  1. Thank you Dick for your explanation to pensandbeetles as I also look toward doing the same. One step (a big, multi-step) I don't see you suggest is after using Softaculous or similar to create a new WP site the copying of the relevant pages from the old site into the newly installed WP. Would that be "nearly" as simple as that sounds? Or is there another technique to get the old pages into the new site? edit = typo
  2. Using cPanel > phpMyAdmin to list databases and then tables of one specific database - it is listed as a database but it contains no tables. Why? The website displays with Twentytwevle-child theme (no alterations as yet). WordPress 4.6.1 admin dashboard sees everything it should and is able to edit as per normal. Why is the database empty? Thank you.
  3. Thanks Bruce that sounds helpful. Also, thanks Asher for the asking, I may be in a position to do similar. Is it correct then that one creates an empty database? Then backs up the existing/working SQL database into a folder (home directory)? Then asks for the Help Desk to load the backup into the new empty database? Then create a subdomain and user to use the new database? Somewhere here ask Softaculous to load Wordpress into the subdomain. That will give a working copy of the existing website? Or is there something else I fail to see? Thanks! Phil
  4. We have been showered, or sprinkled, with articles Re: the new ICANN TLD .scot. This should prove popular here in Scotland - to me for one user. Is it known when and if TCH will offer this - and are any details known? Thanks.
  5. Been happily running WP for awhile but was happy to leave the version sitting on 2.8.4. Noting the upgrades over the intervening period I always hesitated - BUT it all seems to work, so I never did upgrade. The question is will I experience a mess if I attempt to go from 2.8.4 to 3.3 all in one jump? Is it right that the cPanel, Backup should be used to backup, locally, the entire public_html folder; then the SQL database; then any odds like forwarders. I'm not sure if it is the whole root that is backed up or just the public_html folder. Is it likely that this backup will restore out of any mess which might occur? Thanks very much. Hope you all are experiencing a peaceful festive season.
  6. Thank you - the referred link is very helpful.

    Suphp ?

    Looking at WordPress upgrading recommendations I see this suPHP thing mentioned - is it mandatory or just a like-to-have? Thank you. Phil
  8. Same "(using password: YES)" error with Fantastico. Same solution, raise a ticket. Same result in 15 minutes - it all works fine. Thank you.
  9. Same original 500 Internal Server Error problem occurred today. After reading here I raised a ticket. The response was prompt. The site is accessible again. Thanks TCH.
  10. My WP 2.8.4 is getting further out of date - it still works very well - so I wonder if the offered automatic upgrade to WP 3.0.1 will run without hitch. I have regular manual backups of the WP files and the database and the forwarders, but have never tried to re-construct the site, so I am not on sure ground as to disaster recovery. The query is - is the upgrade worth it? Thank you.
  11. A good few of us watching to see if 2.9 is worth it. 2.8.4 here and all is well.
  12. Phew! Thanks SteveW. What you say makes sense. Now, does that fit with the transfer I envisage?
  13. I have read (elsewhere) incomplete comments about using cPanel to migrate (WordPress in this case) from one server to another, and where, as on TCH, both source and destination are accessed by cPanel how this is done in one move. Does anyone know how to accomplish this? Thanks, and pardon if I failed to find this in my searches.
  14. Many thanks Dick. I asked out of bewilderment. I found the answer is to physically create the wp-content/uploads folder which wp has as the default upload location and which captcha uses. Once that folder exists (with permission 777) all works well.
  15. An old issue sorted I know but I am being advised by the install guide to ensure GD and Freetype are available on the server. Why? I am installing really-simple-captcha to work with contact-form-7 within WordPress. I cannot get the character image to display. Are these libraries available? I'm on arlington, it says. Thanks.
  16. This is the .htaccess which may NOT have started the catlogue of calamity but did not help. Can't be certain. Others claimed it solved their problems, which sounded lots like my problems. # in response to internal server error 500 # obtained 15/04/2009 # from http://www.designforunity.com/archives/425...ge-1#comment-78 <files .htaccess> order allow,deny deny from all </files> ServerSignature Off <files wp-config.php> order allow,deny deny from all </files> # BEGIN WordPress <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L] </IfModule> # END WordPress Options All -Indexes AddType x-mapp-php5 .php AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php
  17. Thanks Bruce and Thomas - quick as usual. In fact the blog/site was not working. The default front page was showing and nothing else. And in the WP Dashboard several screens were hashed. Hours of fiddling ended with a complete delete, emptying of the database, new download of the WP ZIP, new upload, new vanilla .htaccess, ensuring wp-config.php was as should be, new install, and success - so far. I believe the initial problem stemmed from a snazy .htaccess as suggested on a WP forum. I'll leave it alone next time.
  18. This: Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@adcc.oldtownardgay.info and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log. Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Apache/2.0.63 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.63 OpenSSL/0.9.8b mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ Server at adcc.oldtownardgay.info Port 80 has started showing up in the past three days. Looking round the WP forums shows plenty of occurrences of the error revolving around two or three common problems, all solved by tweaking WP files. I have failed to find success. Is it possible that I have a server problem? Could I have exceeded my account limits somewhere? I've got 6 subdomains and 6 SQL databases. Only the last one installed gives this problem. Lost & confused!
