I moved 2 oxwall sites to new host

1 site works perfect the 2nd site is blank, files & db are there but no site.

I followed these instructions, what should I trouble shoot ?


define('OW_URL_HOME', 'http://ow/'); //new site URL define('OW_DB_HOST', 'localhost'); //new database host define('OW_DB_PORT', null); //new database port define('OW_DB_USER', 'root'); //new database user define('OW_DB_PASSWORD', '1234'); //new database password define('OW_DB_NAME', 'ow'); //new database name

Steve, the blank page means that there is an error, most probably fatal error. Please make sure that the error_reporting is enabled on your server and the display_error directive is on. Also, check  the error_log file (usually this file locates in the directory where your site is installed) and ow_log/error.log file.

Finally, try to clear the compiled resources by enabling the DEV_MODE (https://docs.oxwall.org/plugin-tuts:enable-debug)

If these solutions doesn't help, try to check if the directory your software was placed is correct:
- Upload the test file. For ex: test.txt
- Rename .htaccess file. For ex: 1htaccess
- Try opening the test file through browser: http://yoursitedomain.com/test.txt

If the directory is correct (connected to the domain), the file should open.

I tried dev_mode but no luck still blank, it doesn't seem to be connecting to database.

Hello Steve,

Your .htaccess file and php.ini file had some entries in it that were specific to your old host.

I've removed the custom php.ini file and have put a default oxwall .htaccess file in place.

Let me know if you need anything else,

Have a most Awesome Day!

when you go to website.com/photo/viewlist/latest the photo preview pic is missing but when you double click where it should be it takes you to the photo ?

Steve, first of all one issue per topic, next time, please create a separate topic with separate issues. 

As to the issue with the photo priview: website.com/photo/viewlist/latest Please enable dev mode and refresh the website couple of times, then disable dev mode back. Clear browser cache . See if the issue persists.
