Re: Moving blog to new server

Thanks thh. I'll try that as a last resort. Will I be able to change the root field (serendipityPath) once it has installed (assuming it installs and works)? Also, re: serendipityPath: Is there a facility in phpMyAdmin that would let me simply change the value of an existing field rather than do an ...

Re: Moving blog to new server

Thank you for helping me yellowled. They do offer 7.x up to 7.3. Unfortunately, I've already moved the site, and I'm not sure how to re-establish the old site. I would guess that if I just install the newer version and point it to the old database, that it will not work. I did a "dir *404.tpl* /S" ...

Moving blog to new server

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ P.S. Version 1.5.5. (according to serendipity_config_local.inc.php) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hi, I let the nice man from godaddy talk me into moving my site to a new "CPanel" server. I told him I really didn't want to. That I really didn't have the time to move sites. He was persist...

Feature suggestion: Internal commenting

Hi, This is just a feature suggestion. Not something I need, but just something that would be nice to have. In my glossary ( example ) I have a set of message editing tags ([comment] blah blah blah [/comment]) that denote that anything between them is a comment, which is stored in the database, but ...

Re: Thank you for Spamblock (bayes)

Onli, Timbalu, Thanks. I'm still very hazy on the whole thing, but figure this will dissipate with more hands-on experience. I'll take your advice and add the bee. Timbalu, Your ordering conclusions seem well-based in reason, so that is how I will set them. Based on your reasoning, it seems like I ...

Thank you for Spamblock (bayes)

Hello, I recently installed the "Spamblock (Bayes)" plugin and just wanted to report here that it works great. I don't fully understand all of its options yet, but, right out of the box, it is catching most of the previous rivers of spam. I have the old spamblock, which is still installed. It doesn'...

Re: Changes to the comment form how to

That makes sense Timbalu.

Thanks for the clear explanation.

I'll give it a try (real soon now) and let you know how it went.

Changes to the comment form how to

Hi, I'd like to make changes to the comment form (just let people know which fields are required, for now). A little grepping seems to have led to commentform.tpl But, that's where it gets kinda hairy. I have competition as my template There is no commentform.tpl in templates/competition There are t...

Captcha Killers ?

I've been getting spam comments from sites/addresses that have names like this: CaptchaSucks BypassCaptcha Bypass-Captcha Captcha-Bypass captchaboss newdecaptcher Does this mean character recognition technology has finally obsoleted the captcha?

Re: Comments not in moderation but not displaying

Garvin,

Thanks. Interesting. Can you tell me the name of the setting for that, and how that looks to the SENDER in normal use? I added a test comment without seeing that (unless that is what the captcha is doing?).

Comments not in moderation but not displaying

Hello, I've noticed this problem since moving my blog to a new hosting provider, but it may have been there and been un-noticed before that. It shows comments in the admin->comments facility that "seem" to be approved. That is, it displays the "moderate" button, not the "approve" button under the co...

Re: Moving old installation to new installation accross serv

Garvin, et al.

Two moved blogs.

Everything seems to be working fine...

Needed the following when it told me it would no longer take my MD5 password:

But, came here, searched it out, and got it working.

THANK YOU!

Re: Moving old installation to new installation accross serv

Garvin,

Thanks. I got one blog moved and it seems to work perfectly.


Now I'm doing another one. . .
Oops. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
Had a question caused by an upload that didn't go. I'll report back when it works.

Re: Moving old installation to new installation accross serv

Garvin, Stuck! Keep in mind I'm trying to install this on a new server, and right now because it's just a test, under a different domain name. The first complaint was about "php_value" in the .htaccess file (never heard of it). I just commented them out. i.e., # php_value session.use_trans_sid 0 # p...

Re: Moving old installation to new installation accross serv

. . . Update: (see above message) : I commented out the CREATE DATABASE directive and changed the USE directive to the name of my test database on the new hosting provider's service. I was able to import the entire database, and it looks great! I have not yet tried to ftp up the blog files, but will...
