[Solved]: Switching databases on a new install?
« on: August 29, 2009, 08:42:13 pm »

My site hoster just had his building burned to the ground and all the servers went with it. Luckily I had a backup of the database :)

I was using phpbb 3.0.4, a premod version of portal xl 5 and cpg1.4 with one of the integration tools.

My question is, if I do a completely clean install of cpg1.4 and re-integrate into a completely clean install of the portal setup and phpbb 3.0.4 can I simply point to the old database like phpbb? If so, what file could I edit to manually change the db entries.

Thank you ahead of time :)

If I missed this in the search apologies. If it's in the manual again apologies  :-\

Yes, you can.

You need to edit include/config.inc.php with the connection details.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
