Upgrading respect. new gallery question
« on: January 15, 2008, 08:51:47 PM »
Over the years my gallery has got a bit messed up and I would like to clean up.

Would this work:

installing a clean version of the newest version of 4homepages in a new folder
uploading the backup of the gallery
uploading the actual images and thumbnails (does the backup create the directories too?)
installing a template and if necessary some mods

or alternatively:
renaming the data directory (images and thumbnails)
deleting everything else
uploading the newest version of 4images
removing the new data directory and renmaing the old one to data again
restoring the database from the backup

Since I have many directories and images, creating them manually would take ages.
My fear is that restoring the db wouldn't work or the folders will not be integrated etc. in which case I will have to start with a compelte new gallery and do everything again especially creating folders in the cp and uploading images, not to mention that keywords etc. will be lost as well.
