Hi cw,

Sorry, I guess I forgot to follow up on this ticket. I already copied the site over a few days ago http://www.corporatewatch.org/

Is there something I missed?

Hi Ross

I'm afraid that we did not want to copy our old site (which is currently at www.corporatewatch.org), we wanted to copy our new site which is on a subdomain of the Mapping the Corporations site at www.mappingthecorporations/cw-website - are you able to migrate this site onto our new hosting instance?

Sorry for the confusion

Weird...that's what I thought I migrated... :-( I'll try again.

Hi cw,

Okay, I think there's a problem with your dns, b/c http://cw2.mayfirst.org/ shows your migrated site. When I dig for corporatewatch.org it points to the ip address 77.240.11.116 which in turn points to hickory.tincan.co.uk. This seems to be a linode server. The problem does not seem to be with the migration but with your DNS.

Ok - thanks for migrating the site - however the colourscheme changed during the migration so that on the migrated site the background is grey instead of white -

I just submitted this additional help ticket:

Our colour scheme for our site at www.mappingthecorporations.org/cw-website has changed from a white middle background and banner to a grey middle column and banner. Is this anything to do with upgrades of Drupal?

Also - Ross has just set migrated the site to a new hosting instance for us. However, the colourscheme has changed further so that on the migrated site the entire background is grey

Hi Charvey,

This is not something that our support staff should be working on. It would be best if you get your theme developer to fix this problem.

But the problem is that the migration did not import the colour scheme. If you look at www.mappingthecorporations/cw-website you can see that the background colour is different. So surely it was a problem with the migration.

I just cleared the caches on the site...something you should be able to do as a site admin. Does it look like you expect now?
