  • Switch domain provider

    I'm interested in switching domain providers and I'm sure my vBulletin settings will need to be updated. Does anyone know what settings I need to update in adminicp, php? Do I start with Site Settings / URL / Contact Details?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    If you're keeping the same domain name, you do not need to change anything in vBulletin.

    If you're changing domains then you need to update the URLS under Settings / URL / Contact Details. After that you would need to set the Cookie Path and Cookie domain to their defaults. It isn't recommended to change these unless you run two or more vBulletins on the same domain but customers often change them. You can change these under Settings -> Options -> Cookie and HTTP Header Options.

      Thanks Wayne. We have a few forums on the same domain so thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
