Change the name of the database for an existing site
We need to change the name of the database for an existing site without disturbing any of its activities, which includes content staging. Can you please tell me as what are the corresponding changes we need to make if we change the name of the database, as we tried changing the name of the database in configuration file too but it isn't doing the magic.
To explain the problem in detail, we have three servers (development, QA and Production). We make changes to the site in development server and synchronize all the changes to QA and from QA after testing to the actual live site. Everything is setup and works fine but now for some reason we would like to change the name of the database that QA is pointing to. So we renamed the actual database and then changed the name in configuration file. The problem we now face is that, the setup made between QA and Production for synchronization is completely lost. Please let us know if we are missing any piece.
