Hi All,

I have been really busy with a ton of work. So I haven't been a around for a bit.

Recently we needed to migrate some sites from one plesk account to another. On doing this all the SS installs broke. No changes were made other than to the IP addresses but the SS sites didn't work.

I did a fresh install to see if it was the server but they worked no worries.

Has anyone seen this before?

ok a bit more digging and I have found the problem is in the DB.

everything is fine until I bring the old db over.

Anyone have any thoughts?

ok solved it.

1. exported the remote db
2. import the sql into a local mysql install.
3. export the local db.
4. import it into the new server mysql server.

all works fine.

I have no idea what was causing the problem but there must have been some version incompatabilities.
