Change to Folder storage mode after site has started.

Folder storage mode:
(If enabled, will store the user files in subfolders /datas/users/USERID/... instead of prepending the USERID to the filename. Must be set at the FIRST setup of the site ONLY. As soon as a file is uploaded to any PFS, it's too late to change this. It is not recommended to change this setting for now.)

If you would like to turn this on. like i did. but your site has started , even ran LDU once and it would be too much too late to change to the folder method.

The following lil script takes every file in a specified dir and turns it from USERID-filename (prepending the USERID to the filename) to /USERID/filename.

The script runs no SQL but will provide SQL for you to run. The SQL will change all your fps_file name from ID-filename to filename. And set all page_urls from www.yourdomain.com/7-filename to www.yourdomain.com/7/filename

how to use?
Before any use make a backup! if you can, backup files! eek. Then you need to backup your database.
tables sed_page and sed_files are only effected by the script.

the script is here

save it as something.php and place it in your root.
navigate to the script and it shall run.
Enter the SQL.

then dont forget to delete the script!

1 make a swap.php, paste in the code.
2 upload to root
3 navigate to www.domain.com/swap.php
4 SQL >
5 delete www.domain.com/swap.php

eeek. Did u backup? did anything actually happen ?

seems odd. How many files do you have? What version php is it?

if you wish we could chat on msn or something and we could play and make it work. It could be a number of things. pm me if so.
