Moving pics to another drive (disk full)
« on: April 02, 2007, 06:37:15 pm »

Hello,

   I've recently noticed that the drive hosting my gallery + server (apache+mysql+php on winXP) is running out of space, and thus I like to move some of the existing albums to another drive. Do I just move those pics to the new drive and update the indexes in the database? or is there a more graceful way of doing it?  I wouldn't mind moving ALL of the albums to the new drive if that's the easier/safer way to go ... or maybe i should move the whole CPG installation as if moving to a new server? But how about the directory structures and such ... hmm   :-\

   Thanks!

 ;)

you could move the entire albums folder to the new drive and create a symlink to it

No real symlink on WinXP. Not a server OS anyway. Note that we do not recommend self-hosting.

Yeah ... i investigated the symlink option as well (experimented with Apache for some other stuff and it seems to work) ... but i haven't thought about moving the entire album and use symlink! Thanks for the suggestion  ;)

Hello GauGau ... what's the reason behind this? I mean ... someone has to host the gallery ... and why it shouldn't be me?  Thanks  :P

Because maintaining a webserver that is available on the internet is a pro-job that requires 24/7 maintenance and a lot of work. Has been discussed in detail on other threads. We recommend web-hosting unless you're a professional, experienced webserver admin and you are willing to spend a lot of time maintaining it (checking logs, subscribing to various bug report newsletter, keeping your server up-to-date).
