    Thanks iionly. Good to know that's what I've been doing. The data directory is in what CPanel calls my home directory. Don't know if I have shell access but may look into your suggestion re. rsync. view reply

    I used to do a full site backup every so often. Now that it's grown considerably in terms of megabytes I just backup the Home Folder and Mysql  database using the CPanel Backup options. Is this enough to preserve and restore all new user...
    • To fully restore the site you would also need a complete up-to-date backup of the data directory. That's where the uploaded files are saved (profile images and any other types of files).

      If you have shell access to your server, you could use rsync to make the backup process a bit faster. You would only download modified/new files and not have to download the whole data directory and install folder each time.

    Thanks Rv4. Sorry I put my question in the wrong place. The Community layout seems to have changed recently and I got confused - had a hard time finding the Groups. Please feel free to delete my request.

    Am trying to find where to increase the text size in river. I assume it's in the typography file but cannot see where. Is it in pre or pre, code maybe? Am running 1.8. Jon

    Eureka - it worked! I entered: date_default_timezone_set('America/Montreal'); in engine/settings.php and the missing images now display correctly. Also, the album created post server move and its comments and the two new user registrations... view reply

    Sorry, my mistake. UTC - 5 is Montreal time (Eastern Daylight Time).  UTC is same as GMT. If I deleted the folders in question then put them back five hours later, would that fix it? (Probably a silly question but its late!) view reply
