I'm preparing the upgrade of my phpbb forum to the latest version.
To be extra careful, I first create a copy forum, identical to
the original except for the name, by
1) Making a deep copy of the original forum's root directory
2) Making a copy (in phpmyadmin) of the original's forum database
3) Changing the parameters in the new directory's config.php file,
to make the new forum connect to the new database.
My new forum seems to work fine at first, but at closer glance it turns out that
the new forum is not connected to the new database, is still connected to the old database
even though I changed the $dbname parameter in the config.php file.
What should I do to make the new forum connect to the new database, and fully separate
the two copies ?
