    It has been a long while since I did anything web-related… so I am a bit rusty.

    I would like to move my old EE site (the config file says app_version 290…) to a subdomain to keep it somewhat available, and be able to start fresh on the main domain.

    I tried to follow the doc procedure, but all I get is a blank page.

    I created a subdomain:

    and updated index.php and admin.php from $system_path = ‘./system’; to $system_path = ‘../v1/system’;

    Is there something else I need to change?

    Thank you in advance for your time and advices, have a nice day.

    I am really stuck…

    I think I tried all the permutations possible of




    with ../v1/system I get a blank page, and anything else throw me an error message saying I need to fix my path “Your system folder path does not appear to be set correctly. Please open the following file and correct this: index.php”

    Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
