  • The problem was the original site was hosted in a subfolder named: bbh

    And when I moved the site-its in the root directory without the /bbh/ folder. Yet, the resumes are still going to the path with the /bbh/ in it.

    Did you do a fresh install or did you migrate the DB ?

    Did you do a fresh install or did you migrate the DB ?

    My host just copied everything over. Would re-installing the plugin fix the path?

    I dont want to lose any data either-just want to fix the path.

    The problem is that each applications URL is attached in the DB to a specific Resume.

    We are looking at how do accomplish this now as the new version has a security enhancement that will require you to archive all the old data anyways.

    Fixing the path is not an easy task, made more complicated based upon how many entries you are currently storing.

    One thing you can check with your host…when they moved everything did they
    Check database prefix after the move to ensure that table prefixes were changed to to the new environment settings ?

    Alternatively:
    Since were almost at years end here is my suggestion based upon a similar scenario I encounter with a Migration now over a year ago

    1. Archive and remove any jobs and Applications that are over a year old….i.e. only keep any jobs that are 2014 in the DB.

    2. Download your WP-Content Folder

    3. Export copies to CVS of your now pruned Applications JM Page.

    4. Then make a DB backup

    5. Be sure to copy and or annotate any configurations you have made to
    Job Manager settings: Admin, Display, App Form and Job Form settings as well as any custom css and or coding mods you or your dev may have made to plugin files.

    5. Remove the plugin and all it’s associated files

    6. Log out of your Install and when you log back-in be sure to
    refresh you browser , clear browser cache

    7. Ensure your hosting provider has capability to allow for PURGE of page-cache, the CDN cache, and the object cache.

    8. Disable any CDN

    9. Perform a Fresh install of Job Manager

    10. IMPORT YOUR DATABASE

    11. Import your WP-Content Folder

    NOTE: This is a lot of work.

    DISCLAIMER: I can’t make any assurances this will work
    for any specific case as every hosting environment and install is unique to the end user. Variables such as Server Configuration, Memory Allocation, Plugins and Themes that we can’t account for.

    All I am really worried about is changing the path so that future resumes are stored in the right place. Surely that cant be that hard to do?

    Nothing is that difficult if you have a developer than can dive into the code and make changes. The mapping of DB Tables is something your Hosting Provider should have reviewed before and after they migrated your site.

    We are looking into providing support for issues like this in the future.

    So…..this means no, there is no easy way to correct the file upload path?

    No string of code in a file to update?

    Why has this been marked resolved? The path is still broke. I will ask my question again: Is there no easy way to correct the file upload path?

    No string of code in a file to update?

    Seems a little silly to have to go through all that just to change a path?

    If I uninstalled the plugin and then did a complete re-install…wouldn’t the path be fixed?

    John,

    I feel your pain on this issue, I have dealt with it on several sites.

    Surely that cant be that hard to do?

    So…..this means no, there is no easy way to correct the file upload path?

    No string of code in a file to update?

    Migration issues are challenging and there are so many variables that I can’t answer every unique issue in a forum like this. I marked this issue resolved because it’s not a problem with the plugin per see but one of installation/migration.

    If I uninstalled the plugin and then did a complete re-install…wouldn’t the path be fixed?

    Uninstalling and re-installing the plugin won’t correct a data base table corruption or directory change as is your case., because the data is still stored in the db table array. You will have to go into the mysql Db / phpMyAdmin and make sure the DB has been dropped and then you have Permalink issues to deal with too.

      Here is another possible solution for you:

    Review this to ensure you followed those steps …in case your hosting provider moved everything you may may have to do it over following these steps.

    You can also try this plugin: http://www.velvetblues.com/web-development-blog/wordpress-plugin-update-urls/

    Have not used either of these approaches and so I can’t vouch for them, I have used the Steps I outlined yesterday on my Migrations and I know that works.

    I hope you understand and appreciate that what I can provide in this context is limited. Please do let others know here if this works for you?

    Thanks
