> I have a working installation of a catalog in my internal Linux
> development box. Now that we are ready to publish I migrate it to my
> Internet host. And, as you may suppose, my catalog doesn't run anymore.
> The catalog is based on construct, runs with mysql and is working fine.
> My internal Linux is a RH6.1, with IC 4.6 and mysql.
> My Internet host is a Cobalt RaQ4i. I have IC 4.6, mysql and the demo
> catalog running on it.
> I did the following steps:
> The catalog name is racca (yes, racca)
> Dumped the database, and install in the RaQ4i. Setup security and check
> access OK. Issue SQL queries and it works OK.
> Dumped the directory /var/lib/interchange/racca to a tar file.
> Dumped the directory /home/httpd/html/racca to a tar file.
> Dumped the file /home/httpd/cgi-bin/racca to a tar file.
> Sent by ftp the three files.
> Stop interchange.
> Untar the first file on /var/lib/interchange/racca
> Untar the second first file on
> /home/sites/www.raccasoluciones.com/web/racca (www.raccasoluciones.com/ is
> a virtual host)
> Untar the third file on /home/sites/www.raccasoluciones.com/web/cgi-bin
> Modifiy /var/lib/interchange/racca/catalog.cfg and alter host name and
> Modifiy /var/lib/interchange/racca/products/variable.txt and alter host
> name and paths.
> Modifiy /usr/lib/interchange/interchange.cfg and add the line:
> Catalog racca /var/lib/interchange/racca
> www.raccasoluciones.com/cgi-bin/racca www.raccasoluciones.com/racca
> Modify /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to support the catalog binary:
> ScriptAlias /cgi-bin /home/sites/site9/web/cgi-bin (site9 is
> the real name of www.raccasoluciones.com)
> Start interchange and got the following message in the error log:

In the past what I have done is only transfer pages / files up. I run 2
identical catalogs. One live and one development. When I have let's say the
search.profiles the way I want it I send to the live server and restart.
I would bottle up the entire site and install in the root interchange
directory with any name you want. Then I would run makecat and call that cat.
Make sure to get rid of your catalog.cfg and put in an empty one from another
cat in the root dir. Or just do a makecat and send up your pages and files to
replace what is there.
