How do I upgrade MySQL to MySLQi?

TheBottomFW 7 years ago in Server / Server Usage 0
Our domain thebottomfw.com has recently been redesigned and has been in working order on a development server. After transferring the files and setting up the database many extensions are giving an error that the MySQL is required to be upgraded to MySQLi. After searching Google in reference to this problem on InMotion Hosting servers there was a response by your team in a thread (seen below) to contact support to have the website moved to an appropriate server. Please let us know how we can proceed and what other information you need in order to enable this function.

The website is running Joomla 2.5


Sending forms with SMTP

Nima_Tisdall 7 years ago in Server / General Server Setup 0
I have created a form in html which sends information to my e-mail through pHp. However, as the mail() command does not work on inMotion I have to use SMTP. How do I merge the two scripts of the SMTP and php?

Configure Apache to redirect to domain:port

wasted7 7 years ago in Server / General Server Setup 0
I've set up a CNAME to redirect to another domain but as we all know we cannot specify ports in the DNS editor.

I've read that its easy enough to configure the Apache web server with a reverse proxy to direct content from thatdomain.com:100 when someone requests 123.thisdomain.com

Does anyone have any experience in doing this? I would like to know how to do it on my VPS because I have many uses for getting this done.

Thanks for your time and help.

EDIT: This appears to be the solution, but I am a bit unsure on how to implement these settings: http://serverfault.com/questions/85078/how-to-forward-dns-alias-to-hostnameport

Best way to take my test website live?

MyaMoe 7 years ago in Server / General Server Setup 0
I have a live website (www.myamoeukuleles.com) and have been developing a new version, using a subdomain (www.test.myamoeukuleles.com).

What is the best way to transfer the entire "test" into my live site (and delete the entire live site)?

I know I can go into "file manager" and compress the test site, and then extract it into the live site--is that the best way to do it?

I don't want any of my other stuff (email forwarders; SQL databases) to be changed at all.
