    We have recently bought had change Domain names. Are old one is still good through October so we have it set up as a Parked Domain on our VPS. I wanted to know exactly what steps I need to take to change vBulletin all over to the new Domain itself?

      I was looking for a more specific response. Which exact settings and I would assume that I have to change settings in a file, config? I can't remember and am not sure exactly

      Thanks

        In your Admincp find all the instances of your url and change as desired. Start with
        options Site Name / URL / Contact Details Forum URL, etc, etc. Then proceed onward and down the list. Depending on what addons you have you may only need to change the info in a couple spots. Don't forget to change your email info also.
        Then check your config.php and change anything that may need to be changed there. Possibly database name and username, and forum path if entered there.

            I'm in the process of doing this as well.

            Why is my config file blank? There's nowhere to update settings.
