    Hi,

    I followed following steps to create a test site using the database dump from the main (live) site. I want to know what’s going wrong:-

    [Version: WPMU: 2.7, Buddypress: RC1]

    1. Backup the live-site database using mysqldump

    2. Created the test installation [using new 'test' database] of buddypress on <domain>/test

    3. Tested the test installation – everything is working fine.

    4. Restored the database backup from step#1 to the test database of step # 2.

    5. Refreshed the test-site home page and I got fatal error!

    I guess the site name & paths are encoded in the database. Is there any available fix for this?
