  • Changing server hostname and vB forum URL

    Hi, I'll be changing the actual hostname of the server serving my forums tonight, as well as changing the URL to the forums.

    Is there anything I need to worry about besides going into AdminCP -> Site Name / URL / Contacts and changing the URL?

    When I update the URL on vBulletin's home site (where I download the software) do I need to re-download and re-install my files?

    Thanks,

    If you have the Cookie Domain set in your vBulletin Options then you'll need to adjust that as well. If it's set to (blank) you can leave that though.

    Updating the URL in your members area is enough, you do not need to change the files.
    Best Regards
