Avatar and attachement: plz help

  • the importer didnot import avatars and attachements, i have manually uploaded them to the new server and retored wcf_attachement and wcf_avatar from the old database however still not showing
    how can i fix this???

  • What software did you import? you have to make sure, the source folder is accessable throught the server's filesystem.

  • i imported wbb v3
    lets say importing avatars and attachements failed
    is there any way to fix it now?
    I have been going through database tables to find out what the structure is and fix it but its taking a very long time

  • I'd say the best way would be to import it once again. And this time with avatars and attachments.


    What do you mean exactly by "it failed"? DId you get any error messages? But you are certain, you marked the checkboxes to import avatars and attachments and you are certain that you did provide the right source folder?


    Whats the path on the server's hard disk to your old forum (the forum you want to import)?
    Whats the path on the server's hard disk to your new forum?

  • thats the importer code, i re-applied it manually but still no avatars!

  • path on both servers is:
    /home/tunitech/public_html/forum/wcf/
    and ofcourse i did check all options


    Ah, that can't be right. Or did you install both forums in the same WCF. ?(

  • no, they are on different servers,

    Well, then you entered the wrong path.
    An import over different servers is not possible in most cases.

  • If both boards are on different servers, you have to copy one forum to the other server so that both forums are on the same server.
