    You have just saved me hours, maybe days. I would have got there in the end, but thanks very much.
    I have also moved hosting company and set mine up as a sub-directory of an existing website. Just as an extra. Go to your existing website, ssh on and do a pwd. Do the same on the new website and then you can see what to change it to in the configuration.php

  5. Spent 2 hours to fix this problem! Thank you!

  6. Great advice. had ran website with no problems for 8 months and somehting changed. I fixed the absolute path (deleted a folder) and it started working again. Took me a while to find this post but I am glad I did.
