I am in the process of migrating HandicappedPets.BIZ to HandicappedPets.com
Currently that both have independent Joomla installations but they are sharing the same MYSql databases.
2.5 RC1 is installed with several forms on .BIZ - they show up fine on .COM (I get a conflict when I try to install on both BIZ and COM)
When I fill in a form on .BIZ and send - the email works fine
When I fill a form on .COM and send - the email appears to go nowhere
In addition, when I admin from the .BIZ site - Fine

When I Admin from the .COM site I get
Internet Explorer: cannot display the webpage or
Firefox: Content Encoding Error - The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

I figured there was a configuration file that needs to be different for the two sites - but can't find it.
Any Guidance Available?

Hi Mark,

Just checking - these are both Joomla 1.0 installations?

Try turning Off GZip compression on the .COM site Global Configuration.

Not sure about the mail problem. We have better debugging in the current releases. Silly question . .. do you have a working mail server on the .COM site?

Thank you!
Both Joomla 1.5.8
GZip was off on both - I turned it on for .COM - no help
Mailserver on .com is shut off. I use GoogleApps for mail.

I was thinking that if there was some chronoforms configuration file, I could play with that -- but I cant find one.

Would like to upgrade to 3, but the fact that I can seem to have both 2 and 3 running at the same time make this nearly impossible... is there a way to run them at the same time while I migrate the forms?

Hi Mark,

I don't think that there is any way of having 2 & 3 co-exist using the same database schema. You could use the same database but have the two sites running off different schemas will you do the transfer.

Is there a way I can run 2 & 3 at thv same time on one site using different database schemas? This would allow me to migrate each form one at time.

Also, is there a file or database where chronoforms keeps site specific information?

Hi Mark,

I've no idea - I shouldn't think so without a lot of hacking.

I don't quite understand the problem though. How I woudl do this would be to create a test site with the latest version of ChronoForms - recreate and debug the forms there and then use backup copies to restore onto the 'real' new site.

ChronoForms doesn't have any truly 'site specific' info. Everything is saved in the jos_chrono . . .' database tables.
