Missing Albums but photos still there after upgrading
« on: November 08, 2010, 04:41:38 am »

Hi,

I just upgraded to the latest version 1.5.8 I am on Bluehost.com and upgraded using Fantastico. The site is missing all the Album layouts and there doesn't seem to be any Admin functionality . When you click on the Albums you get nothing but when you click on Top Rated you actually see some of the photos. http://www.aidanmoran.com/copper/index.php?cat=0 is the web site. Help,  Ideas??

Thanks

Aidan

upgraded using Fantastico
http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/auto-installers.htm

Please perform a manual upgrade as that's the only way we can support.

You're using a theme that is not compatible with cpg1.5.x. If I change to curve, an error message appears. Please enable debug mode, so we can see the real error message.

Andre,
Thanks, I uploaded version 1.5.8 into www.aidanmoran.com/copper and it can't find the old database.  So I uploaded a new version of Coppermine in to a new folder www.aidanmoran.com/copper2 and it seems to work fine, except it is obviously empty. So now I would like to link my old database to the new version. Is this possible ? If so where is the old database stored (file name, extension ??) and how would I import it or link it to the new version. Thanks Aidan

Coppermine cannot auto-detect existing databases. You have to know the credentials (they are stored in include/config.inc.php of your 'old' gallery) and adjust it properly in your 'new' gallery. Seems that you deleted that file?

Yes.

Ask Bluehost


how would I import it or link it to the new version
You just need to adjust include/config.inc.php.
