To move Photo Cart to a new server you will need to:

1) Download your entire Photo Cart folder from your current hosting to your computer.
2) Re-upload the folder you downloaded it to your new hosting.
* 3) The database will need to be exported from your old hosting. You will need to use PHPMyAdmin and export your database as a SQL file.
* 4) Create a new database in your new hosting control panel. Import the SQL file to the new database through PHPMyAdmin.
5) Edit the setup.php file with the new database names and settings.

* The database is NOT located where all your files and folders are. You will need to log into your hosting control panel and access the PHPMyAdmin to export your database.

Here is a tutorial on how to export your database from the old host and import it into the new and editing the configuration file.

There is a database transfer service available where we can export your existing database and import it into your new database. We do not offer a service to move files & folders.

HI TIm, I just moved my website to a new host and did what you said above but now it won't let me in. The username and password I am using are correct as I just reset to make sure. Is there something else I am missing? Thanks
Natalie

Hi Tim, thank for the info!

I recently moved to a new host and transferred Photo Cart to the new server. I've followed the steps you listed, but I'm getting the following screen when I visit the page:

My only guess is that the database settings are wrong in the setup.php file, but I thought I followed the instructions in the guide. Here are the lines in setup.php I changed, excluding the username and password:

$setup['photo_cart_folder'] = ??;//?galleries?;

/* DATABASE SETTINGS */
$setup['pc_db_location'] = "mysql.davidlindner.com"; // database hostname or location
$setup['pc_db'] = "galldavi_photokart"; // The name of the database

Should ??;//?galleries?; be the name of the folder on the server that all the PhotoCart files are in? Not sure what is wrong!

Thanks!

You are trying to setup Photo Cart as a subdomain. I find that when I go to galleries.davidlinder.com that I get redirected to davidlinder.com so there is no way to get to the subdomain.

I suspect you may also need to change $setup["url"] and $setup["secure_url"] to work with your subdomain.

Thank you Dave! It says the lines do not need to be changed, normally. Any idea what to change it to?

No change is needed as your setup.php is one of the newer format ones.

However, since I still get redirected on your site when I try to go to galleries.davidlinder.com there is no way I can see what you are seeing. Are you running WordPress? It often redirects anything unexpected to the main site URL. When I go to galleries.davidlinder.com, it gets a permanent redirect to davidlinder.com. Here are the response headers.
