Hello everyone,

I had a message board set up a while back using version 2.3.2 that eventually had to be moved.

I've installed 2.3.2 on another server, but when I try to import the .gz datadump file, nothing happens. I point the import script in the control panel to the file, click 'Import Data', and it sends me back to admimport.php with the navigation on the left and no information whatsoever on the right.

Can anyone help? We've recently had a member pass away and many people would like to retrieve the PMs sent by this user.

Thank you very much!

Does your new server have zlib extension enabled for PHP?

Hmm when you get the white page does your browser appear to be doing anything? The import process is quite slow and if you have output buffering enabled it could be quite a while before you see any messages.

Also check your forum's & php's error log files to see if any errors can be found there.

It doesn't appear that it's doing anything because the second screen appears almost immediately (with no apparent activity forthcoming).

Checked and there is nothing at all in the Error or Action logs.

Other things I've tried:
- Relocating the .gz file to various other directories (web root, etc)
- Unzipping and trying to import the .fud file (same result).

If the old forum is still active it would be a good idea to upgrade that forum to 2.6.3 and the make a dump of that and import it into new 2.6.3 install. The code base you are using is quite old and I am not entirely sure what could be wrong with it.

Unfortunately the old boards are no longer up (server was wiped quite some time ago). Any other ideas on things I could try? I could care less about themes and such at this point... I'd just like to get the users & messages back.

Thank you.

Does your server have PHP's memory_limit enabled?
How big is the datadump file?

PHP Info shows: memory_limit 40M 40M

Unfortunately, I can't change these parameters as they are set by the host.

The file is 19,727,818 bytes gzipped and 83,120,013 bytes unzipped.

Hmmm it is likely that the problem is due to the script hitting the memory limit. To determine if that is the case turn on php's error logging facility and make it write the errors to some file you can later check.

Pardon my ignorance, as I don't have much experience with PHP, but how would I enable PHP error logging when I can't change php.ini as it's controlled by the hosting facility?

If you are using PHP/Apache (not PHP-CGI) then you can usually put .htaccess file that would set various options

php_value error_log "/path/to/log_file/"
php_flag log_errors 1

Dump the data from mysql manually and make an archive of all the forum directories. Then decompress this data on the server, import database data and modify GLOBALS.php to reflect the new paths & database settings.

You mean save .sql file import that file to another hosting
to local sql server!?

Then I should compress all data and decompress to local host!
That's clear!

One more thing when I making dump the forum dumps some data in tmp dir! My forums weghts about 24M
The output file after dumping with Gzip ~ 1.8M
Whithout ~ 9M

Is that enought to import these files to another hoster ? with http 500 error!

When I refered to mysql dump I was talking about making one manually via mysqldump or phpmyadmin.

It sounds to me like the automated dump tool is being terminated before it has a chance to complete. Non-the-less you can certainly try importing the dump on to a fresh forum.

I did that thing! But the The requested file globals.php should be in +include+ folder bud the forum requests globals.php
in +forum+ folder! In my old forum in +forum+ directory globals.php exists but this is not a file some kind of pointer!

Then I put globals.php in +forum+ dir and everething whent smoose!

Is that ok or I did something wrong!

The GLOBALS.php inside forum's main dir and adm dir are symlinks to the original file inside the include directory.

if you do not have shell access you can rebuild theme using the symlink() PHP function described here:
http://ca3.php.net/symlink

Ok! This fine!

One more quest

A got an old forum! Phpbb
I got a sql dump from that forum!

What kind of tricks should I use?

The main problem I got only one database on sql server available!

Would it be possible to restore forum and use two forums on
one sql server!

the possible ways to restore sql dump for phpbb then convert
it to Fud forum
but would it be possible to run two forums on one sql server
What about mixing tables ?

Any kind of ideas would be great!

All fudforum tables have a prefix you specified, which means it is not going to conflict with anything else asuming you pick a different table prefix for that application.

Did the forum's location & domain change? if so you need to update the GLOBALS.php with proper cookie & url.

Ok I finally logged In:) But now there's onother problems
Sinse I changed the hoster the pass for domain was changed!

Now while restoring archive back up the chmod for all directories had changed

When I'm trying to do some staff It's write :

Warning: fopen(/home2/domain/public_html/FUDforum/messages/msg_1): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home2/domain/public_html/forum/theme/default/post.php on line 1797

Or another actions the same!Forum does'n have permissions to change write ... When I tried to upgrade from 2.6.9 to 2.6.9
That was the same problems permisions is low!

Is there any globals to change my permissions or I should change
admin pass for a hosting pass but this the way I don't want to do so!

Any Idias!

One more question! If I create the dir with anought eccess and make a dump of the forum thanks god now I can do that
then install the new one and import old one with those bad permissions and other staff Wil that work?

Here is the thing, the files created by the forum are created as the Apache user (nobody) because that is who PHP runs as. So you need to make sure that this account has access to all forum files. So if you are getting permissions errors, chmod the affected files/directories 777 via FTP or SSH.

Yes I now than now! But try to understand all the files needs to be changed that took huge amount of time! Before I dont know about that after several attemts while upgrading again like you said to 2.6.9 again I was told by installation script that I can't do that can't do that Ok I started changing all permissions!
That took about 3 hours And stiil huge amounts of files left
But then what about security mesures changing that Is not the point! I become so careful After previous hucking 2 times of my forums (phpbb)
Thats peased me off thats why I choosed yours now I think this is the right choose !Smile

You can change the mode of all files with a single command (using the -R recursive flag):

chmod -R 777 TopFUDForumDir


The same applies to user and group names:

chown -R nobody.nobody TopFUDForumDir


Best regards.
