Transfering Question

Hi,

I realise that this is a silly question, but I really need confirmation as I can’t really risk losing everything!!

I have Freeway 4 Express on one Computer and this was used to design a pretty big website I made for a client. The website uses WebYep also for most the text.

On my laptop I have Freeway Pro 5 and I want to transfer the website from 4 Express to 5 Pro. I will copy the files for the website onto an external hard drive and then edit the website via the drive on the Laptop.

So, my question is…will this affect any of the WebYep Content? If I do this and then upload once I’ve changed all I want to in Pro will the content from WebYep still be there? I’m pretty sure that the answer is yes, but would feel more secure if I heard it being said!

Many thanks in advance,

Fergus

The WebYep content is held in a file-based database on the server, so
nothing you do in Freeway Pro or Express will affect that. That said,
you do realize that once you save a Freeway Express file in Pro you
can never go back to Express, right? You’ll get a couple of warnings
from Freeway about this, but I thought one more warning wouldn’t hurt…

In addition to Walter’s warning, your WebYep field names in your
upgraded site must be exactly the same, page for page, in order to
marry up with the WebYep Data folder. Be careful if you are moving
items around.

(If you download the Data folder from the WebYep System on your host
server, you could, with a degree of pain, open it up in a text editor
(entry by entry) and recover missing material if something goes pear
shaped, but on a large site this job could be quite horrendous).

However, deleting or renaming WebYep items in your pages isn’t a good
idea once the site’s in use.

For total peace of mind it is worth grabbing an FTP client app and
downloading the whole site - WebYep, HTML and all - somewhere safe.
Just as a backup that can be restored simply by uploading it all
again, should what will never happen actually does happen. Do it now.
No, I mean right now.

Thanks for all the advice!
Well, I’ll still have the files on the other computer that will still be able to run with express on that computer so if anything goes badly I’ll be able to resort to them…fingers crossed I won’t have to though!

Thanks again…
