Moving a working server.. Help

Hi all.

I have been using Vanilla for a while now but needed to move it to another server.

I did the following:

exported and imported my dbase
copied var/www/vanilla from one machine to the new one (used both archived and SSH to keep permissions)



Fatal error: Class 'VanillaModel' not found in /var/www/vanilla/plugins/FileUpload/class.mediamodel.php on line 11

I deleted FileUpload, dont know why. It was the only error after all. But...

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/var/www/vanilla/applications/controllers/class.controller.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /var/www/vanilla/library/core/class.dispatcher.php on line 531

Can anyone help me get my forum back up and running. I'd be most grateful for any help

Del Jones

    After you have moved your files to the new server you need to delete cache/*.ini files let's see if that works for you.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Have you moved the .htaccess file too?
