    No bump, have you edited the config file to reflect the change?

    Yes new db name,passwd and user but the site itself works okay there are a few absolute paths for some reason but thats okay really its the fact I can't add delete or change articles, modules or components settings and details that is proving to be a step too far. Worst case scenario I recreate the entire site and copy the articles, components, modules and plugins manually.

    Yep then changed it back when it didn't work? I've just removed the entire site and copied back whilst removing everythign else in the folder and now it seems to be working at the administrators side but I'll get back with word either way. Certain areas still have absolute paths but I'll see what happens now.

    JoomlaPack

    I use JoomlaPack when moving Joomla installs. It basically ZIP's your install into a file you download and upload to new site, then run through install just like it's new. Take care of the config for you.

    Welcome to JoomlaPack

    Maybe a few files didn't get transferred the first time you copied. I used to have a problem with SmartFTP dropping files every time I FTP'd a lot of information. Maybe something similar. Hope you got your problem fixed.

    What do you mean most of it? its easy as pie to move to root from a directory and it shouldn't break anything (as long as you didn't manually link using the full path)

    You can use Joompack or do it manually... but either way..

    another vote for JoomlaPack here, couldn't have been easier to transfer a site without paying someone else to do it for me.

    daboroe, why are you recommending Joompack. It is very good but if he is not moving servers/Databases it could be very simple to do manually.

    1) Delete all files on root, except your test folder

    2) Cut all files from the test folder and paste into root (as it is a cut operation it takes 10 seconds or less)

    3) Open config file in favorite text editor and edit the things needed (base URL, and paths)

    4) Test and sit back. Takes less time and provides a better understanding of how Joomla and its file structure works.

    This is the way I have done it on all my sites....

    Options and ease of use

    Recommending something isn't the same as saying you HAVE to use it. It's just an option and he might not have known about it. I like it because you don't have to edit any files. Just install like you would a fresh install of Joomla. No databases to worry about either. All in one package. In this case, might not need it. In another, you might.

    It would only be removing the /example from the places in red.
    <?php
    class JConfig {
    var $offline = '0';
    var $editor = 'tinymce';
    var $list_limit = '20';
    var $helpurl = 'http://help.joomla.org';
    var $debug = '0';
    var $debug_lang = '0';
    var $sef = '1';
    var $sef_rewrite = '1';
    var $sef_suffix = '0';
    var $feed_limit = '10';
    var $feed_email = 'author';
    var $secret = '4gbQSovy9x9geiFA';
    var $gzip = '0';
    var $error_reporting = '-1';
    var $xmlrpc_server = '1';
    var $log_path = '/var/www/vhosts/*SCHOOL*/httpdocs/example/log/';
    var $tmp_path = '/var/www/vhosts/*SCHOOL*/httpdocs/example/tmp/';
    var $live_site = 'http://www.*domain*.org.uk/example';
    var $force_ssl = '0';
    var $offset = '0';
    var $caching = '0';
    var $cachetime = '15';
    var $cache_handler = 'file';
    var $memcache_settings = array();
    var $ftp_enable = '1';
    var $ftp_host = '*FTPHOST*';
    var $ftp_port = '21';
    var $ftp_user = '*username*';
    var $ftp_pass = '*password*';
    var $ftp_root = '/httpdocs/example/';
    var $dbtype = 'mysql';
    var $host = 'MYSQLDB';
    var $user = '*user*';
    var $db = '*Database*';
    var $dbprefix = 'jos_';
    var $mailer = 'smtp';
    var $mailfrom = '*email*';
    var $fromname = '*fromname*';
    var $sendmail = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
    var $smtpauth = '1';
    var $smtpuser = '*smtpuser*';
    var $smtppass = '*smtppass*';
    var $smtphost = 'IP';
    var $MetaAuthor = '1';
    var $MetaTitle = '1';
    var $lifetime = '30';
    var $session_handler = 'database';
    var $password = '*Password*';
    var $sitename = '*sitename*';
    var $MetaDesc = '*MetaDesc*';
    var $MetaKeys = '*MetaKeys*';
    var $offline_message = 'This site is down for maintenance. Please check back again soon.';
    }
    ?>
    If it doesn't work make sure you paths are correct by using a path.php.....

    Path.php
    PHP Code:
    <?php
      
    echo getcwd();
    ?>
    Just Place it in the root and go visit that page and it will give you the full path to the root.
