Working on localhost, today I decided to rename my database from
dbnew. I did this using HeidiSQL > rename db
When I visit my site I now see the following error;
Warning: session_start(): Failed to read session data: user (path: C:\xampp\tmp) in C:\xampp\htdocs\mysite\libraries\joomla\session\handler\native.php on line 260 Error: Failed to start application: Failed to start the session
configuration.php and replaced all instances of
dbtest with 'dbnew' but same thing.
I've also emptied the db sessions table, tried a different browser and restarted apache / mysql.
If I revert the name back to
dbtest and change my
configuration.php accordingly all works as expected. SO, what am I doing wrong, how can I change my db name correctly?
