database error

database error

Hello. I have moved a powercms website from the domain to I copied all the files over, and am trying to get PowerCMS to "re-connect" on the new server. I did not have a copy of the MySQL database to transfer, as the site expired over a year ago, and then she decided she wanted it back.

Can you help?

I've attached the connection file. I think the problem is just with the database not beign copied over from the original site, Is there a way to reinstall it on the new server, no tables, etc. are present now.

In the connections folder, I renamed the PoserCMSConnection.php and installed_cms.txt files. this will cause Power CMS to run the installation routine again so you can set it up for the new server since you need to recreate the database and all the content.
