Host Change Creates Problems with Paths
May 22nd, 2010 at 8:55pm
Post Tools
On previous host (e-host), these path settings worked fine:

1. /home/users/web/b1666/eh.jerryosb2/yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default.css

2. /home/users/web/b1666/eh.jerryosb2/yabbfiles

3. /home/content/j/e/r/jerryosb/html/Vinyl/cgi-bin/Forum/

New host (Go Daddy) provides this as the "Absolute Hosting Path:
/home/content/j/e/r/jerryosb/html"

The exact location of the forum files is "/html/vinyl/yabbfiles"

The new Absolute Path to Main Directory is now:
"/home/content/j/e/r/jerryosb/html/Vinyl/cgi-bin/Forum/"

So why am I getting this error message?

1. ("System Information" in Forum Layout): "Unable to open /home/content/j/e/r/jerryosb/html/vinyl/yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default.css"

Thanks for any help with this mystery!

Jerry

FYI: The exact location on their server of the yabbfiles is "/html/vinyl/yabbfiles," as an example.

Thanks for any help with this mystery!

Is this a Windows Host or a Linux Host?

Shocked

(It may be a permissions issue)

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Depending on your Server OS ... the highlighted could make a very big difference (Caps)

Thank you, Captain John! Changing all the Vs to uppercase did the trick. An easy fix, and I'm grateful for the advice.
