Update Docs Section for Moving Serendipity to Another Server

Post by own3mall » Tue Nov 08, 2016 3:45 am

Hi, I moved an installation of Serendipity from an existing server to a new one. The HTTP environment wasn't the same, so I ran into problems. The paths were not setup exactly as they were before, so I had to do more than what is posted here:

https://docs.s9y.org/docs/faq/index.htm ... er-or-path

I had to update 3 config settings in the database before I could get the installation to work:

Code: Select all

UPDATE `serendipity_config` set value = '/faq/' WHERE name = 'serendipityHTTPPath';
UPDATE `serendipity_config` set value = 'http://{mydomain}.com' WHERE name = 'defaultBaseURL';
UPDATE `serendipity_config` set value = '/var/www/faq/{rest_of_absolute_path}' WHERE name = 'serendipityPath';
I think that should be noted in the docs.

Thanks
OwN
