Mambo questions (migration/version)
Hi, can you please help me identify which Mambo version I am running (I have FTP access), and how to migrate from an old Linux server (cPanel 11) to a new Linux server (Plesk 9)? Any guides for that? Thanks

Are you sure it's Mambo and not Joomla?
You should also be able to reset your mambo administrator password by using the phymyadmin in your cpanel by following the instructions on this page:
Once you do that then log into your mambo website probably in this way:
Your username is probably admin
The password would be the new password you created in phpmyadmin.
Once you get that far, then you should probably find the version of mambo either on the bottom of the admin page, or perhaps there is a link called Info, or something like that.
Check here (for instance) for mambo server requirements to see if it matches your newe server.
Mambo is so "old" that I suppose it might be possible that you will have to "downgrade" your server to match whatever Mambo requires.... Pay attention to what version of php mambo likes and of course what version of mysql mambo likes. Maybe it can run fine in todays latest versions of those key areas -- others please jump in here too!
Once you do that, then copy the mysql database via phpmyadmin, and then import it into your new mysql database.
Mambo probably has a file called configuration.php (at least Joomla does) so you will have to alter certain lines in that to match your new mysql info.
Not much activity on the mambo site since 2008...
But see if you can find additional info there...
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
thank you very much, it seems the previous web development company that developed the site has removed mambo messages and instead of the version it shows "developed by XXXX"
is there any other file (like version.conf or something similar) that would show the current version? I assume i have to re-install the same mambo package to the new server before I start copying files over.. right?
