I'm having to migrate from TSOhost to 20i

Is there guide or any information on what I need to change/edit to successfully migrate this instance?

Any help massively welcomed!

Hi IfOnly
There isn't really a guide but what you need to do is (obviously I guess) copy all the files. Then you need a copy of your database and you need to recreate that database on the new host. Then make sure you change the database connection details in vsadmin/db_conn_open.php to point to the new database. Copying the database is best done via phpMyAdmin which is available on most hosts and will give you an Export and Import option, where just using the defaults seems to do a good job.

Hi,

Most hosts offer free migration and I see 20i does too.
Might be easier to get them to do it for you.

Did just that. Copied the files, exported the DB and edited vsadmin/db_conn_open.php

Had a "too many redirects" issue which was a simple .htaccess edit and all done.

Thanks for the replies

Website up - order taken. However can't login

Getting this :
Database Connect Error (2002) Connection timed out
You need to set your database connection in vsadmin/db_conn_open.php
For help setting your database connection please see...

Can I ask what you added to the .htaccess file to cure the "Too many redirects" error? I'm just wondering if you're accessing the old site by mistake.

Ok, I think I see what is happening and I think it's because you have a hidden "vsadmin" directory but you haven't updated the db_conn_open.php file in that hidden directory.

Ahhh ok - its seems I have two db_conn_open.php

One that sits in public_html/xxxvsadmin
and another that sits in: public_html/vsadmin

I just edited the version in public_html/xxxvsadmin to reflect the new dbase/user details hower now it redirects to https://www.tavistockbutchers.co.uk/vsadmin/login.php and states "Login Disabled:"

Does it need a separate user?

No, you don't need a separate user. It's just you have two copies of the vsadmin directory and one of them is set so that you can't log in to the ECT Admin. It's a security measure so that your ECT Admin is hidden. Just login via the one that is not "vsadmin". (I've edited the name by the way so it's not visible on the forum.)

This is the currernt .htaccess, it was brought over from the old hosting platform, but can't see anything that would cause the redirect

Hi,

First of all edit your vsadmin/includes.php file and remove the following lines below

$notifyloginattempt=TRUE;
$disallowlogin=TRUE;

or just comment them out like this
//$notifyloginattempt=TRUE;
//$disallowlogin=TRUE;

Then make sure you can login here - https://www.tavistockbutchers.co.uk/vsadmin/login.php

Then for security add the following line to your vsadmin/includes.php

$loginkey="myloginkey";

change myloginkey to anything you like really, so if you set it to yournewkey

Then browse to https://www.tavistockbutchers.co.uk/vsadmin/login.php?loginkey=yournewkey

You can then delete the renamed folder because the vsadmin is now secure and cannot be browsed to without knowing the key

These parameters are not in vsadmin/includes.php (or xxxvsadmin/includes.php)

$notifyloginattempt=TRUE;
$disallowlogin=TRUE;

That's strange

Can you click on my name and send me ftp details so I can see what's going on?

Or just email them over to phil at bettapages dot com
