Upgrading test forum locking live forum.


Well-known member
So I was upgrading my test forum to test and when I visited my live forum it gave the board closed message stating it was being upgraded. Have I lost a few marbles or is something screwy?

The folder structure is along the lines of:

Also, it displayed one of my notices regarding my account being upgraded...even though that happened long ago. It never displayed for me until the upgrade.

Separate databases I assume?

Have you setup a cache in the library/config.php file? If so then make sure each forum uses a different prefix:

$config['cache']['frontendOptions']['cache_id_prefix'] = 'xf_';
And depending on your cache backend, you might need to specify a prefix for that. For a 'file' backend it is:

$config['cache']['backend'] = 'file';

$config['cache']['backendOptions']['file_name_prefix'] = 'xf_';
