No friends yet.
Have you downloaded the external image dir?
Have You changed the path to this dir in your DB.
What about the OS?
I have taken a look at the wiki page about moving a site, and followed the instructions ther (several times :-(
eg, yes. I do not understand why the local site is looking for the files in a different directory than the remote site.
The local OS is Kubuntu 10.10. I think the remote machine is Debian.
I have tried to keep the files in the same places on both machines.
Have you changed the path of the data directory on Elgg MetaStrings table if it exists?
