Hello - I was wondering if there is a thread, Resource, or discussion anywhere here that covers how to set up a test forum step-by-step - and this would be on the server, not locally/PC because another admin will need access. I did a search and looked in the Manual, and couldn't find such a guide, although I did find these somewhat helpful threads: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/test-forums-interfere-with-live-forums.23645/ http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforos-handing-of-cookie-domains.15260/ http://xenforo.com/community/threads/upgrading-test-forum-locking-live-forum.32918/ I do have some questions on the process in case there is not such a thread. My understanding is that I need to: Set up new directory and copy all the forum files to it Create a new database for that directory in cPanel Take a copy of my existing/live database and restore it to this new database Change the cookie prefix What order should these steps be done in and have I left anything out? Just want to ensure I don't mess up my live forum in the process or cause any problems for the forum users. Also, what is the shell command I need to use for the restore assuming I'm typing this into PuTTY and will have a separate database user (let's say it's frank476). Any guidance appreciated.
