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?
