Two installations communicating with each other
I have an install of Photopost Pro for my site birdviewing.com/gallery. I decided to make a dev site and I put it at birdviewing.com/dev. I put the dev photopos at birdviewing.com/dev/gallery and the forum at birdviewing.com/dev/forums.
For some reason, the live site config-inc and config-int adopted the paths for the dev site. When I tried to change them back they wouldn't go. I had to upload the good config files, then adjust the values in the admincp without visiting the site and I was able to get them back. My dev site now has the live site config values.
What could be causing this duplication?
