View Full Version : Migrating from windows
October 28, 2004, 12:45 PM
I have finished testing my website locally(windows pc), and i am ready to put it on the server (linux) but it gives me a tonne of erors(some of which i can fix) the rest seem to defy reason...
Anyway has anyone experienced problems migrating a wewbsite from windows to linux??

It all depends on ur language... and lil things.... windows uses \n\r while linux uses \n ...
You just have to know the difference between the two platforms and how ur programming language handles it
Most languages will tell u what is the diff between OS distros so just hang in there and do a lil reading
Had the same problem porting the perfect win/php site to linux/php

im using php also but i fixed it. it seems as if dreamweaver doesn't add capital letters to paths e.g. (<img src="Image_name"> in dreamweaver will be <img src="image_name"> ) and also linux is case sensitive, i didn't know.

nothing like case sensitivity to make ur day. That and changing "\" to "/" in path names... or even to "."

you would have to give an example of the errors....
The ones i encounter are local file name structures... switching from \ under windows to / under linux and tother simple things like actual resource locations...
