2 Front Ends on One Database?

Post by Colin Kaminski » Thu Jan 10, 2008 7:00 am

I am migrating to a new server and I would like to make some changes to the phpBB3 board at the same time. Can I safely link to the database from the new server while it is still live on the old server? The database is on a third server.

This would allow me to do testing as I don't have a local install.

Yes, you can, just notice that any changes made on one front-end will appear on the other.

You might also run into some minor login issues, logging into one forum will log you out of the other.
