In short: how can I tell an installed instance of RT that it now has a new base directory? Here’s the full story.
I’m using RT 4.4.1 on Debian 8. I just duplicated my instance, to make a test version I can play with without touching the production one I’ve had running for some months. I copied the database, everything in /opt/rt4, and set up a new server block.
The problem now is that RT is still loading my production instance’s configuration files, fonts, and other resources, because somewhere deep inside itself, it still thinks it’s in /opt/rt4. In reality, my test instance lives in /opt/rt4_test, but I don’t know how to tell it that. I’d rather not re-install everything, as we have a lot of modifications. Plus, I had a hard time installing the first (production) instance, and I don’t want to accidentally override anything while trying to get this test instance to work. Is there any way to redefine the base directory so that my test instance will work correctly? Thanks for any ideas!
