Ok, can I assume that it's an installation with the latest version (currently 2.4.24) or is it an older 2.4-version?
Sorry for the lack of specificity. Yes, I'm running 2.4.24
Did you get any error message from phpMyAdmin?
When I try to open the new installation, I just get a blank page. … When I try to add a user …
How can you add a user on a blank page? Or do you see this in your old, strange behaving installation?
It (error below) is what I get on the old (actually current, still functioning) version when I try to edit a user:
… I get this error:
Same error if I try to edit a user.
I've seen this some time ago in a few reports. I have to search for it.
Any help much appreciated! The reason I tried to import the database into a new installation was to feel secure in case this one totally crashes. But so far it's still usable, I just can't edit users OR edit settings in the admin >> settings. When I try to changes settings, I get the ever informative error:
