I cant migrate my multifiles jpa,j01,j02,...till j05 site to a new server

The error is ,, Invalid header in archive file, part 0, offset 1282500752,,

What should i do?

I did increase memory limit , max time and so on but this has no effects at all.

Best regards



Nb If i change the dns to the old server , the site functions normally

I will need four pieces of information from you:

  1. How big, in bytes, is each one of the part files?
  2. What is the part size you had configured in Akeeba Backup when taking the backup?
  3. How did you download the part files? Through the browser, FTP or SFTP? Please specify.
  4. How did you upload the part files to the new server? Using your hosting control panel's file manager, FTP or SFTP? Please specify.

Correlating these two pieces of information will let me understand more about your problem.

Hi Nicholas


thanks for your answer

I had like 6 jp1, jp2, .. jpa with maximum bytes
So I removed some mp4 files on my website and that reduced the files to 3 jp files

And then anything worked fine.
