Can’t retrieve entity config: core/store_group

I’m testing a full restore of my live magento site to a temp server. I backed up the full /magento/ folder excluding cached dirs etc into a tar package. I restore the files and database to my temp server but whenever I try and load the site I get the error

Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Mage_Core_Exception’ with message ’Can’t retrieve entity config: core/store_group‘ in /var/www/magento/app/Mage.php:407 Stack....

I’m pulling my hair out because I can’t identify where the problem is, base urls are set correctly but this error seems to be happening before the DB connect, if I set the local.xml connect credentials to rubbish the error still appears.

Have tried numerous times on different dev servers but still hit the same error, I’m sure its something simple, can anyone help?

Pete.

Did you get an answer to this - I have the same issue and I can’t work it out - it must be simple.

Thanks
John

Copy lib/Varien/SimpleXML from newer Magento version (1.6, for example) to your Magento installation.

For some reason did you not copy over the new /app/etc/config.xml file? The local.xml in the same folder is the only file that needs to be retained from the old version. local.xml if the file that contains the DB login information.
