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.
