1. Hugh (cheesegrits) here. Thank you for all the good wishes. My back surgery was a success, post-op recovery is going well, and I'm getting stronger and feeling better every day. I hope to be getting back in the saddle and working support again over the next few days.
  2. IMPORTANT NOTE - we have made some changes in our github branch naming. The 'master' branch no longer exists, and is now called 'joomla25' (which is Fabrik 3.0). The 'joomla3' branch (which is Fabrik 3.2) remains unchanged. We have also removed all the other testing branches which had accuulated over the last few years. I have posted a thread in the Community forum for 3.0 with some more information, feel free to as questions there.

Moving a site and changing the Fabrik Connection

    Hi there,

    After having moved a 1.6.3 site (using Akeeba 3.2.7) we encountered a problem with the database connection.

    Two things.

    Ususally (on 1.5.23 sites) after having moved a website (either manually or using akeeba) the first thing we do is open the active database connection, in fabrik, and it will auto-fill that with the current/new database information.

    Fabrik 3 doesn't do this.

    We then noticed it still fancied a connection to the old database, even though we could verify the correct new information using the Administrator panel. When we looked in the database, in the connections table for fabrik we still saw the old database information there.

    that's an intentional change. People were not getting that they had to save the form, as for them the details looked correct. You now have to ensure you enter the correct details.

    I've updated the svn today so that only valid connections can be saved, and the session connection is also removed upon save, which is probably what you were seeing when the db connection info was correct but you were still unable to connect
