Moved site to root and now it is asking for new install

Post By:user_47363 | Reply

Please help!

I installed the new version of Zen Cart 1.38a in a folder called demo. I have my live store on the root of my server. I finally had the new store in demo ready to go live and replace my old store.

When I installed in Demo I had created a fresh new database and then imported my "live" database into the new one.

I copied my folder structure/files from /demo to the root and replaced the files that were there. I went into the 2 config files in includes and admin/includes and changed anywhere it said /demo/ to just "/" so it would show on the root.

When I load my page or the admin page I get the "Thank you for loading Zen Cat" message. I don't know what I did wrong! My site is

Please help! I have a big charity launch going out in 7 hours.

Thank you in advance!

Paths look okie in your /home/simetra/public_html/includes/configure.php. The only problem I can think of is that all the files needed were not copied completely.

Here is the includesconfigure

Did you also change the absolute path in the configure files?

Post the content of your includes/configure.php file (take out the database login info)
