Move To A New Server And Database

Recommended Posts

I have to change hosts. How do I change the configuration settings for the revive adserver? I will have a new domain name and database. I am assuming that I there is a file somewhere that store the database connection information. Can I simply move the files to the new server, restore the database and change the config file to point to the new database? Or is there more to it than that?

 

Thanks

The Revive Adserver configuration file will be in your installation's "var" directory. It will have a name based on the domain name the site is running on (or installed with) with a .conf.php extension on the end. So, for example, it may be called "www.example.com.conf.php".

Sorry to hyjack... but I'd like to do something similar. I have ftp access to the existing openx install but that is all beyond logging in as a manager. The install has somehow become corrupt and I can only log in to it as a manager, so I can't access details such as database name, username or password.

Is it still possible to copy the database from the old system to the new? My new revive install is on a different server and is working properly with test data. I do have administrator access to the new install :)

Thanks

Simon

Hi sleah,

Just try the following, it might help you.

  • Move OpenX files and database to different server.
  • Upgrade the OpenX to Revive version.

 

Thanks, it had crossed my mind that it might work?

I guess doing the upgrade may recreate the default admin user?
