Blore: Guys, I’ve been running circles trying to get this plugin to save settings. I’m sure I’m just missing something simple. A second pair of eyes would really be appreciated: https://gist.github.com/mrjonleek/472b4a48c1e1a4f3e295
Degroff: This ONE time i was on my buddy’s comp
Degroff: I remoted in ssh and created it with vim heh
Degroff: I’m not late on any deadlines tho. so just personal anguish. HOWEVER i do appreciate the care and concern LindsayMac to further reitterate to myself this lesson learned 😀 😀
Doscher: Well. to fix it write your code. like fully write it out and use comments. If you’re still stuck then come back and ping me
Degroff: I’m double checking that no images have same names they are in diff folders and i should have everything ready to load in just a moment so i’m at least happy abotu that
Degroff: But yes i’m gonna come back here with gloves on if i can’t get my normal import to work
Arjune: Hmmm why would doing a var_dump on a string return results but return returns nothing
Hersey: I know its probably some type of OB
Helbing: But wait. hmm its a $_POST
Coyne: I want to configure wordpress on an existing site without taking it down, and then move it from /wp to /. what’s the easiest way to do that ie: using plugins perhaps, etc.
Mcculla: No one has an idea, or is it a dumb question?
Pardon: Kind of a ridiculous request
Nordeen: Nesoi: very easy, use the built in constants in wp-config.php
Koerper: I thought there were tools that allowed that to be done easily, without manually editing all the URLs, etc.
Nordeen: Nesoi: there are, it’s very simple.
Nordeen: Nesoi: http://dpaste.com/3V9X7GP
Nordeen: That goes in your wp-config.php just above “That’s all.”
Nordeen: Then reload the site, change the values to match the site you want to load, move the files/db to the new location, refresh the site.
Nordeen: Develop the site with relative links on top of that and no need to fix broken images, etc as well
Hurlock: What do you do to refresh the site after moving it?
Carlyle: The procedure here is a lot more involved: https://codex.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/Moving_WordPress
Kampfer: So I was hoping to find a way to avoid having to do all that
Hirons: Opsec: are you saying that all those steps in that codex page are not necessary?
Nordeen: Nesoi: that’s indeed what i’m saying.
Nordeen: Tar or zip the do***entroot, dump the database, move the files to the new host, create an empty db container, import the dump into it, edit wp-config.php, refresh site.
Mckillip: I cant get things to line up
Barlett: Opsec: you seemed to be saying that the files could just be copied over to /.
Dilleshaw: I have it what I feel is right
Stecklein: However it does not look right in the IE view
Nordeen: Nesoi: do it all the time.
Rabinowitz: The contact us at the bottom just will not line up
Geoghegan: Opsec: so what’s the reason for dumping and restoring the database?
Nordeen: Nesoi: that’s if you’re moving it to another server
Nordeen: Nesoi: if you’re not, disregard that step
Caul: Opsec: cool. so if I just move the files from /wp to / what else do I have to do?
Nordeen: Nesoi: Edwin, but make sure to develop with relative links so you don’t have a headache later
Nordeen: Nesoi: the wp constants i pasted should do it
