Moving Legacy Site

Hi All,

Hit a bit of a problem, we have had to move an old site V5.5.2.1 from old enviroment which was shutting down to a new one. Not ideal but we have a database backup and the Public_HTML files.

I have restored both and updated the site.php to the new DB details. Additionally I have recreated the .htaccesss file to the default one but we are just getting an internal error 500.

I didnt think this would go smoothly but at the moment hitting a brick wall making any steps forward. I am able to browse the mysql DB via phpmyadmin and all looks good.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

You're going to need an old php version, I think (and probably an unsupported version).

Thank you for your reply, I have flicked the version back to 5.4 which should be ok but I'm still getting the same error on the page.

Apologies I have checked an 5.6

Ahhh, that worked... I think. Previously I think i had moved back the PHP but not fixed the other things.
