BONK error when moving Forum to live server

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I installed Vanilla Forum v2.0.6 on my local machine, and got my forum up and running smoothly.
Now I need to move it to the live server.
I zipped up the site, moved it over, unzipped it, and also copied the database accross. I changed the permissions on the folders where needed, restarted apache, did all I think I should do,
BUT
when navigating to site, it gives me :
' Bonk - Something funky happened. Please bear with us while we iron out the kinks."

When removing the '$Config...[Garden] error'-message line, i get:

Fatal Error in Gdn_Database.Query();
Table 'docimmelman.GDN_Permission' doesn't exist

Please, I need help again...

    You should fresh install Vanilla 2 on a new server, not zip & move an old instance. Just export the database's content (not structure) and import it after the fresh install.

  • Thanks Tim and Lincoln - Forum is up and running smoothly.
    Excited to do more work with Vanilla.
  • I got the same message. Your comment to uncommenting the Error line in the config.php file gives me the same return. I copy and paste the select in phpmyadmin with the same result. So I found out that theres something wrong with the casing in mySQL. After googling I found: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/de/name-case-sensitivity.html. My dev-Server had status 1, my final Server 0. So every Select failes. After changing everything works great. :)
