I had to migrate to a new web server due to some issues. I had a backup of the SQL files that I successfully restored and I restored the ubbthreads web directory. I had to change the database userid and password when I defined it on the new server because the new server already had a userid of admin and I needed to change it to something else.

Where do I tell ubbthreads what the database userid and password is? Thanks.

Control Panel > DB, Paths & URLs > Database Configuration
Make updates, then click "Update Settings" button.

Its the very first item, top-left, within the "Master Settings" section of your control panel.

I should have mentioned that I can't get to the control panel. When I go to: http://dennyp.com/ubbthreads/ - I get.

We encountered a problem. The reason reported was

Database error only visible to forum administrators


Where do I go to look at the database error?

Thanks.

What you're looking for can be found within includes/config.inc.php grin

Thanks. That's the file I was looking for and couldn't think of. Within that file I have:

I've gotten past the database error by using the correct passwords. I'm not sure if I should start a new topic here for a new problem or not. But I will continue here for continuity purposes.

Now my browsers are giving me a redirect loop message. The folder names and structures on my new server are the same as on my old server. I checked the config.inc.php file and couldn't see anything obviously wrong in any of the paths or locations specified in the variables there.

Is there any kind of command line type command I can use to cause an internal rebuild of everything since I can't get to the panels?
