it? I've not added any mods to this install.

To reduce the possibility of the introduction of external issues, you could move everything to the new server and then upgrade so you at least know that the gallery was working.

After restoring the files and database, update include/config.inc.php to match your mysql settings. If your gallery URL is the same, then that's it. If not, go into Config and update it.
