Godaddy migration has left Powergallery inoperable....

I had Godaddy migrate to another server and now Power Gallery either does not operate or is inconsistent. What should I do?

I exported the sql....added a new Powergallery1 DB and imported the sql.....modigfied the powergallery.php app with a suggested hostname: 'localhost' and now in the CMS backend when I go to capture the code for adding to a website I get:

I can refrerence a gallery url...which works fine....but in the app backend after I capture a piece of php code and put it in an php file and reference it in a web page...the code being captured now is referencing a library at: /home/hofde0149/public_html/hdpa49/Powergallery/

Before the migration it was referencing: /home/content/70/11048770/html/Powergallery/

Godaddy path for the new website would be:

Godaddy absolute path for the new website would be:

Godaddy asked that the value in the powergallery.php hostname be: $hostname_powergallery = 'localhost';

ideas? does it need a reinstall?

I can take a look and try to fix it for you.

Can I get FTP access and a url to reproduce the problem? I'll see if there is a simple fix I can implement.

Thanks Ray....just now solved the problem.....

Godaddy was not completely forthright with how they were going to migrate.....a new static IP was also assigned and I had not been given that info even after paying for the service. My FTP was pointing to the former shared hosting IP. Once pointed to the correct destination this problem was resolved, all was good. Good info though as I'm preparing a store for deployment and that would have been a problem had I not learned from this experience.....all good...
