    Damm i'm pissed, i just typed a nice long explination of what I am about to try and tell you, hit submit, and it wouldnt let me because I haven't made five posts yet, and I used a URL in my example ( it was w w w . your-domain . c o m )....

    Anyhow...

    Make sure that your graphics/pictures have the same file structure on both servers and that all graphics are present on both servers.

    Secondly, figure out how the links are made, are they going through a domain? Or are they just local links...

    if they are going through a domain then as soon as your backup server kicks in, the domain should switch over to your backup server, and thus the graphics will work, they may justn ot be working right now beucase the domain is resolving elsewhere.

    Other then that i'm not really sure, but i'm sure there's a way to do it without changing a shitload of code.

    this might be a good example and reason to create relative links ie.. /images/image.gif rather than http://yoursite.com/images/image.gif let me know if you want me to really look at it N/C. A bunch of your links point to http://easytool.org/ not sure, but looks like that may have been your domain that is no longer resolving to that space.

    I'm not sure I understand what you are saying because your English is very unclear. But from what I understand, you are attempting to run a PHP script, and it is not working for you? Does the host support PHP?

    If you could possibly use clearer English then we might be able to understand a bit better.

    Take it easy, sometimes is not easy to move a script from one place to another because of the config files and folders.

    I think you will start to cry if you try changing a cgi-perl application.
