Ok, I think I got it - had to drop the original db before restoring. Now it seems to work #fingerscrossed
cloned nodebb, now getting errors with username taken?
I have cloned my VM as I thought it would be easier then setting everything up from scratch, I changed the config file to use the new domain and everything is working.
I then deleted all the users and posts and made the changes I wanted to the categories, however even though the only user is "Admin" when a try to register a new user its telling me that the username and/or email address is taken?
So I think even though I have deleted all the users, they must still exist somehow in the database?, can you advise how I can flush this database?
How did you delete the users? What does your network tab show when you try to register a new user?
@baris I deleted them in the ACP
I gave up, and just did a fresh install, I thought it would be quicker to just clone the existing one, but apparently when you delete a user in the ACP its not actually deleted.
@pitaj Yes it does sound like the same issue, I did notice that even after I deleted all the users, if I tried to register a new user with a new email that I know was not present previously the new user ID is sequential so that tells me that even though I deleted all the users, there is still some data existing somewhere in the database that was preventing registrations using any previously known email.
As I said, I just gave up and deleted the database and started fresh, took me much longer to reconfigure everything, but was the only option I had since I couldn't get any user registrations to work.
