Help! I've managed to lose my site by trying to move it...
I've evidently done something stupid but can't figure out what.
I just tried moving a finished c5 site up from the /cms directory, where I was building it, to root. (I've done this successfully in the past on older versions of c5, but never with 5.5)
I disabled & cleared cache, and turned off Pretty URLs, and backed everything up, and then moved all the files up. Didn't work, I couldn't see the site at root at all.
So I gave up and thought I'd try again later... I moved all the files back to the /cms subdirectory.
But now when I go to login at /cms/index.php/login (I'm assuming just /cms wouldn't work any more without Pretty URLs?) I just get a 404 error. So I can't see my c5 site at all right now. And I really need it back!!
What should I do now? Is there another way in?
so I have my site back...
now I have to try to move it again.
If you update that setting after moving the site, everything should work.
so actually (if you don't do anything idiotic like accidentally deleting your index.php, ha) it is easier to move a site.
Mine moved beautifully the second time round.
Thanks for clarifying
