Migrating to new server

Jerry Green

I have been using Geeklog for 20 years on my website, historyandnews.co.uk, and I kept it updated to version 2.0.0 but I have now been retired 15 years and my brain doesn't seem to work as well as it did 20 years ago. My hosting provider is moving my installation to a new server and some problems have occurred. With root debugging on I get the following[
An error has occurred:
This is being displayed as "Root Debugging" is enabled in your Geeklog configuration.
If this is a production website you must disable this option once you have resolved any issues you are investigating.

2 - require_once(english.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory @ /home/sites/7b/7/7e07a92d0f/public_html/lib-common.php line 418

2 require_once /home/sites/7b/7/7e07a92d0f/public_html/index.php 35
Can anyone tell me, in very simple terms, what I need to do to fix these problems?

It could be several things. If the server is not an exact mirror and the folder names are different, etc.. then you should run the Geeklog Migration which is found in the install.

Your error indicates files are not found so this most likely is the issue.

You will have to download the install again (for your EXACT version of Geeklog) and put the install folder from the zip file (located in the admin folder) into the Geeklog website Admin folder.

Geeklog v2.0.0

You also need to make sure you are using PHP 5 as Geeklog 2.0 is about 10 years old now and wouldn't support PHP 7 or 8. Ideally you should probably update your current Geeklog install to the latest version which is Geeklog 2.2.2. There have been a lot of changes since then and security fixes.
