  • Test forum - possible at all?

    I've tried to set up a test forum for both 2.x and 3.x, but neither will allow me to stay logged in on the test forum. Even after a lengthy support ticket, no dice.

    So my question: is there any conceivable way to set up a test forum that works on the same server as your main board?

    Yes, I currently have a board setup on the same server... the problem however I think is the cookies, which are replaced each time you log onto a board within the server... Im probably wrong however... I also get this error, but its not a big issue, just log back in (For me anyway)

      I assume by 'server' you mean 'domain'. You need to have the correct cookie domain and path settings for both forums in order for the cookies not to conflict.

        Yes, I was going to edit to "domain."

        That was the issue of my support ticket, we tried lots of combinations for cookie domains/paths and it did not work.

          install to subdomains

            You dont need to edit in the cookie domain - leave it blank (in fact I think it was causing some admin lockout problems, Kier had to write a patch to fix it.) All tou need to do is specify your cookie path in BOTH your live and test forums. Then you'll stay logged in and properly cookied to both forums.


            your live forum is..


            your cookie path is..


            Your test forum is...


            your cookie path is..


            That's all you need to do.
