View Full Version : How to move Pixelpost from one webhost to another?
07-31-2007, 04:56 AM
I am using PP 1.4.3 (I think) and want to use this same version at the new host. I have a database of over 1,000 pictures.
I downloaded all the files from current host and uploaded them to the new host. I backuped the database and imported it to a new database at the new host. These crucial tasks are done.
What do I have to do next? I.e., what files do I have to change, what php file do I have to run to get everything back together again?

You have to change the pixelpost.php file. Here the passwords and MySQL database info are given.
Once you did this, login your adminpanel and browse through the options. Change all references from the old site to the new.
And please consider updating to 1.6. Version 1.4.x has major security issues.

Thank you for the info.
I decided to upgrade to 1.6 and everything looks OK EXCEPT I lost all EXIF data. None is displayed.
How do I get these back (easily).

I wrote an addon for that which is included in the 1.6 version.
Go to the admin panel, addons and look for "Update EXIF" button.
This will fix the exif problem.

You are a genius. This addon fixed the EXIF problem with a minor problem: the metering mode data previously was displayed, now is gone. Most likely a variable name has been changed? If you can tell me where to look, that'll be great.
Also, a related problem: previously, ISO data were extractable from some camera's images (Canon XT, for example) but those from Canon G3 weren't.
Any solution to this problem? If I use the Canon software to view EXIF data then all cameras do show ISO values of their photos.
Thanks again for your help.

Hmm.. there might be an issue with exifer. We also might have fixed it in the upcoming release.
Did the metering mode data come from an addon? In that case, this addon needs to be updated.
Could you point me to some of the pictures causing you trouble? I can have a look then.

I fixed the metering mode problem by doing what you said!
Here's the link to the website where you can find missing ISO data for the Canon G3 and Canon S10, while the ISO data for Canon XT was displayed:
(I used EXIF_ISO for the info)
BTW, the thumbnail adjustment frame is INACTIVE in IE. If I use Firefox, there is no problem adjusting the thumbnail image. Have you heard of this problem?
Thanks again for being so helpful!

I'm gonna have a look later today at your images.
The thumbnail adjustment frame you use is probably 12Crop and IE has some issues with it. As it is a third-party script we haven't figured out what to do with it.
Have a look at the FlashCrop (http://www.pixelpost.org/forum/showthread.php?t=2935&highlight=flashcrop) and be sure to read this post: http://www.pixelpost.org/forum/showpost.php?p=39003&postcount=27
