  • Problem with Test Forums

    Hello everyone.

    I recently began setting up a test forum for my site. The problem I'm having is that everything I do on my test forum, also happens on my live forum.

    The cookie path was the same when I realized this, so I tried changing it on the test forum. However, this also changes it to the same thing on the live forum.

    Would appreciate any help.

    You're using the same database as the live site instead of taking a backup and using it.

    What you need to do is:

    - backup your live database
    - create a new database and import your backup to this
    - amend the config.php file in your test directory to point to the new database and change the cookie prefix to be different to your live site
    - log in to AdminCP and change the Forum URL in vBulletin Options > Site Name / URL / Contact Details

    You should now be able to work without affecting your live site.
