DMS WordPress Migration

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how many people have moved after installing DMS? I prepared a site to migrate and placed everything on the new server. I have changed the wordpress data base prefixes for security and imported the sql.

I changed the site temporarily to the IP address so it won't redirect to the old site while i configure the new one. This way when the Nameservers direct to the new location there is less configuration.

IS THERE A PLACE IN THE THEME THAT I NEED TO CHANGE ANY CODE SO THAT I CAN STILL CONFIGURE?
Evidently, everything else is running fine except for the DMS interface.

Did I miss something or is this a glitch?

Any feedback would be helpful.

It may all just work fine once the nameservers switch but i wanted to make progress like i have done with other themes.
Thank you! <3

Hi,

 

I apologise, but I am not sure what you're trying to do. The simplest way to migrate is to create your new design away from your live site such as Locally. When your site design in DMS has been completed, you can export these settings and import them into your live site.

 

We have migration documentation here - http://docs.pagelines.com/getting-started/upgrading-migration

No worries Danny.

You completely misunderstood what I was saying based on the advice you gave me. So I must look at it as i was not communicating clearly enough. I got everything moved. Thank you for your effort. As all of us constantly asking questions must be challenging. So I give gratitude.
Be well.

Hi Khepri,

 

The question that is confusing is:

IS THERE A PLACE IN THE THEME THAT I NEED TO CHANGE ANY CODE SO THAT I CAN STILL CONFIGURE?

 

We're confused by the phrase "any code" and "can still configure".  To be specific, what kind of code did you mean or think about, and configure what to do what?  Our apologies, but the question is so vague that it's hard to understand.

 

While DMS stores settings to the database, it's important to follow the migration docs Danny provided.  This ensures that the settings are applied correctly inside your migrated version.

 

It's also important, when migrating, to go to Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks and without changing anything, just save the settings.  This updates permalinks so that any dynamic links are corrected.  Sometimes, without this process, links can become broken (often showing 404 errors).

Yes when you relocate wordpress there is a place in the settings and a place in the database that one must change to have a functioning Wordpress site.

Given that DMS gives you a "front end" to work with, I figure that there MAY BE another location that must be changed in either the wordpress settings or the phpmyadmin settings to make the front end dashboard of DMS come up.

But this solved when the address resolved. I was simply trying to work on the site by using the IP address that one might use when editing locally.

Sorry for the confusion.

LOL, Permalinks. Thanks but that truly is NUBIE territory. That is definitely never my issue. Whenever anything goes wrong I always change permalink structure a couple of times and start deactivating plug ins.
 

Thanks guys. I don't know how you do it with all these people. <3

I most definitely misunderstood what you were saying. If you're moving from one server to another, you should follow the correct procedure provided by Wordpress - http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

 

If you follow these instructions, then there really shouldn't be any issue. However, as I mentioned above, exporting/importing your WP content, theme settings to a fresh install of Wordpress on another server is the a simple task, no that doesn't require changing IP or nameservers.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
