Moving Site to new server - Missing Content
Built my first site with concrete which has been seamless. Love the platform and works great.
I have just followed a tutorial to move the site to a new server. I followed it word for word, files, database then cleared the cache and new sitemap etc.
The site is appearing with its full architecture, however 80% of the pages appear blank...
The theme pages appears and displays but cuts off half way down the page. All top level pages appear fine and full, the home page appears half and all subpages have no content.
I have re-uploaded these individual templates again, but still no joy.
I have repeated the whole process three times and the result is still the same.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Are the file permissions set properly, esp is the chmod 777 perms applied recursively to files and sub-dir's for the /files dir ?
"esp is the chmod 777 perms applied recursively to files and sub-dir's for the /files dir ?
Is the esp a file I can re-upload to confim it went successfully...?
The best way to do this is to use Filezilla ftp client, and after you are connected to your site ftp you can right-click on the \files dir and choose Chmod 777, , below there is a option that says Recurse to files and sub-dir you gotta choose this and let it set the permissions
Under further investigation, it appears that the page stops displaying due to the second block area on the page. If I comment this block out in the file, this block obviously doesn't show but the rest of the page loads fine.
Any ideas as to why this is happening..?
Really strange, any more ideas..?
When I go into an images properties ans re-scan the image it gives me this error
Unable to rescan Header-10.jpg. Error encountered: Call to undefined function imageCreateTrueColor(). Rescan halted.
It is trying to pull the image out of the library, but it appears it cant map to it properly. I cant see the source code, it just doesnt show.....
I can view the images fine in the library, the cache has been cleared loads too.
Would this issue be caused from not clearing the cache before moving the site...?
If you look at the src of your pages that are broken, does the src break when trying to displaying images loaded via the filemanager?
I would firstly check if this is installed, upload a php file with the following contents to your root..
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
..and search for GD to see if the library is available and GD Support is enabled, if not you will need to enable it, or if your unable to do so yourself request your host to enable it.
It looks like concrete5 does not want to be moved.
My website is http://www.searchbitcoin.com. Everything still works fine at that URL.
I tried moving it to a new VPS and now it does not work. Visit http://188.8.131.52/index.php/learn-about-bitcoins/... to see an example of the problem :-(
It appears that the PHP script is crashing before the page finishes rendering. The apache error log files are useless.
I will keep trying to find a solution for it myself.
