Thanks Andrew, but this server changeover is becoming as much a drag for me as it must be for you answering all these questions. You personally have done above and beyond the call of duty in patiently answering questions from so many of us whose understanding isn't up to the task, but like some others, I'm starting to feel that Exetel has fallen from its usual high standards in managing this change, and left us computer bunnies hanging high and dry a little.SysAdmin wrote: Please see point 2b.
I was able to set up all my website two years ago, including a forum and database, but somehow can't make it work now, even after 4 or 5 posts here.
I have read point 2b (there are actually two points 2b, so I missed the second one for a while). Every one of my php files is now 705, and I have tried to open the forum with all files set at 705, and again with directories set at 707, but no matter what I do, I still get the same error message. It's quite possible I haven't set my new DB details correctly (though I think I have got that right), but I surely should still get a blank forum.
Any further ideas please?
