  • test boards on same server?

    Hello Support,

    I am currently setting up a test board (on the same server as my live board) to test some file and template changes before making them live whilst still using the original (live) mysql data (eg threads and members).

    I have uploaded all the unzipped vb2.3.0 files in the same file structure. I did not run the install as the database is already there. I simply want to test come changes to the templates but it appears as though the the templates have been copied across too! Are "templates" recorded on the database? How can i avoid this?

    I am using the same config files.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, templates are in the database. You wuill need to set up a completely separate datae to do what you want.
