Config File Request

Post by Ratmaster »

I had did something that made my config file get overwritten by something else, so can someone post the contents of a config file (you can remove your information) so I can edit it to connect to my database?

download a new copy and change that.

BTW I would reduce the size of your avatar - it probably exceeds the allowed size.

you may need to change the prefix and/or the db type too - they are what I have.
