Problem after migration...

edited September 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I've shifted changed the domain name for my forum, moved my vanilla files to a new folder on my server and updated my conf/settings.php accordingly. The forum loads up, but when I try to log in, I get the following error:

"Some problems were encountered
The file could not be opened. Please make sure that PHP has write access to the [...]/conf/settings.php file."

Path is correct, so the file's there. All of the permissions for files and folders appear to be the same of my original installation. What am I overlooking?

Thanks in advance...

    I've set my conf/settings.php to 777. That seems to fix it. Is that what it's supposed to be? In the other folder, my settings.php file was set at 644, and it worked without a problem...

    Actually, now I'm kicking around, I see that menu links are still pointing to the old folder, even though I've updated everything in conf/settings.php, so back to the original question: what have I missed?

    Ah. Page manager.

    Long story short - I ended up doing a GREP to see what files still had a reference to my old folder - pulled up custompages.php in the Pagemanager extension and the default.php of the Members only extension. I would never have picked that last one up...

    Keep talking to yourself like this mate and you'll be taken away by little men in white coats :-)

    That page manager thing should be sorted out with the latest version I think ;)
