Question: Moving From One Server to A New Server

Moving Active Classifieds

To move the Active Classifieds System from one server to a new server, you must first install the program from a new installation on the new server. Once the new installation is complete, you can then begin the process of moving files from your old site to the new site. Move all files listed below to the new server.

Files In The cgi-bin/suite Folder Files To Move
classifieds/websites/default/data All files. Do not move the files in the "backup" folder.
classifieds/websites/default/data/hits All files. You must manually set all file permissions to 777 on the files in this folder.
classifieds/websites/default/variables All files except the system.pl file. Do not move the files located in the "backup" folder.
classifieds/banners All files and folders. Do not move files located in the "backup" folders. You must manually set the file permissions to 777 on all files and folders in this directory.
classifieds/common All files. Do not move files in the "backup" folder.
classifieds/users Only the user_data.pl file and the users.count file must be moved.
classifieds/subscribers Move all files. Do not move the files located in the "backup" folder.
Files in the www/suite folder Files To Move
classifieds/default/pictures All files. You must then manually set the file permissions to 777 on all files moved.

Once you have moved all your files from one server to another, then you must login to your admin program. Go to the "User Administration" area and choose the option to "Recreate All User Profiles". If you were using "Static HTML" pages, you need to also go into the "Ads Administration" area and select the option to "Recreate Static HTML".
