Let me give you an idea of what I did. Since the userforms and save and publish have a lot of problems when pages get too many and forms get too long, I downloaded my current site database to perform changes locally where the memory_limit is higher. To avoid unnecessary errors in my current db i decided to create a new database and user altogether. I gave that user full permissions to the new database and then imported my current local database into the new online database.
I changed to details in the _config.php file of my online site to match the new database and user.
Now I get this:
[User Error] Couldn't run query: SHOW FULL FIELDS IN `Permission` Table 'atankers_silver.Permission' doesn't exist
What the hell does this error indicate? I just gave the new user permissions to the database. Is there another file aside from the _config.php which I have to edit?
