Trickster61 Posted November 2, 2014 Share Posted November 2, 2014 Due to constant PHP error messages, and the website constantly giving "this webpage is not available" (details on Chrome gives ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED) messages to customers and us, I've decided perhaps the best option is to do a fresh install and load on our documents and images. I've spoken to tech support from our webhost and they say its our problem. So, I can do a Full Backup, or a Partial Backup of Home Directory, MySQL Database, and/or email forwarders and filters. What is the best way to accomplish this if I do it myself? Is there something tricky I should be aware of? I've had a scour of the forums and nothing seems to exactly answer my questions. I only have one plugin/hook which disables customers on registration (as a way of checking a wholesaler's credentials before they start buying) which is easily installed. My current version of Cubecart is 5.2.13. So this is how I'm thinking it will go: 1. Full backup, followed by a Home Directory backup (this will include all images and documents I hope). 2. Manually wipe off everything in public_html. 3. Clean install of latest version. 4. Apply CC bought key registration thingy. 5. Restore Home Directory to get images and documents back on, and install my one and only plugin. 6. All problems solved and everyone is happy, especially my wife who lets me play World of Tanks for the evening as a reward. I'm open to other ideas. I've tried resolving some of the PHP errors using the forum but I'm wary of testing the patience of those willing to respond to my seemingly endless list of errors from the error log.
