I'm having quite a few issues with DNN so instead of trying to figure it all out I'm going to to just wipe out the DNN installation and then install fresh. But I still need to use the production database.
I understand at the very minimum I would need to copy over the machinekey and the connection string from the web.config are there any other items that I may need to watch out for?
Also, I'm aware of the media content that has been uploaded and in the various portal directories so I'll put that back in to place after the installation.
