    Okay so I transferred my forum to a new domain and I have no clue what I did wrong. I followed this article: http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/transferring-your-board-to-a-new-host-or-domain/ and now it says General Error
    Could not get style data. I don't know what the problem is...Can anyone help me? I updated the config.php file...I'm not sure what the database port should be so i left it blank...I also changed my boards cookie settings....Can anyone help me please?

    In the guide thingy, it said to shutdown the forum before you transfer it...

    so you transferred to a new domain name, the old name is probably whats causing the problem.

    i would think in the database. your error has changed. did you make the cache folder writable?
    how big is that database? send me a copy if its small enough i'll look.
