first of all - thanks so much for your great and fast answer!
Your instructions were very clear, thanks for that as well. The only exception to that was your statement "Be sure to clean out the existing files before you start copying over"...
Now the bad news - I've tried two methods in the meantime, yours and "mine", and both didn't work in terms that I finally get my original site (the one from Computer1) running on Computer2, unfortunately. What I get in both cases is the kind of "standard
Joomla site" running on Computer2 (C2), but without any of my modifications as they run on Computer1 (C1).
Basic situation before beginning was: had Joomla installed in WebMatrix using Site from Gallery - this created a first Joomla site named "joomla_15", with an underlying mysql database named "joomla".
What I've then tried so far:
1. method - "my way"
2. Method - your way (after trying my method as described above)
Also, when reviewing the system, server and site settings through Joomla's Admin console, all of the plug-in's, modules, etc. I've added on C1 are missing on C2 (although I have to admit, that I've no idea how those are managed by Joomla - i.e., if there
are references only outside the mysql database, or also inside the mysql database...
I also noted, that even not the site template I've setup as default on C1 has been applied to the site on C2...
Now I'm really out of any ideas what to do to get my original site correctly running on C2...
I really hope you have further hints on what I probably did wrong, missed, or misunderstood...
Thanks in advance,
