  • How to go live?

    I've been setting up our forum on a test server, and it's just about ready to go live. I need to know what to do to move (copy) to the production server.

    We're working with 2 entirely different servers, not a test directory on the same server, if that matters.

    Are there directions for doing this somewhere?

    Any helpful hints?

    The instructions for moving servers are here:

    If you do not have SSH/Telnet the backup can be created using either phpMyAdmin or through the backup feature in the Admin Control Panel. If your forum is very large, these methods may be unreliable and you may have to get your hosting company to perform the backup for you.
