Link Library
changing servers (4 posts)

    I moved my WordPress site with Link Library from one hosting company to another, so I imported my plugins as well as all the data. I went through the database and edited a lot of path and file location info, including the "rsscachedir" location in the link library data, which was pointing to the old server. Link Library didn't like that -- each library disappeared in the admin and I got a "divide by zero" error on the front end for each library. Putting the old "rsscachedir" location back into the data fixed the problem.

    Is there a correct way to update the data that won't make the libraries disappear? Will the "rsscachedir" location matter if we wipe the old server?

    Also, the Link Library general settings reset themselves back to default a couple times while I was making these changes, so I had to keep overwriting them with the data from my old WP installation. Is there a simple explanation as to what triggers the general settings reverting to the default? Just curious.

    Thanks again for the plugin and all your help.

    Have you tried updated the RSS cache dir through the interface? Did the directory that you were trying to set the cache dir to exist and have correct permissions?

    I made the change right in the database rather than doing it through the interface. It appears that that does make a difference, as I just updated the rss cache directory for one of my libraries through the interface and so far everything looks okay it.

    I didn't know that it makes a difference whether this is done through the interface or right in the database.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, again!
