Error after importing database in new hosting

Post by Khoala » Sat Apr 30, 2011 2:46 am

Hello,

I just moved to a new hosting and after a while trying to import the database. I'm getting the following "General Error":

Could not get style data

Any ideas?

I'm missing some files? should I re-export/import the whole database? Or I'm missing a configuration step?

Thanks in advance,

Just to mention that I can access the forum as a localhost, that means in my personal computer where I use to work before uploading to the host. So I suppose that everything is alright and I'm missing something by the hosting side.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

I'm sorry for keep posting after my posts... but I just want to say that I re-uploaded the while forum directory and now I gained access but it's all messed up. I mean the appearance, it's like no background, no colors, and things all over the page, like no .CSS file.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks,

You don't have to, if you have more information to add and there have been no replies add it to your original post.

Try deleting everything from your /cache folder EXCEPT for index.htm and .htaccess.

I did it and now I get a ./cache/ is NOT writable.

I just noticed that the whole forum directory is a read-only folder. Should I change it to writable? or just the cache folder?

Thank you

Update: My local cache folder has the same permissions but I still can access and "write" on it after deleting its files.

So now I don't know what is it.

Also when I tried to access again today I got the Could not get style data error... then I deleted the files from the cache folder as you suggested and now it says that "./cache/ is not writable".
