Try Vanilla Forums Cloud product
Please upgrade to 2.3 here. The 2.2 and earlier branches are no longer being updated.

Copy Vanilla installation to other directory

In order to update from my current v2.2 installation to v2.5 without affecting my users I have tried the following:

  • duplicated the Vanilla DB
  • copied the Vanilla folder (from /forum to /forum2)
  • edited the /forum2/conf/config.php settings to use the duplicated database
  • deleted /cache/*

My plan had been to apply the 2.5 update to this copy, make sure everything works, then switch to this installation.

However, when I open /forum2, I just get a blank page. No content at all.
I tried setting $Configuration['Debug'] = TRUE; but still no error message, nothing.

Only the forum seems to be affected; the complete dashboard seems functional when I go to /forum2/index.php?p=/dashboard/settings

Any help would be appreciated.
