    Our sites are used as help documents - We have a site for a version - e.g Version 1 help site and want to create a Version 2 Help Site.

    The layout is 100% the same and content is 90% the same in Version 1 as Version 2.
    We thought this would be a simple exercise of creating the second site via the sitefinity manager interface. Copying the database into the version 2 helpsite directory and configure in SQL Server, modifying the web.config to point to the new database. Then updating the links in the database as in this troubleshooting article

    Everything seems fine - links in the version 2 site are pointing to the version 2 site as expected. Yet when we edit a page it is editing the Version 1 database not version 2 as it should.

    We have checked and triple checked the web configs - we have completed searches on the database tables for anything relating to the version 1 database and are lost at what to do next

    Hi Nicko,

    Could you please send the two databases as well as the two web.config files so that we could test them locally. If you could provide more details as to how you created the second site, this will be extremely useful as well.

    Just as a side note, the easiest way to recreate an existing site is to use the Export tool. For more information, see Exporting a Site . Note that the tool does not export tags and categories, as well as Forums and Polls modules.

    We are looking forward to your reply.
