Trials of forum update with domain change

Post by Harrison76 » Sat Nov 10, 2018 6:44 pm

Hi, guys,
I'm taking the road to updating the forum.

I have a professional server without space problems, I have no problems to create other db and in addition I have the domain .com unused (the original is in the .it)

I then duplicated and configured files, databases and domains

I then opened the database with notepad++, replaced throughout the db the domain name (from old to new) and the database name (from old to new)
the rest is all perfectly identical: same server, same ports, same password.
also in the htaccess I have updated the domain names, and also in other php files (some pages cookies for example, of the theme etc.). But in the end it doesn't work and he says:

This page does not redirect correctly
An error occurred while connecting to www.forumelettrico.com.
This problem is often caused by blocking or rejecting cookies.

What does it depend on and how can I resolve it?
Thank you

You don't have to edit the db but the config.php
