Hi,

I just built a web site with joomla in my native language but the client asked for an english version later. so instead of dealing with language components i wanted to try cloning

 

Here is what i try to do;

1- http://www.prokoyapi.com will appear after clicking?

 

what i would like to know is if is this possible for database reasons. i mean cloning the files must not be a problem to a differet directory on the same folder but cloning the same database to the same location? i mean i will have two sets of files for a web site but one database, thinking about this confuses me.

Yes, this is what XCloner does, simply create a new database and follow the restore procedure mentioned here /wiki/index.php?title=Restore_Backup#Restore_Backup_.E2.80.93_Manually

 

Hope it helps! Ovidiu

the problem is when i try to browse XCloner.php i get an “Internal Server Errror” which says :

 

The server encountered an internal error or
misconfiguration and was unable to complete
your request.

Please contact the server administrator,
[email protected] and inform them of the time the error occurred,
and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.

More information about this error may be available
in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found
error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Try and check your server error log, that error is usually related to permission issue, so :

 

1. apply 755 permissions on the restore folder

2. apply 644 permissions on the XCloner.php script

3. delete any .htaccess from that directory
