Really messed up...

Hi,

I have been having problems with the move to another ISP. The structure of the website on the new ISP is at a different level to that on my local pc and the navigation doesn't work. The database I thought I had exported from my previous ISP did not export the actual data and has now been lost. Is there anyway that the new website can be fixed or do I have to start anew?

Regards

Re: Really messed up...

other than images and files uploaded by users, the content is stored in the database so if you really lost that you might as well start over.

If you don't have knowledge and experience with databases and if your site is likely to have limited traffic or for just experimental sites, you might be better off using our mojoPortal package for SQL CE (Sql Sever Compact Edition). SQL CE is not as robust as a real database platform like MS SQL but it can be much easier to work with because there is no separate database software to install and the database is just a file on disk that you can easily backup or move from one place to another. However, the mojoPortal Web Store feature is not included or supported with SQL CE, so if that feature is important to you then you should use MS SQL.

Re: Really messed up...

I still have the website on my local pc. It is just that the website sits under wwwroot in a separate folder, whereas the ISP expects the website to be at the top level. It isn't a complicated website, but it has 2 years of calendar events and news items. I do understand MSSQL and can extract the contents and make changes to the tables, it's just I'm not an expert. I know enough to find my way around. If I need to know, then I can look it up. Is there some way I can use the local database to update the hosted website?

Regards
