View Full Version : Changing domain, NOT server
August 24th, 2011, 11:49 AM
I am reading about the domain change and i think I have seen that the things I must to do are:
Change the URL on config-inc and config-int files.
Change the URL on member area.
Change the URL on storage and global options.
Is this correct?, Have I to do something else?

The sticky in this very forum your posting on should assist you on anything you need.
Basically if your just changing a url nothing else like server paths or files are getting moved anywhere you simply go into admin global options and storage options and update the url.

Ok, but, Do I do the changes before or after change de name of de domain and DNS on host panel?

You have to change the domain when you can access the domain so usually before when the application is working otherwise you change domains you can not access it afterwards.

Ok Chuck, I ask vbulletin and they told me that I have to change de domain on the panel plesk before than changes on the admin panel. But in photopost I´ll do it backwards.

You always have to setup the domain to work on your server first. I would assume both domain names would work there then you go into the forum and photopost admin areas and change your urls to the new domain once it propogates.

It seems your using the vb hack from the mod corner to show stuff on the forum. Try editing the variables plugin for that hack and update the urls and server path.

vbulletin admin panel / plugins and Products / manage plugins --> All the site work fine. The process is finished.
