Uploading Files Through CMS After Moving To New Host

Jul 18, 2009

Hi guys, I've been having problems trying to edit my php.ini file which I think I've now fixed.

The whole reason I wanted to do this was because I've just moved to Media Temple from another hosting company and I'm having a couple of problems with the switchover.

Basically I use a CMS system to add properties which appear on the main website. I also upload PDFs and images. On the old hosting company, the PDFs and images went into folders called dnDir/pdf and dnDir/images but on Media Temple, they are going in to a folder called tmp. I really want them to go to the same place as they used to.

Is this an issue with php.ini that I need to rectify? If so, could you point me in the right direction?

Uploading Files

Jan 28, 2009

I've just uploaded my website files onto the server, the website is working fine, but I'm not sure my files are 'arranged' right. I uploaded my images in a folder, but all the rest of the files are 'loose' along with the index file. If I go to either of my domain names, the website appears, which is ok for now, but I only really intended it to under one domain name, so there may be problems if I want another site up there. I think my files should be in a folder. Is this right? Should the index file be in the same folder, or should it be outside the folder with the links changed accordingly. I've been emailing my hosting service, and they 've been trying to help, but I feel a bit thick because I don't really understand what they're saying. Could someone tell me in very plain english how the files should be arranged?

Why is it that you can upload large file size when you are using FTP, but you cant upload large file size beyond the max when you are using browser to upload?

Prevent PHP Files Used For File Uploading

Jul 3, 2009

It appears that some people like to take advantage of those files for online web applications such as Wordpress which have php files with permissions set to 777. They use those as a means of creating an upload file. The upload files that they create then have access to the whole server somehow... Is there anyway of preventing this from happening?

FTP Timing Out When Uploading Small Files

Jul 20, 2009

There is a behavour with my server FTP when uploading a whole directory with many files in many sub-directories

Very often, the server disconnect itself when actively uploading files and the log simply says 'timeout'

It is as if the file got 'stuck' half way, and the FTP consider them as idle, therefore it disconnect you with a 'timeout' before reconnecting you.

But i have no problem uploading a single 200mb file to the server via FTP. I suppose no problem with 'keep alive'

So what is this behavior and how to solve it?

FTP :: Stop Uploading Large Files

Jul 17, 2008

I'm facing a very strange FTP issue with one of my shared-hosting accounts, while all of my other servers are having no problems but only this one, when I try to upload a file (whatever file) larger than 500kb from my local PCs, in most cases, the file would stop uploading during the process and hang there until it times out.

There are 2 interesting things though:
The file transmission typically hangs when approximately 248kb of the file have been transferred, pls see the attached screenshot for example.

If you look at the attached screenshot, you will notice that the uploading transmission hangs when 248kb of the file have been transferred. This is very strange and what I mean is that for example, I randomly pick up a file, and attempt to upload it onto my host for 10 times, now see, 5 times it will hang when 248kb of the total size have been transferred, 3 times it will hang at other points *near* 248kb (224kb or 280kb typically), 1 time it will hang at another random point, and 1 time it might be uploaded successfully (yes, there is still a tiny chance for the file to be uploaded successfully).

My default internet uploading speed is 80kb/s-100kb/s, lately I found that, when I limit the uploading speed on my FTP client (e.g. max. 30kb/s), everything WILL WORK without any problem! No hangs, no interrupt.. Whereas when I free up the uploading speed limitation and let it upload with my regular speed, the problem appears again.

It seems to me that the FTP hangs only when the uploading speed is higher than 60kb/s. However my host provider told me that they have customers uploading without any problem at over 400kb/s, and they said "there's no problem or limitations on the server at all".

Up until now, I have done following things to troubleshoot the issue but with no luck:

Contacted my host.
Disabled/Enabled the PASV mode on my FTP client.
Tried different FTP clients on different computers (FlashFXP and Filezilla).
Rebooted my router and reseted everything with the factory default settings.
Contacted my ISP for the issue, they "did something" but nothing were helpful.
Rebooted all my PCs.
Disabled both firewalls on my PC and on the router.

Furthermore, I have asked another friend of mine in another city with another ISP to test the FTP uploading, but unfortunately he got the exact same problem. And I've done some search on the internet for hours but no one seemed to have the same problem..

People Uploading Much Bigger Files To My Server, That I Want (using Php)

May 13, 2007

i have free hosting server and a rule to upload 3MB file max. it works for FTP, but somehow it doesn't work for php. It seems for php the limit on my server is 100MB (no idea why)

i use following directives to limit file size in php.ini :

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
post_max_size = 4M

(4 just for some margin )

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 3M

and i still can find 100MB files on disk. this is part of log file from apache from the account that uploaded it to me:

boorako.[] someip - - [13/May/2007:12:21:22 +0200]
"POST /a/redir.php?capthatag=accesscode&saveto=&path=/some/path/boorako.[]/a&comment=&domail=&email=&useproxy=
HTTP/1.1" 302 188

boorako.[] someip - - [13/May/2007:12:21:35 +0200]
"POST /a/redir.php?capthatag=accesscode&saveto=&path=/some/path/boorako.[]/a&comment=

HTTP/1.1" 302 188 [url]
"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; pl; rv: Gecko/20070309 Firefox/"

as the effect of this (at least i think so), there was 100MB file in his home dir.

any idea how can he POST such big files even with those two directives?

i have also set LimitRequestBody to 5194304 and LimitXMLRequestBody to 5194304 in apache2.conf which also should stop files being POSTED as big as 100MB.

i have php 4.4.4-9, Linux Debian, apache 2.2.3 working in worker mpm, and php as fastcgi.

P.S. i removed server info like IP, dir and address to not show specifics about my server in public, i put [] there.

Jun 27, 2008

to upload some flash videos over to our web host.

All the videos have been uploaded to << link removed >> and in there you will seea flash_video directory, in there should be a html file where you can double click and watch the flash video.

Now go ahead and try it, click on the HTML file and click CONTINUE and try clicking on MODULE 1.. You will see a video play to the left but on the right are bunch of POWERPOINT slides that will appear as the guy continues to speak. THAT DOESNT SHOW..

Our website is hosted by xo.com

But here is the weird part,

i have uploaded the samething - same exact way to another web host and it plays fine, the PPTs show up fine..

What do you guys think it is?

Before someone asks about uploading methods, i tried filezilla, coreftp and cuteFTP using both ASCII and binary methods. Samething..

Moving Files From One Hosting To Another

Aug 7, 2008

I'm trying to migrate my vps to another server, and basically I need to move the entire public_html directory from first server to the second. As its almost 2.5 gb, downloading and ftping isn't really an option, so I'm thinking i need to tar and then gzip it, and then somehow transfer it diectly.

so my question is what is the proper command to use for tar and gzip in this case? and what method to transfer. should i use wget or is there a better way. Once i have it on my destination server how do i untar it, and what path will it untar to?

Moving Host As A Reseller

Sep 17, 2008

I bought a reseller account because i had a dozen or so sites and could save money etc taking charge of them. I bought a reseller account. After a while with my hosting company I am unhappy with the uptime so I have set up another reseller account with hostgator.

I now need to move all my sites over.

I understand what I need to do is;

(these are simple, non database, non wordpress sites btw)

Make a backup of site
Put backup of site on new reseller account
repoint dns for site on old reseller account to new reseller account
job done!

I have backed up my site and now want to upload it to my new location. I have setup the domain account in my reseller control panel.

My problem is how/where do i upload these files to? I think I need a direct IP address as if i ftp to ftp.sitename.com that onviously sends me to the reseller account i am trying to leave.

I know my reseller ip address, but how does that relate to the sites i am going to host...?

Moving Forum To New Host

Jan 17, 2007

I'm trying to figure out the best way to eliminate downtime when I move my forum to a new host.

I have never had to move a site before so I don't know what's going to happen? How long does it take for the DNS changes to update? I don't want people to type in the forum's url and not be able to get the site?

I should add that I am switching from phpbb to vBulletin and have the new software sitting on the .org name of the forum at the new host. Should I just tell people if they have a problem the day after I make the switch to go to the .org as a default?

Moving Large Sites From One Host To Another

Oct 4, 2008

I have to move some large websites from one host to another. The websites contain data about 1 - 3 GB, and my internet connection here is not that fast, so that downloading and uploading would take many hours. Unfortunately I have no SSH-Access to both accounts (old and new one), so I have to make it by FTP.

So I tried to make a tar file and moved it from the old to the new host. I made a tar archive of the whole webfolder (I used php to execute the shell commmands) and moved it by ftp to the new host. But now Ive got troubles when extracting the archive on the new host: the extracted files are obviously created by the wrong user, so I cant delete or access them by ftp.

So Im trying to find other solutions to fix these problems. Maybe someone else had the same problems and could give me advice how to move large sites? Or do you know php-applications that can directly connect one host accout to another via ftp?

Moving Reseller Acount To New Host - Want To Keep Email

Jul 16, 2009

We currently use a hosting company in the UK to host about 13 of our clients websites. The domains have been registered with many different companies to complicate things even more!

We do not host their email. The clients look after their email themselves but obviously use the same domain as the website in their email addresses.

We would now like to move these websites to a new hosting company which I have already set up. I've uploaded all the files and databases so all that's in place and seems to be working well.

Now the complicated part (for me anyway)!

I'm not sure what I need to do in order to change where the site is hosted from and NOT change anything about the clients email settings. I believe I do not need to change the DNS settings as this may disrupt the email settings which I don't want. Do I need to change only the IP address to the new server?

My new hosting plan is on a Virtual dedicated server if that's important.

Moving MultiAccounts To New Host HowTo Request

May 8, 2007

I know Cpanel has some features to do this unfortunately i have a private lable Pannel
that is why I want to move to a host that can allow me to move all my customers in and out as fast as I need to. There are many reasons to leave or find different hosting
that is not the question the question is how to do this without having your customers
go crazy or if posible to do it without them even noticing more then a short period of downtime late at night.

Please offer any opinions or directions on Pannel choice and methods to make the move seamless.

Mistakes are also very interesting And although we all know every hosting company is willing to help us do this and they are all nice guys it is important that things like this can be done fast and also without need for outside tech support All things are important like checking php versions and perl moduals and apache, mysql, phpMyadmin versions.. is setting up a dns3. and dns4. and asking customers to use that important for fast migration?

Transfer Files To A New Host

Mar 3, 2008

I'm in the process of switching to a new host for my websites. My old host is Servage and my new host is Dreamhost.

I'm looking for a way to directly transfer all my files from Servage to Dreamhost (i.e. don't transfer them via my PC).

Whilst Dreamhost offers a whole suite of access to their servers, Servage only offers FTP (no SFTP, no SCP, no SSH, no RSYNC). Servage also don't give any ability to create a tar.gz of my files (I tried to use a Perl script to execute a shell command to tar my files, but it didn't work )

So currently the only way I can see to get the files across to Dreamhost is to use the ftp command (via SSH on Dreamhost), but this command is severely limiting because mget can't transfer directories - it can only transfer files in a directory.

Can anyone see an easy way for me to get all files across to my new host?
