An old config.php file has been detected…
I am currently running PHPbb in the root directory, but want to install bbpress as I have used WP for years and love it.
I want to be able to import current posts and users from phpbb, so to keep it ‘easy,’ I installed a new directory and new db for bbpress. I go to that URL, and get the installation start page. On the second page, I get this error:
An old config.php file has been detected in your installation. You should remove it and run the installer again. You can use the same database connection details if you do.
The config file is NOT in this directory, it is in the root (for phpbb). I tried editing in the info directly into the config file, but then the db can’t connect. I went through these steps, but no luck. How can I tell phpbb what db to use?
Is there a better way to do this?
