    How do I move my site to my Hosting Service Link to this post

    I have completed all your tutorials and have built an initial site which I now want to move onto my web host. My ISP, Orcon, is providing the hosting service with PHP 5 and MySQL.

    What are the actual steps that I need to take to move my locally developed site onto the the hosting service.

    HELP PLEASE

    Thanks Will. I feel stupid but I did look externsively before asking for help. I have tried to find this document by going through the silverstripe.com website and could not find it. Putting your link in works fine but without knowing the link how would I find the file?

    Currently the .org search does not search the wiki / docs etc. http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php is a completely separate site. It should be listed on that page and should be able to search for it via that page eg under 'publishing'

    I have looked on the doku.php site and I can't find any mention of the publishing to web server document although I could find it using the search facility. It seems a sufficiently important document that it should be directly referenced. If it is and I have missed it I apologise.

    Having now followed your instructions I have got as far as generating error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) when I enter www.ashwell.biz/install.php into IE 7. Is this a common problem and do you have any standard suggestions for what to do next.

    Thanks

    You don't even had access to view http://www.ashwell.biz/? I don't think this is a silverstripe issue. Try create an index.html file with just some test text and see if you can view http://www.ashwell.biz/index.html

    ****FIXED****
    You were right Will Orcon had to adjust their permissions. That has now been done and I have been able to start the install process. The install has produced the following error.

    Building database schema...
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ')' in /www/virtual/ashwell.biz/htdocs/auth_openid/code/OpenIDAuthenticator.php on line 176

    Is this a familiar error and what should I do?

    I have already populated the database on the host server by doing an export and import using phpmyadmin. Will this cause any problems?

    Thanks

    Most likely unconnected, but when moving from my local host I had capitalisation issues in my database (due to a change from windows-linux). Also might want to try
    <?php
    phpinfo( );
    ?>
    just to ensure it really is php5 thats running
