First, have they removed the search function here or did they hide it? I don't see any way to search anymore.
I have a DNN 3 site running and I have created a subdomain on the site to serve as a sandbox. The existing site is the only one on the DNN instance. So basically I want to duplicate the existing site in the subdomain to let it serve as a testing ground.
Should I do a fresh DNN install and then try to duplicate the site using a template created from the existing site? Or should I just copy the database into another one and copy the entire DNN folder structure into the subdomain, update the web.config and run
with that? Are their any pitfalls to copying the existing site of which I might not be aware?
I manage the server, so I can do anything I need to do to get this to work.
Thanks so much for any advice on my options.
I did this and it seems to work. I found a nice SPROC to copy the existing database into the Sandbox database. I just moved my files, updated web.config and the Portal Alias.
Can this cause any problems with the real sit or database? The sites are at
http://sandbox.blueribbonschools.com/Home/tabid/36/Default.aspx and the real site is at
http://220.127.116.11/ <the current domain site is on WH4L at
www.blueribbonschools.com . We are about to move it over to this new server. But we got WH4L to create an 'A' record to point to the new IP address and then redirected to the sandbox website with http headers.
