Moving Servers
Hi All,

We are still using Links 2.0 and it is fine for our needs. Unfortunately we can't afford the upgrade to Links.

We are now in the process of changing hosting companies and need to move Links 2.0 to a new server. I did a search on the forum and while there are many referenced postings about moving, I didn't find specific instructions.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

It should be pretty simple =)

1) Download all the files in your /cgi-bin (or /cgi-bin/links, whereever you have it)
2) Download all the stuff in the static folders (depends where you have it build)
3) Reupload everything to their respective places on the new server
4) Open /admin/links.cfg, and update ther paths to your new setup
5) CHMOD all the .cgi script to 755, and all other files to 666

Then, test it - and it should work =)

Hope that helps.
