Solved: 9 Years, 2 Weeks ago Server Migration
#1
Solved: 9 Years, 2 Weeks ago
I'm currently migrating to another server.

I already have all of my old MyBB files from my previous machine and the database has been imported.

However, if I go to my forum directory, I get a white screen. I assumed that I still needed to install, so I went to forums/install (using the proper web address, of course), but was still given a white screen.

Help?

you do not have to re-install MyBB. see below guides

Suppose the original host is unavailable and I can't open the admin controls from it. Is there still a chance to recover?

Essentially, can I turn off those plugins by editing a file or db?

^ well, you said that backups of the files and the database are transferred - so old host controls are not required
files backup should have included the plugins and database backup should consist of their settings

In that case, I shouldn't be having an issue. I moved the files to the proper location and imported the mybb database with phpMyAdmin, but I'm still getting a white screen.

^ can you check server error log (should be available at the web host panel) and find the cause
can we have your forum URL

Ehm, I don't use a web host. I am the host. Do you know the file path of this log? (linux)
