Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Invision power board
Tech Support Specialist: Mickey Trivett, Web Designer & Tech. Consultant replied 8 years ago
Have you copied the database files over in PHPMyAdmin or MySQL?

You will need to create a new database in PHPMyAdmin and a USERNAME that is similar to the one on the working server.

After that you will need to edit the config file for Invision Power Board.

Does this help? thanks...

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
