Drupal multi sit setup fails when changing database name, using mysql and apache2.2 on a windows install.

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have copied the production site to a folder called test.prod.com. I have made a bckup of the prod data base in phpmyadmin and restored it to a data base called prodtest.I have edited the settings.php file to point to the new data base and foint to the site test.prod .com.

Without running the install.php file I get error  table XXXXprodtest does not exist in the database. several of these errors.

If i run the install PHP file I do not get the original web site to use for testing.

How do I create the test site from the original production site?
