I recently changed host for my forum. I simply copied the repertory to the new server and copied the database.
Then I changed the database parameters to the new parameters.
Yet after all, it appears that it was still using the old parmeters that got themselves into jforum-custom.conf I don't know how.
Now the previous host shut the database, and I have only a month old valid backup
Why are the database info in jforum-custom? Is it due to upgrades.
Shouldn't the database configuration in database/mysql... be the only and real place to configure things? [originally posted on jforum.net by pala]
