View Full Version : new install keeps the old database?
08-30-2005, 09:06 PM
I am having this problem as well (nothing shows): http://forum.pixelpost.org/showthread.php?t=1962
Since nothing works I am wondering to do a new install of the whole thing. Does this touch my existing DB in any way?

do you have access to your /admin? because there are a few things you should try before you reinstall.
can you post your general info please.

when i looked for the directories on your server like http://www.richardalois.com/templates/ i found that they did not actually exist. try changing your imagepath to ../images/ and make sure index.php has been uploaded to your server correctly.

The templates do exist.
I did not upload one of those two:
But now I am getting a really long delay before it displays anything (if it does at all). Looks like the script is ok and I am having a problem with my host?
When I do a new install, can't I use my old database? It seems to me the fastest solution.

yes you can. you can either drop all the tables in your current database or change the table-prefix in your next install's pixelpost.php.
