Hi everyone -
I'm both perplexed and frustrated. I have TWO websites both are Drupal and both are based on Acquia distributions. The websites are quite separate in terms of hosting, although both are hosted by the same provider (managed as 2 separate subscriptions).
Website 1 WORKS - I can log into cPanel and create a FullBackUp. I download the backup to my local machine and unzip the .gz and .tar in 2 stages using 7-zip. I use Acquia Dev Desktop 2 to run the backup website. I navigate to Backup...\public_html for the website and use the option to use an existing SQL db which I find in a folder called mysql. After my dino-PC churns away for a short while my website appears.
Website 2 FAILS - I do everything the same but... After my dino-PC churns away for a short while I see the new website setup wizard. I'm at a loss as to what the causal difference is.
I've tried several things, including repeating entire process on multiple PCs but website 1 always restores and website 2 always gives me the setup wizard. Website 2 is due (overdue, perhaps) for a security update and other than that it works perfectly so I am reluctant to change the live version until I have at least verified the update on my desktop.
Any help much appreciated!
