I'm trying to move my indexhibit site from one server to another - when the site was created, it was the older version of indexhibit, and now there is cms 2, which makes things a bit tricky when it comes to moving it.

I imported my database from the old server, copied all the files over. However, since I don't have access to an old indexhibit install, I don't know how to make this happen. I was able to do an install of the new version, but I don't really know where to go from here.

My logic tells me that I should find a an old version of indexhibit, and install that on the new server, overwrite the files with the exported website, and upgrade from there. But I don't know where to find the old version!

Would this be the correct procedure or is there another solution?

Thanks

And if this is the correct procedure, how would I find the older version?

Indexhibit 2 is better than the old version. How about asking questions pertaining to what you don't know how to do for it...

I completely understand that Indexhibit 2 is better than the old version. My ultimate goal here is to use the new version. However, since I have to move between servers, the process is tricky, because the filetree/folders are different from the old version, and so I'm having problems in that regard.

Perhaps I didn't explain clearly..

I want to restore my website from the previous server. However, it was built using the old version - so restoring it is seemingly impossible without first installing the old version on the new server.

If you don't have access to your old server - your old site is gone. You can't restore it...

Otherwise, just move the files and database to the new server.

I have everything backed up. It's not as simple as this is it? I've tried that....It has to be installed on the new server to work, no? There is no install.php file because the instructions say to delete that file upon installation- the original install was done by someone else.

Am I wrong here?

If you could provide me with the previous version's install.php file that would be very helpful.

Just to be clear, I have purchased both the old and new versions.

You don't need to install it - by installing the old it clearly means that you have lost your old site. It's gone. It doesn't make sense that you want to install the old version just so you can upgrade to the new.

Installing v2 is easier now.

How is it that I've lost it? I have all the files, and the database from the other server backed up. That logic just doesn't add up! I appreciate your help, I just feel like you're not fully understanding the details of my issue.

That logic just doesn't add up!

You do realize that I created this project, right?

Then just install those things. You don't restore a site by installing it via the install.php file - that simply will not work.

You import the old database into your new database (if you don't have this your old site is gone). Move all your files to the new server. Then, you update the database connection file /ndxz-studio/config/config.php - and things should be good. Then, you can upgrade to v2.

I imported everything, changed the database settings, and I'm getting a 500 internal server error :(

Which means that it's not connecting with the database - what are the connection strings (but don't post the password). You are making progress...

Is that the information you were asking for?

I see that there's an index.php in the root folder, as well as in ndxz-studio folder. Is this correct?

If the info is correct it will work. You might need to make sure that your db user has all privileges - the hosting tools would have this.

Yes, there are many index.php files in your structure.

All privileges are set to yes. This is the error I'm getting -

"The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.
The script had an error or it did not produce any output. If there was an error, you should be able to see it in the error log."

RESOLVED! For some reason my ftp client did not upload the db folder!

Will you have a look?

Hold off on that...I'm going to use another ftp client and start over.

Sigh...it's for some reason redirecting to the back end of the site still.

Best Answer!

Can you verify that your domain name redirects to the root directory of your server and not some other folder?

You have the wrong index.php file in the root.

This is the index.php file that is currently in the root. Is this incorrect?

Ok guys, I finally got there. You were right, the domain name for some reason was pointing to ndxz-studio folder. What a simple solution. Thanks so much for your help on this!!!!
