    Confused - can't access my own database Link to this post


    for testing and development reasons I installed Silverstripe into two different folders beneath htdocs ("silverstripe" and later "wsk". I ran the installation procedures in both folders and assigned in the "silverstripe" folder the default "ss_mysite" database and in the "wsk" folder one named "wsk". Both databases have been created by mysql as expected.

    Now when working with the "wsk" installation where the "wsk" database is properly assigned in the _config.php in the mysite folder all changes Silverstripe is doing in the database are going to the "ss_mysite" database which is rather confusing. So I looked in the Silverstripe files for "ss_mysite" and found it in "wsk/saphire/dev/install/DatabaseAdapterRegistry.php line 31:'default'=>'SS_mysite' and in wsk/saphire/_register_database.php line 47:'default'=>'SS_mysite'. And in no other place.

    So I changed the database name for the "silverstripe" installation to "test_mysite" (in _config.php) and renamed the database in the mysql folder. When loading the "wsk" site after a little while I found a fresh database named "ss_mysite" which was created and used by the "wsk" site. That's even more confusing.

    Has anyone an Idea what causes this problem and what I can do to get over it? Thanks for any help! Changing it in the two file where the database is referenced seams not to be best practice.
