All the catalog images are broken. I backed up the media directory and moved it to a new hosting together with a new site. And now none of the images are displaying.

I am guessing that you started with a fresh database, you will have to import these images again then.

Have you tried clearing out all of the cache?

Did you change the domain name as well? If that is the case, you need to update the Base URL. Run the following SQL command:

UPDATE core_config_data SET value='your_new_url/' WHERE path like '% base_url %';

You can use SSH or a web based tool like phpMyAdmin to execute the command.

Hi,

Check the file permissions are correct on the /images folder, and that the file ownership is your account username.

Regards,
Suhail.

Domain name is the same. Nothing changed.

Also don’t forget to reset the pear cache otherwise magento connect might not work due to change in paths.

- delete the downloader/pearlib/pear.ini and then re-login to your magento connect

* anyone know of any better method than this? this method seems a bit cruel, it destroys all existing magento connect extensions and history *

Well, instead of deleting it, I guess you can just edit the file to reflect the new path. Haven’t tried it myself, though.

Heh, but unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to work. Even tried sed replace all and it just corrupts the downloader.
Looks like some how it is also tied to the database and pear need to re-initalize completely.
