Ok, so I’ve forgotten (again) how to do this properly
I’ve got a ‘live’ site running a wp installation - mysite.com.
I exported the complete wp database and saved it locally.
Set up a new db called trg and imported the ‘live’ db from above save and added a new mysqluser & pword.
I’ve set up a sub-domain e.g. trg.mysite.com
Installed wp using fantastico on trg.mysite.com
changed the wp-config in trg.mysite.com to reflect the user/pword in step 2
changed the rows in options file to point to the trg.mysite.com url
I can log in to the dashboard just fine but when I try to view the site at trg.mysite.com I just get a blank screen … no error messages, just a blank screen
anyone see what I’ve missed?
