  • cookie paths with two forums

    live forum domain
    live forum location as a subdomain.

    test forum is on the same domain but in a different folder called [forumscopy]

    i have also set different cookie prefixes for each config.php file

    i setup a test forum and database by copying the [forums] folder to a new [forumscopy] folder on my domain and pointing the tests config.php file to the backup db.

    i cant access the admincp on the test forum as i just get bounced back to the login page (cookie issue i guess).
    went into the orignal forum admincp and specified the /forums/ folder in the cookie path options.
    then logged out.
    now i cant log in to either forums admincp..

    what have i done? how do i undo it?

    apologies i posted before searching..okay i have reset the live forum cookie path using the tools.php script..
    but still cannot login to the test forum admincp..very confused..

    how do i run two forums, one live and one test using two separate databases..?
    is there a 'how-to' out there..?

    would i be right in thinking that until i change the forum path in the admincp on the test forum it will not work..? can these values be edited directly and if so which .php script holds them?
