Forum attachments lost since migration


Ever since our website was migrated we seem to have lost the ability at add or access attachments. Also themes do not seem to be accessible. I suspect we have lost the link to a vital database but have no joy in requesting help with this.

Have you run repair_settings.php to make sure your paths are correct.

What is repair_settings.php?

Also if you are running 1.1 then it's recommended that you upgrade to 2.0 as soon as possible since 1.1 has been declared end of life and wont get anymore patches.

Additionally, make certain that the attachments were transferred using BINARY mode from host to host... if you used FTP and accidentally allowed a transfer (to or from) using ASCII, then, even if you restore access to the correct directory, none of your existing attachments will be useable
