Help on Migration of Webhost/Domain
« on: September 29, 2009, 19:24:01 pm »
Hi Guys,

After several weeks of reading the forums, I've decided to join it.
Am pretty new to Joomla and Virtuemart so I'll really appreciate anybody's help here.

I've recently migrated a site I've helped my dad out(decameraconsultant.com) to a new webhost.
Initially his website was hosted in whatthestigma.com/web.
What happen was, whatthestigma.com is hosted under ipower and I've migrated solely decameraconsultant.com to a new webhost.
After the migration, I changed the secureurl and the url but the image thumbnails for the store still seems to be loading from whatthestigma.com/web.
Please see http://decameraconsultant.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=64&category_id=22&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=64
Basically if you see the first thumbnail, it's from decameraconsultant.com
However for the following thumbnails below, it's all from whatthestigma.com/web

Does anybody know how I can relink the files?
I have all the files migrated and on decameraconsultant already.
Would really appreciate any help I can get here.
Thanks Guys!

Do you have CSV improved? You can export "product files" and then do a find and replace.



what you do is copy the address of the old domain, WITH the forward slash, and replace it with NOTHING, and make it relative.

www.mywebsite.com/components/com_virtuemart/resized/mypic.jpg

So the file will end up looking like this

com_virtuemart/resized/mypic.jpg
