New Database


Recommended Posts

Not sure how to point my administration pages to a new database (DB). I changed the configure.php file to look for the new DB, but it keeps telling me the DB does not exist.


Any help would be great, Thanks

That's how to point ot a new DB.


Check the config file on the server and be sure it says what you think it says.


It won't change if the permissions don't allow it.


Also be aware of the following:


In the includes FOLDER (catalog and admin) where the normal configure.php files are there is a FOLDER named local


On some installs there may be a configure.php inside the local FOLDER (catalog and admin)


If there is, anything in it overrides anything in the normal configure.php files.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
