You need to do two things:


  1. Back up MySQL database
    using mysqldump command
  2. Backup forum data and user files more precicely the (files,messages,settings and user_settings) directories.


After you move to the new host you may need to modify GLOBALS.php file to accomodate for your new file paths as well as new mysql settings.

1- I have transfer to the new host the new full version of the forum v1.2, and i have the "forum_install" directory in my new home directory.

2- I will move mySQL datadase to the new host

3- Install the FUDforum v1.2 on my new "public html" using install.php

4- move to the new host the OLD board data files(files,messages,settings and user_settings)

The forum_install directory is not really needed, it contains the installation files, but once that is finished you can delete it.


What you need to move are as follows:

You simply need to move your www docs directory which contains all the .php files and the adm and styles directory's.

And you need to move your forum data directory which contains the (files,messages,settings and user_settings)

Once you move them you need to remove the GLOBALS.php symlink from your docs directory and adm directories and remake them using a command like this

(go to your new docs dir where you put all the files from the old docs dir)
cd /home/newhost/www/public_html
rm GLOBALS.php
ln -s /home/newhost/forum_data_dir/include/GLOBALS.php
cd adm
rm GLOBALS.php
ln -s /home/newhost/forum_data_dir/include/GLOBALS.php

then update GLOBALS.php inside your forum_data_dir/include/ to reflect the new path's, and possibly new MySQL settings. After that import the MySQL data and it should work, if it doesn't, we'll we're always here to provide help Smile

Hi,
I'm running this with qmail.. just switched from postfix and sendmail before that..

This software doesn't care and doesn't have anything to do with mail configuration... it's just a mail user.

It runs just fine with qmail right out of the box.

FUDforum uses PHP's mail() function, so if your php install can send email, FUDforum will have no problems doing so either.

do you have a symlink to GLOBALS.php inside your /usr/home/vice_squad/public_html/board/index.php directory?

If you have a FILE GLOBALS.php delete it and make it a symlink to GLOBALS.php inside your include directory.
