I'm running Magento ver 1.9.1 just to get that out there
Here's the situation: The company I work for has 9 different magento stores running on it's live server. I was asked to create a new store-view/store. Rather than develop on a live server, I created a development server. Did a complete transfer of all magento files and database. On this development server I created and built the new site with it's new theme. Since then, we've had 3 weeks of customers/orders added to the live DB. I don't want to lose all that info, so just doing a db import from my development server is out of the question.
Here's what I've tried:
- Moved all theme related files to their proper directory on the live site.
- Imported tables cms_block, cms_page, core_config_data (edited the urls), core_store, and I know design_change table is supposed to be included, but it was empty so I didn't use that one.
- I've changed local.xml to include the new store's info
- Added symlinks in new sites folder as well as the index.php
When I navigate to the new site's url, I get this error message
Front controller reached 100 router match iterations
#0 /var/www/html/MagentoImage/prolinehoods/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Controller/Varien/Front.php(179): Mage::throwException('Front controlle...')

I've looked it up, I know there's a bunch of different things that could be causing it, I've ran through a few different debug solutions and nothing has helped. Specifically the ones here: https://merchantprotocol.com/506/solved-front-controller-reached-100-router-match-iterations/
There's not a lot of information available on the interwebs for the situation that I'm in. I don't know how people develop for magento normally? Am I missing some tables that also need to be imported?
Would I be better off buying some magento extension that exports all customer and sales/order data for me, then just import my new version of the DB and then import the customer and sales data into that one? It seems there's a lot more information available on importing/exporting customer information than there is for the situation I just described.
