I'm trying to set up a development folder for a Drupal6 already existing website.
htdocs/sites/<website>/settings.php I have the following line in order to connect to the drupal6 DB:
$db_url = 'mysql://root:<mysql_password>@localhost/<drupal_db_name>';
If I try to enter mysql using the same login data, I can do it without any problems, so I know this data is correct.
But I still keep getting the "Site off-line" message.
I've also tried using settings.php in the "default" folder under
htdocs/sites/, but it didn't solve the problem.
Any suggestions of what could I try in order to fix or debug this?
UPDATE: I have not taken the site down through admin. I've taken the folder from a production server (where it's working correctly), and I've placed it into another server. I've also made the same thing with the DB.
