Archived ⇒ Looking to convert from phpnuke


Hello I am the owner of AstrosWorld.com. We are currently running off phpnuke right now and I'm looking to change to DragonFly because of the much better support.

First off, convertor? Do I need one?

Secondly, as I said earlier, I'm a total noob. Is anyone willing to sit down with me and give me a walk through on how to set up Dragonfly for my site? Via AIM, YIM, MSN...any messenger you have will work.


Thanks.

First you would need to provide your server specs (enter through your profile) so people have some idea of what you are working with.

Dragonfly does the conversion quite well, though success depends on the degree of customization and your phpnuke version.

Hey Phoenix, thanks for the quick response. As I said earlier, this is my first site! I'm not real sure how to find my "server specs". Where can I find this?

In Dragonfly it's easy - for phpnuke not so - you should find most of what you need in your webhost CPanel.

That is all my information.

So you have,
Unix / 1.3.34 / 5.0.19 / 4.4.2
And your phpnuke version is?
You can update these values into your profile.

Ignoring your nuke version for now, the first issue will be that Dragonfly 9.0.6.1, the current stable release, is not quite MySQL5 ready, so there may be some install issues.

Dragonfly CVS (9.1.0.8) is MySQL5 ready but CVS is a "use at own risk" situation, though quite a number of us run current CVS on production sites and find it is stable.

You would be best testing either version by generating a duplicate of your database, copying your website to a subdirectory, then doing a test install from that subdirectory, using the duplicate database.

This keeps your main site secure while you resolve any potential install issues, and is recommended.

I did a search in the downloads for "Dragonfly CVS (9.1.0.8)" and didn't get any results. Where can I find this Phoenix?
