I've just download this forum software and wonder how I can change my website from:http://www.mydomain.com/vanilla-core-2-0-18-1/vanilla
I don't know of it causing any damage, but I know that if you don't do it after moving folders then you get BONK-ed (if you'll excuse the expression.)
AfaIk the ini files in cache recreate themselves as needed.
renaming the folders in on the server caused an error.
just extract all the contents from vanilla folder to your /forum/ folder on server. if you receive any error check out details for what error you get
$Configuration['Garden']['Debug'] = TRUE;
to your config.php
There was an error rendering this rich post.
Once you move the files, or rename the folders, clear the Vanilla - cache folder. That normally does the trick.
Thanks, I'll see how it goes tomorrow.
BTW, how do I get these really neat little tabs for bold, italics, code, quote etc. in the textarea where I am typing this text. It must be a plugin right? Does anyone know the name of it?
Just got back to the forum project from last Friday. I have added the folder "forum" and transferred all files from the old "vanilla" folder to the "forum" folder by ftp.
When you say deleting the cache, what exactly do you mean? In the cache folder there are only .ini files. I guess I shouldn't be deleting those?
The error reads: Fatal error: Class 'Gdn' not found in /home5/gdcrefor/public_html/forum/bootstrap.php on line 47
I deleted all the chache files (and backed them first of course). I get this error message with a blue background:
Something funky happened. Please bear with us while we iron out the kinks.
I'll now keep the .ini files but just delete the data in them and see how that fares.
It worked. Thanks a lot.
What damage or future issues does deleting the cache files cause?
