Moving DAP installation to a different webhosting platform?

Watch this video for all the details! 

Here's a quick checklist to make sure things work smoothly after the move!

  • php version:  Let your new webhost know that you want php version to be 7.1.x or BELOW.

DAP does not work with php v7.2.x currently. So make sure your new server is on php v7.1.x or below.

  • MySQL Strict Mode:   'mysql strict mode' should be disabled in your mysql settings. 

If strict mode is enabled, it can cause unexpected errors. This should be done before you move your database to the new host. Work with your new webhost to make sure it's disabled.

  • IMPORTANT:  Update /dap/dap-config.php file

After the files/folders are moved to the new host, before you activate livelinks plugin, update the /dap/dap-config.php file with the right database params for the new host.  

The database params (hostname, username, password) in dap-config.php file should be updated to point to the new database (on the new host) otherwise DAP will try to connect to the old database and it'll cause errors.

It needs to match your database credentials in wp-config.php file (for the new host).

  • Delete Triggers if it's causing errors.

If livelinks activation fails with 500 error, then you may have to delete your database trigger.  

Login to your phpmyadmin via your webhosting cpanel and look for "triggers".  Look for the triggers (after_dapconfig_update, after_dapusers_update) and drop the triggers.

See image below for details.
