|What would be the easiest way to move the file tree of one Pliant Web application
(which includes registered users with certain rights) from one host computer to

|Use the Pliant files browser:
'.tgz download' button on one side,
then '.tgz upload' button on the other.
You can also use Pliant clustering, but it's more complex to set up.
It only worth the effort if you want regular sync from one server to the other.

|Using the 'tgz...' method is very convenient to copy a particular pliant web
application from one logical computer ton another, but I think you will also have
to copy some .pdb from the pliant_security directory to get the registered users.

|In order to replicate users accounts, you can use 'Configure' 'Users'
'Users database client and server global settings for this computer'
and declare a user database server on one side, and a user database client
on the other one, then use 'Broadcast all users accounts' to get all but
administrator accounts automatically replicated.
You need pliant-93h.tgz to have the 'Broadcast all users accounts' button.
Then any change on an account handled by the server will be automatically
forwarded to the client, except for administrator accounts.
Also it will work only if remote execution works from the server to the client.
Check it with 'Configure' 'Remote execution' 'Test remote access'

|Once I copy the server site public key (with the mouse), paste it on my client
site, and click on 'update site informations' (on the client), Pliant says the key
on the client is corrupted. But they seem identical.

|A key is corrupted if Pliant knows both the public and private key and they
don't match each other.
It is a problem only if the key in intended to belong to that peticular machine.
If it's the key of another machine, then it should work provided the public key
