I just had some trouble migrating an Omeka site from another host. I used the “one-click” install option and that went fine. After importing the database and the necessary folders (files, plugins, and themes), however, none of the content appeared in the new instance. It looked fine, but it was just an empty Omeka site.
The fix that worked for me was changing the database prefix in the db.ini file from to prefix = “om_” to "prefix = “omeka_” and the site finally connected to the database.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
Two final things: (1) I am using Rockaway instead of Reclaim, but I assume the settings are the same for Reclaim and (2) I tried the API migration option, but the actual files did not migrate, just the URLs from the old site.
