Making a copy of a site.

I have been cloning/making copies of my websites. Among other things I:
I go to table gibbonSetting and update the absolutePath and absouteURL.
Update the config.php file on the new server to point to the new database.
What about the $guid which “sets a globally unique id, to allow multiple installs on a single server”. How important is it to change this value when the new and old site are on the same server?

Hi Tieku,

The $guid should be changed if your copied sites all live on the same server, within the same domain/sub-domain. If such sites have the same $guid, then logging into both of the sites causes issues with their session data overwriting each other.

If they are on different domains/sub-domain, then this should not be an issue, as far as I know.
